Justly famous as a destination for trekking and mountaineering, Pakistan’s Northern Mountains also have a rich cultural diversity. There can be few areas in the world where mountains rise in such awesome splendor as in the far north of Pakistan. Towering above the Chitral Valley, on the northeastern border of Afghanistan, Tirich Mir regions as the highest of the Hindu Kush. Some 400km (250 miles) further east the magnificent Pyramid of K2, the second-highest mountain in the world, crowns the violent spires of Inner Karakoram. To the north of remote Pamir plateau separates South from Central Asia, two continents once joined by the caravan routes of the Old Silk Road, which sliced their way across the passes and through the central Valley of Hunza. The panorama of the Northern Areas of Pakistan is enchanting and simply breathtaking. Deservedly counted among the most rewarding overland journeys on the earth, the Karakoram Highway winds through some of Pakistan’s most culturally diverse and spectacularly beautiful terrain. Lush green fertile, unique landscapes, evergreen forests, cold deserts, snowcapped mountains and great cultural heritage, the region is unique and one of a kind and equally interesting for adventure enthusiasts or common travelers. This visit covers the maximum Northern areas of Pakistan and would be ideal for the tourists who truly love to see Pakistan in depth.
