Although less than 70 years old, Pakistan has a history that stretches to the very beginnings of human civilization and spans numerous empires. Each has left its legacy; the great Indus Valley Civilization cities of Moenjo-Daro and Harrappa, the beautiful sculptures of Bdddhist Gandhara, the shrines and mosques of earlsy Muslim pilgrims and invaders, the magnificent monuments of the Mughals and the colonial architecture of the British. But brace yourself also for an emerging, dynamic Pakistan, responding as rapidly and diversely as any other country to the challenges of the approaching millennium. The tourist brochures paint a picture of timeless, unchanging traditions, and although life in the rural heartlands may have changed little, in Lahore computer programmers lead the way in software development, while doctors pioneer new surgeries and treatments.
The media paints a bloody picture of violence, danger and fanaticism, but prepare yourself rather for a lesson in human warmth, generosity and hospitality. Despite the wild warring tribesmen image and the current tragic situation in embroidered by media, Pakistan is still in many ways one of the safest countries in Asia in which to travel. You are far more likely to find yourself accepting endless invitations to stay or eat in people’s houses, or desperately trying to persuade someone you just met on the bus that there’s really no need for him to pay for your ticket, than reporting a theft or mugging or trying to get rid of somebody who is after your money. The sheer diversity of peoples, cultures and traditions meanwhile make traveling in Pakistan a continually fascinating experience.
Everyone paints a picture of stunning natural beauty or this heaven, an almost unbelievable range of landscapes and environments; mighty rivers, huge deserts, fertile plains, thick forests and towering mountains. And for once, nobody has got it wrong. Mountaineers were amongst the first to discover the full glory of Pakistan’s magnificent Karakoram, Hindu Kush and Himalayan ranges. Trekkers followed in increasing numbers, and today spectacular feats of engineering have pushed roads through these breathtaking mountains, opening them up to all. But while most people flock to the mountains, the southern half of the country conceals equally magnificent wonders of a different kind. Simply the heaven for who love adventure tours or culture tours.
Country full of surprises; traveling through the remotest backwaters of Baluchistan, you might suddenly find yourself the honored guest in the palatial residence of a local tribal chief (no doubt educated at Oxford or Harvard); just as you are at the end of your tether at the overwhelmingly male-dominated social set-up, you might meet an outspoken Pakistani woman campaigning to promote female education. There is always something or someone around the next corner ready to shatter any simple generalizations or stereotypes you may be tempted to construct for yourself.
Most of all, Pakistan is marvel of Asia and Heaven on Earth to be explored, is a four season's destination. A tour or adventure tour to this enchanting land is equally interesting for people from all walks of life. The diverse activities while visiting Pakistan include history, archaeology, geography, culture, adventure and special interest, altogether. The majestic Indus River passing through the whole stretch of the country has been a cradle of a developed and civilized system of life as ancient as those of Egypt and Mesopotamia. It is also known that this region has tracks that can be traced back to the earliest possible life on earth. If Moenjodaro, Harappa, Taxila are attractions for the people with an interest in history and archaeology, then K-2 (8616m) and Nanga Parbat(8125m) are the top priority for adventure enthusiasts for their adventure holidays. A Pakistan tour or specially the adventure tour to Northern Areas Pakistan simply proves your dreams prove true to being in a utopia.
