Beauty of Pakistan

Sorry Fellows that i havent been able to update for a while. I have been extremely busy! Oh by the way its been a year today since I've joined VT ........so I wanna thank everyone for their support!

Pakistan! A Paradise for tourists!
Pakistan is a really beautiful country. Coming here when you are in South Asia is a must.


The North of Pakistan contains some of the world's highest peaks including K-2, the world's second highest mountain. There are also huge National parks which contain different species of rare animals and places surrounded by beautiful trees and sky-touching mountains. The glaciers in North Pakistan are only second to glaciers in the polar regions and the SIachen glacier is the world's longest glacier. There are also beautiful rock pieces like the Trango Towers and there are pencil shaped peaks like Lela Peak.There are also green meadows with beautiful lakes and colourful flowers. Here are some of the most beautiful areas in Pakistan.


My Pages: Currently, my completed pages include Hunza, Nathia Gali, Deosai and Abbottabad. Kalam is still under construction.

Chitral

Chitral is one beautiful area in Northen Pakistan. Actually it is not a part of the Northern Areas but it is a part of the NWFP Province. The Hindu Kush mountain ranges, superb greenery and the young blue rivers are the major source of attraction in this area. There is also the Garam Chasma which is a hot spring believed to have healing powers and the famous Kalaish valleys.

Deosai "The strange mountain wilderness"

Deosai is a strange treeless plateau in the middle of nowhere (almost) and is surrounded by glorious spellbinding moutains. The area is in the region of Baltistan and is the highest plateau on Earth at 4200 m in any place other than Tibet. It has a length of about 100 km and same width. There are lots of flowers, lakes, sparkling white streams and green fields in this plateau but no trees and no mountains for about 100 km though we can see them. The area is host to one of the highest populations of the Brown bear and there are also a lot of other animals like the snow leapord and immense marmots.

The Kaghan Valley

The lush green valleys of Kaghan are surrounded by the Himalayan mountains. The town of Naran is the centre of activity and this area is one of the most beautiful places in Pakistan. Half an hour jeep ride leads to Lake Saif - ul -Muluk, one of the most BEAUTIFUL lakes in the world. There are also several beautiful plateuas like the Lalazar and Shogran plateaus.

The Swat Valley "The Mini-Switzerland"

This area is in the NWFP Province like the Kaghan Valley and is called the Switzerland of Asia. It is pretty comparable to the Kaghan Valley and is extremely beautiful. It is famous like the Kaghan Valley for its catch of trout fish. There is also a ski resort at Malam Jabba. The centre of Activity is by no doubt the twin cities of Saidu Sharif and Mingora but these cities arent awfully attractive so Kalam is the centre of stay for tourists. Miandam is another beautiful town .

Murree and the Galiyats.

Murree is a hill station about 40 km north of Islamabad. It is very crowded and is becoming polluted every day. However it is easily accessible and is a hill station of the Himalayan mountains. Murree has a British air in it with churches and British style bungalows. However, the real beauty of the area is on the road from Murree to Abbottabad on which there are several hill stations which are much higher and more beautiful than Muree on which the most famous one is Nathiagali.

Abbottabad and its surroundings

Abbottabad is a city just below the Murree hills but still its weather is pleasant. It has been named after its first British Governor Sir James Abbott and has even a more British air than Murree. On a rainy day, when walking through Abbottabad's residential areas it feels like you are in England. Abbottabad is famous for its gold courses and its European style bungalows. The Simla Hill Resort is famous among tourists as well as the Thandiani Hill Resort. Thandiani means "Cold" in the local language and is a wonderful hill station just about 2 hrs drive from Abbottabad. It is completely unspoiled and gives absolutely wonderful views.

Ziarat

Ziarat is a hill station in Baluchistan. The area has a height of 2500 metres with snowfall in the winters. There are several different types of trees here like pine, juniper and other strange species. There are also special springs and the Quaid-e-Azam Residency which is the place the Quaid (founder of Pakistan) used to live in.

There are also several other beautiful places in Pakistan but unfortunately I'm out of space in my homepage. See my albums and other travelouges to find more about them. They Include Gilgit, Hunza, Skardu, Khaplu, Hushe, Concordia and the Ghizar areas.
