Facts & Figuares, Pakistan: 8 reviews and 4 photos

  Mount Trichmir, Hindukush
by Faiza-Ifrah

Favorite thing: Pakistan is a medium sized country spanning over 810,000 square kilometers from the extremes of the marshes Runn of Katch in south-east to the mountain range of Hindukush in the north-west.

The tourists should be able to understand that due to its size, it would never be possible to explore all its touristic resources in a short duration of time.

The size makes it slightly smaller than Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Holland and Belgium put together.

For the USA, Pakistan would cover all the New England and mid-Atlantic States plus Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina. In a comparison with southern states, it would be slightly smaller than Texas and Louisiana combined. In yet another comparison with Western states, it would be bigger than California, Washington and Oregon put together.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
