Hiking / Trekking
If you love challenges and desire to tread the fascinating unexplored trails
made by nature or wish to explore an entirely different culture and living
style, then hiking/trekking in Pakistan is for you. Undoubtedly, the trails in the
great Karakoram ranges are the ones that will attract you the most, but
other parts of Pakistan also have vast opportunities for enjoying a trekking
expedition. So much so that you will invariably feel drawn towards it again
and again once you have experienced its magic.
So what do you exactly come across while trekking in Pakistan? Well, the
snow capped mountains definitely have a prime place. Accompanying them are
the rushing rivers, cascading waterfalls and lush forests,
brilliant with scented flowers, chirping birds and dreamily colourful
butterflies. Offering a bit of contrasting beauty are the rugged terrains
that have their own charm despite being devoid of any beauty.
Adding more variety and fun to your trekking expedition in Pakistan are the
villages where life is simple but carries a warmth that is unfortunately
missing on the plains. The people residing here are not advanced and
therefore offer you an opportunity to know, understand and enjoy a lifestyle
that is at its most basic and unhurried self.
Moreover, there are a lot more other attractions in form of Gandhara
Buddhists monasteries etc in store for you while trekking in Pakistan. You
just need to keep yourself ready for any kind of surprises that might spring
up during your expedition.
What is perhaps more interesting is that trekking in Pakistan offers every
kind of trekker to enjoy himself. Whether you prefer an easy low altitude
trek for simple fun or difficult high altitude trek for real challenge,
Pakistan has it all. You just need to pick your choice and start off a
journey off the beaten track.
