Mountain Tourism Pakistan
Mountain Tourism Pakistan is one of the largest tourism segments of Pakistan tourism industry. God has blessed Pakistan with three mighty mountain ranges of Hindukush, Himalaya and Karakorum that is unique in the world and no any other country on this earth may claim that, so Pakistan is truly roof of the world. There is so much to do in the mountains of the north of Pakistan, either it is trekking tour or climbing the mountain Pakistan is the best choice for such expeditions.
There are fourteen peaks higher than 8000m in the world and five out of them are in Pakistan that is a big landmark for any country in the world. Karakoram Highway is the longest mountain route passing through Himalaya, Karakoram and Hindukush via Khunjerab Pass (5000m), the highest mountain pass in the world. The scenery itself is so beautiful that one can enjoy when driving through these mountains. The valleys of Skardu, Chitral, Kaghan, Swat and Hunza are one of the most panoramic valleys on earth. So I can conclude by saying that Pakistan is paradise for mountain lovers.
Mountain tourism Pakistan offers the equal options to hold mountain sports such as climbing, water rafting, gliding and skiing. Naltar Skiing resort and Malam Jabba ski resort are one of the international standard ski resorts of the world. Some mountaineers also find K2 Concordia and Nanga Parbat peaks one of the top attractions for the global skiers. The valley of Hunza and Karakorum Mountains are the best options for gliding sport. Some international gliding events have already taken place in Hunza valley. Gilgit and Indus rivers are full of opportunities for the sport of white water rafting. There are many expeditions that have already enjoyed this sport in the mountains of Karakorum and Himalaya and many more are supposed to do in near future.
