Mountain Tourism

Mountain Tourism is one of the largest tourism segments of Pakistan tourism industry. God has blessed Pakistan with three mighty mountain ranges of Hindukush, Himalaya and Karakoram 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.
