This blog is all about the beauty Pakistan has. I have personally traveled almost everywhere on the Pakistan map except K2 – the largest peak in Pakistan and the 3rd highest in the world. I plan to go there soon insh Allah. So the first time ever i went to a trip to northern Pakistan was 2009. A group of friends who rented a Toyota 25 seater, left from Lahore at 12 midnight!
We first traveled to abbotabad and then took the karakoram highway which is one of the most highest and dangerous highways in the world! Our first stop was besham and then we moved on to chillas! this is a picture of the KKH (Karakoram Highway) i took myself at sunrise!
So after reaching at chillas we moved to Nanga Parbat base camp which is a mesmerizing place. when we got there, instantly i felt at peace. what a view it was. This is a picture i took myself of nanga parbat
After seeing this beautiful mountain and glacier we moved higher towards hunza valley which is almost 30 hours drive from Lahore! Let me tell you a fact about hunza which you would be surprised to hear is that hunza has a literacy rate of 99 percent! we stayed at the eagles nest hotel which is at the top of the valley, here is a picture of my view!
The last place i stopped was in the deosai plains which is towards Afghanistan. We drove by a whole range of mountains to find a beautiful lake which is one of the highest lakes in the world. It’s name is Shoeser lake and its my favourite place personally 🙂 Here’s a picture of the beauty!
I bet you didn’t know that these places existed in Pakistan, well now you do and you must travel across northern Pakistan at least once in your life. And for all those who think i’m lying about going to these places here is my picture at the lake! Cheers!
