Pakistan, home to a population of almost 200 million people, rich in culture and exotic places for tourism has faded under the dark clouds of terrorism and other mind-numbing concerns.

However, let’s for once not highlight our slip-ups and focus on the brighter side of things.

These exotic destinations will make you want to pack your bags and leave immediately.



1. A location amidst the Seven Kingdoms from Game of Thrones?


01+Kalash+Valley+Chitral+Pakistan.jpg


This is Kalash Valley, Chitral. Where the Nuristani people of Kalash speak ‘kalashamondr’. Breathtaking!


2. A hospitable café by the river in Switzerland?
02+Kalam+Valley+Swat+Pakistan.jpg

Not at all! This is Kalam Valley, Swat. A tourist hot-spot, labeled as ‘mini-Europe’ by many.


3. Volcanoes fascinate everyone. Is this on Dante’s peak?

03+Hingol+Balochistan+Pakistan.jpg


Not exactly, these Mud volcanoes can be found in different regions of Balochistan. This particular one rests in Hingol, Balochistan.


4. The magical waters from the Chronicles of Narnia?

04+Ghizer+River+in+Gilgit+Baltistan+Pakistan.jpeg


Can’t be. This is the exotic Ghizer River in Gilgit-Baltistan.
Wrapped around lush, green and pleasant landscapes, Ghizer is a diamond in the dirt.


5. Definitely something taken out of a Hollywood movie?

05+Rakaposhi+Haramosh+Mountains+Karakoram+Pakistan.jpeg


Not to be. These are the Rakaposhi-Haramosh Mountains, Karakoram. Amongst the largest in the world, these mountains are a trekker’s fantasy.


6. Did you just open your window in a Khatmandu resort?

06+Hunza+Valley+Gilgit+Balistan+Pakistan.jpeg


A window does open, but from the Hunza Valley, Gilgit-Balistan. The Burushaski speaking locals live a happy, peaceful life amidst cold weathers.


7. A temple for the faithful situated near the holy river Ganges?

07+Katas+Raj+Temple+in+Chakwal+Punjab+Pakistan.jpeg


The Katas Raj Temple in Chakwal, Punjab. Remains of the Buddhist Stupa, the Katas site houses the Satgraha, a group of seven ancient temples.


8. Foreigners sidelining along the blue lines of Goa?

08+Gadani+Beach+Karachi+Pakistan.jpeg


The Arabian Sea says no! Cape Monze or locally known as Ras Muari, the Cape Mount Beach floats near the Gadani Beach, Karachi.


9. Stone-walls in the Grand Canyon or Mount Rushmore?

09+Hingol+National+Park+in+Hingol+Balochistan+Pakistan.jpeg


The muscled formation of Hingol National Park in Hingol, Balochistan. Home to exotic wildlife, the Hingol National Park can serve as a stupendous tourist spot.


10. An artist’s imagination as he draws a landscape in Iceland?

10+Shandur+Lake+Gilgit+Baltistan+Pakistan.jpeg


A view of the frozen sunset captured in Shandur Lake, Gilgit-Baltistan. Where the locals like to play Polo and live ordinary lives, Shandur serves as a tourist’s delight.

11. Wooden cottages on a lush top in Ireland?

11+Arang+Kel+Azad+Kashmir+Pakistan.jpeg


This astounding, lush green tourist spot is Arang Kel, Azad Kashmir. Located on an altitude of 8,379 feet, this striking sight is a 2km trek from Kel.


12. The dukes and duchesses of Scotland must’ve walked on these fields?

12+Dharam+Sar+Lake+Kaghan+Valley+Pakistan.jpeg


Overcast weather in Dharam Sar Lake, Kaghan Valley. Resting in the Mansehra district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, this attraction was largely rebuilt after 2005’s earthquake.


13. A heaven to the foreigners. Must be Brazil or Chile?

13+Sajikot+Khyber+Pakhtunkhwa+Pakistan.jpg


The double-bed waterfall rests in Sajikot, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Stagnant in the Hazara region, Sajikot would put any South American country to shame.


14. An insight on the dazzling caves of South Africa?

14+Moola+Chotok+in+Khuzdar+Balochistan+Pakistan.jpeg


This tourism deprived sight is known as Moola Chotok in Khuzdar, Balochistan. Amidst tense hold of nationalists in the Jhalawan belt, Chotok seems like a lost cause.


15. Where are the tourists? This must lead to the Niagara Falls?

15+Neelam+Valley+Kashmir+Pakistan.jpg


Fortunately, no! This peach of a view is from the Neelam Valley, Kashmir. One of the better tourist ranges in Pakistan, this valley is a 200km long bow-shaped, deeply forested region.


16. Book-cover material. Has to lie in the outskirts of Belgium?

16+Attabad+Lake+Hunza+Valley+Pakistan.jpg


Wrong again! This shot from heaven was captured at the Attabad Lake, Hunza Valley. Created by a landslide in 2010, the locals like prefer referring to it as the Gojal Lake.


17. The astounding waterfalls from Leura Cascades, Australia?

17+Pir+Ghaib+Balochistan+Pakistan.jpeg


No chance. This is an awe-inspiring view of Pir Ghaib, Balochistan. Locals here believe in the myth of the Invisible Saint (Pir Ghaib), who was saved by the Almighty

Ski Federation of Pakistan (SFP) will keep their expectations realistic, with Pakistan’s sole athlete Muhammad Karim takes the stage on February 19 in Sochi

Growing up among some of the world's highest mountains in the northern region of Gilgit-Baltistan Pakistan, Karim caught the skiiing bug early -- albeit with none of the expensive kit that many Western skiers grow up with.

"I started skiing at the age of four years on wooden skis made by my uncle. Our schools were closed in the winter and skiing was the only way to spend our holidays,” he told AFP.

While Muhammad Abbas, who became the first Pakistani to compete in Winter Olympics in 2010, Karim was also expected to put up a good show. Abbas ended up performing better than many skiers from ski-developed countries. Even though this time the competition is tough, we want Karim to complete the spirit finish course and not fall down.

He added that Pakistan and CERN are working in close collaboration from quite some time and the work from Pakistan’s industries is favourable.

Also present at the occasion Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) Chairman Dr Ansar Parvez said that the membership will open opportunities for the locals to learn from the developed world.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, on February 11, had told a four member CERN delegation that Pakistan is hoping for associate membership of the European organisation.

Baseless Report in the Gulf News

Responding to questions, the spokesperson rejected the allegations contained in a recent editorial in the Gulf News as baseless and malicious.

Pakistan and UAE enjoy long standing, deep rooted and brotherly relations.  In the case of Expo 2020, Pakistan was committed to vote for Turkey which requested for Pakistan’s support as far as back in May 2011. The UAE entered the race much later. This fact was explained to the UAE leadership. It was also conveyed that if Turkey were to withdraw its candidature, Pakistan would not only support the UAE but also lobby for it. Consequently, when Turkey withdrew its candidature, Pakistan voted in favour of the UAE in the subsequent rounds of voting. Pakistan’s supportive efforts have been acknowledged by the UAE leadership, which has conveyed its appreciation at the highest level.

Pakistan has always stood by its friends and would continue to do so. Responsible newspapers are expected to ensure greater accuracy in their reporting.
