Northern Pakistan- the place to be in summers
Pakistan offers a diverse range of places for tourism. The most scenic and picturesque places are up north. Tourism areas include the Karakoram Mountain Range that you can drive through. It’s a destination that has a lot to offer its visitors. Apart from the glaciers and valleys of the north there are deserts of Balochistan and the coast of Karachi. From the ancient bazaars in Quetta to the rich Mughal heritage found in Lahore, our country is packed with sites for tourists.
This piece is going to talk about the Northern areas as they offer a retreat from the scorching heat of summers in most cities of the countries. Pakistan Tour & Travel offers several packages for travel up north.
