The cultural pattern of the region is as interesting as the topography of the region. For the modern day travellers, this region offers an exciting scenic and adventurous tourism experience.


Nowhere in the world, there is such a great collection of towering mountains, peaks, glaciers and pathways except northern areas of Pakistan. In Gilgit-Baltistan, tourists get a chance to visit “Bam-e-Dunya”, the name given to the great Pamir plateau, one of the top six highest mountain ranges of the world.

Nanga Parbat, another towering mountain in the world, is located at the western end of Himalayas in Pakistan.


In addition to these highest peaks, 68 peaks over 7000 metres are also located in the northern Pakistan. Every year, several adventurists from all around the world dare to conquer few of these peaks. Other than mountaineering, tourists can also explore the lower Himalayan valleys of Swat, Kaghan, Naran and Chitral which equally share the beauty and captivating culture of Northern Pakistan.
