Planning to travel to Pakistan? Travelling to the northern areas of Pakistan and Ladakh, India to trek may be a worthwhile experience. When you’re planning to climb mountains and to visit places you’ve never heard of before, these are the perfect places. Experience boarding a crowded train to the country’s capital, Islamabad, then unto the mighty Karakoram Highway towards the northern areas. If your headed to the valley of Gilgit, the region’s launching point. The bus ride up to the Karakoram Highway is an adventure in itself. Looking out a window, munching tiny sweet grapes grown on precious oases along the way. The wheels of the rickety bus creep inches away from what would seem like an ill-scheduled date into oblivion. Begin dreaming of camels and donkeys bearing fine silk, spices and precious stones from kingdoms and princely states marching along the same desolate landscape. Visit Pakistan and have a glimpse of this little known region of the “Roof of the World”. Trekking to this region have a lot of rewards. Meet with the friendly locals along the trail and get to know their gracious and friendly culture. The knowledge of having propelled oneself to the remotest places of the world sits well in the human psyche. The Northern areas of Pakistan is arguably the best place to lose oneself in.
