Tourism in Pakistan


The tourist trade in Pakistan is flourishing these days. It helps us to earn valuable foreign exchange. Pakistan abounds in natural beauty as reflected in the northern areas of our country. Our Swat valley reminds the European tourists of Switzerland.
There are high mountains with snow covered peaks here. Among these mountains is also the K-2 peak, the second highest in the world. The Nanga Parbat peak is the sixth in the order of the highest peaks in the world. There are glaciers in Gilgit which provide excellent opportunities for winter sports. There are many beautiful lakes in the midst of high mountains.
We have many historical places worth-seeing like the site of the ancient cities of Mohen-jo-daro, Harappa, Taxilla, etc. We have historical monuments in and around the city of Lahore.
