Pakistan’s tourism industry may have been hampered for the past two decades, but the ancient valleys, loose visa restrictions and truly high-level visits mean that this fabulous country has finally accepted what it should be. Here is a list of the top five in Pakistan in 2020.

Pakistan’s Mountains are 2,265 feet higher than the sum of China and Nepal, making it an ideal place for adventure travelers and bold hikers. We have all heard of K2, Nanga Parbat and many other mountain ranges crowned by Pakistan. Indeed, of the 13 mountains over 8000 meters in the world, there are 5 in Pakistan.
However, there are hundreds of unknown peaks with a range between 6000 and 8,000 meters, which means they are still higher than any mountain in Europe, Africa, North America, South America, and Australia.
The 12,250-foot Shandur Pass is home to the world’s tallest polo arena. The Shandur Pass is a high mountain pass at an altitude of 3,700 meters (12,200 feet), located in Chitral, Pakistan. The road to the boardwalk is difficult. Wait on the gravel road and drive only in first and second gear. In one of the most beautiful but isolated landscapes on the floor, steep hairpins rise/fall steeply.
The path to the top of the mountain is a rocky, uneven road, sometimes a dangerous mountain road. This road is in a shocking situation and requires intense nerves to negotiate. Any obstacles along the edges provide symbol protection only. The biggest and most famous polo tournament of the year is held in this corridor, which is the highest polo stadium in the world
Meet the Kalash people in the Hindu Kush, known for their shell heads and embroidery. The Hindu Kush, a large mountain system in Central Asia. Generally, it is about 500 miles (800 kilometers) long and about 150 miles (240 kilometers) wide.
The Hindu Kush is one of the important hydrological basins of Central Asia, forming part of the vast Alpine region that runs through Eurasia from east to west. It extends from the northeast to the southwest, from the Indus Valley to the south, and divides the Amu Darya (ancient Oxus) to the north. In the east, Hindu Kush strengthened the Pamir chain near the border between China and Kashmir (controlled by Pakistan and Afghanistan), after which it extended southwest of the country through Pakistan and Afghanistan and eventually merged into a smaller distribution in western Afghanistan area. The highest peak is the Tirch Mir, which rises near the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan and reaches 25,230 feet (7,690 meters).
In Lahore, the breathtaking scenery is a scene of 100,000 crowded believers in the 17th-century Badshahi Sandstone Mosque.
Badshahi is the second largest mosque in Pakistan, second only to the Faisal Mosque in Islamabad. Badshahi Masjid is home to over 55,000 loyal people. The design of the Badshahi Mosque is closely related to the Jame Mosque in Delhi, India, which was built by the emperor’s father Shah Jahan in 1648.
It stretches from the northwest border to the ancient mother rock, which is one of the most amazing ways in the world. The Karakoram Highway (commonly referred to as KKH) is a highway that extends from Abbottabad in Pakistan to Kashgar, Xinjiang Province in western China, about 1300 kilometers.
The Karakoram Highway is one of the greatest engineering achievements of the 20th century. Today, the world’s highest international border height of the Khunjerab Pass is 4,800 meters (16.00 feet).
The Karakoram Highway officially begins in Abbottabad, and the city has been known for everything other than KKH in recent years. Most likely, your journey will start from Rawalpindi. Rawalpindi is located 14 kilometers south of Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan.
