Last night, while waiting for my friend coming to pick me up, I chat with my friend from Pakistan. We talk many things to distract my hunger feeling. We talk about traditional food, our activities and other stuff. I was so excited when we talk about the beautiful places to visit especially the one that rarely been discussed since it really change my perspective on Pakistan.
So far, what I understand about Pakistan is a nuclear weapon country populated heavily by Muslim and experiencing not only international dispute with India but also domestic political chaos especially related to terrorism. Everything we heard about Pakistan in the media is all about terrorism and bombing. So it seems to me that the country is scaring place where we never feel safe to do our activities even for sleep. Even though that’s all true, but I just found Pakistan is not merely about that. It has so many beautiful places that never cross my mind. I even just know that Pakistan has snow!!!
Here some example of those amazing spot in Pakistan:
Murree is known as the Queen of Hill. It can be reached by one hour drive to the northeast from Islamad. It is a recommended spot for your summer holiday especially when you want to get en escape from the city life.
>> K2 Mountain
This is a new fact that I just know. Pakistan has K2 Mountain which is the second highest mountain after Everest! Having 6000m high, this mountain is always covered by snow. If you are a climber, this mountain gives you a challenge that would make your adrenalin goes up.
Beside these two examples, there are still many other scenery that deserved to be visited. Kumail mentioned so many that I confused to search in Google. Probably Mr. Google was getting dizzy helping me clicking all those spot. Just find out Hunza, Kagan Naran, Khunjerab, and Skardu. They are all great places.
What I regret is that some places should be closed because of military operation. Swat valley was totally awesome but it was closed now. Do hope it would over soon.
Thank you Kumail, you give me the other side of your country. It is a lovely country. We should talk more since I know there are more unique characters that I haven’t known.
