A little more about Pakistan
The southern plains are dotted with superb examples of Mughal architecture which include both magnificent tombs and elaborate gardens. The real beauty of the country is revealed amidst the mountains of the infamous North-West frontier region. So vividly portrayed in countless books, poems and films, towering snow-capped peaks, many exceeding 7,000 metres, dominate the skyline and the valleys below offer superb trekking. Steep ravines, sparkling rivers, isolated villages, wildflower meadows, apricot groves, forts and the inimitable proud tribespeople all combine to preserve an atmosphere of a bygone age.
