Overview

From the Khunjerab Pass into China to the port of Karachi on the Arabian Sea, the young country of Pakistan is full of surprises. The northern mountains offer grand vistas of snow-topped mountains with lush green valleys and sparkling blue glacial lakes. Mountain climbers regularly attempt to scale these peaks, which are among the highest in the world. The old cities of Lahore and Rawalpindi offer a look at the ways of ancient traders and invaders and the more recent occupation by the British Raj. The smells of Pakistan are those of highly spiced curries and lamb kebabs. The sounds are the Muslim calls to prayer, which echo through the streets five times a day. Take a tour of this treasure-filled country, and find out how the people there live, learn, and celebrate their various cultures.
