The British Backpacker Society has ranked Pakistan No.1 out of 20 World Adventure Travel Destinations.

Pakistan is blessed; it is the world’s most glaciated space outside the polar region, it has four of the world’s fourteen highest peaks across the world’s three greatest mountain ranges Hindu Kush, Himalayas and Karakoram that come together near Gilgit. It is where the Asian and Eurasian tectonic plates collided; it is the birthplace of Asia’s major religions, has ancient forests, flora and fauna, high alpine wetlands and is also home to the most unique and endangered animal species of our world.

The remote valleys and majestic mountains offer some breathtaking views that will permeate the cloisters of your memory and inspire for a lifetime. We offer structured experiential learning programs to engage with local communities, undertake wild life conservation projects and research opportunities on water bodies, forests and other habitats.

Samuel Joynson (26) said Pakistan was chosen in top spot, because it was “home to some of the world’s friendliest and most hospitable people, and offers some of the world’s most dramatic mountain scenery.”

Adam Sloper (25) said that the country’s Karakoram Highway was probably the most special road trip on the globe. “It links Islamabad with the mythical Hunza Valley … through peaks, valleys and glaciers so dramatic that your camera will inevitably run out of film. If you love mountains, there is just nowhere on earth like it,” he said.
