Pakistan a  Country Worth Seeing Destination :

Pakistan  is a country of outstanding  natural beauty and diverse cultures. From the highest mountains of the world  to the vast  Indus Plains and deserts, Pakistan takes diversity to new heights. The country stands at the crossroads  of the  world where the cultures of the Middle East and Asia meet and become one. Pakistan is a physically dramatic country and this drama shapes and influences the everyday life of the people.

The geography of Pakistan is a blend of landscapes varying from plains to deserts,  forests, hills, and plateaus ranging from the coastal areas of the Arabian Sea in the south to the high mountains of central Asia in the north. The Himalayas and Karakorams are the world’s newest mountains formed in the result of collision between Indian geological plate and the Asian plate. The Karakoram Range is about 500 km in length and the most heavily glaciated part of the world outside the polar region. Pakistan has the densest concentration  of high mountains in the world with five peaks over 8,000 meters, including K2, the second  highest mountain on Earth.

In  the north  of Pakistan, there is  another great mountain range of Hindu Kush which is 800 km long and stretches between central  Afghanistan and northeren Pakistan.  The highest point in the Hindu Kush is Tirich Mr (7,708 m) towering above the Chitral Valley in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. The mountain range separates Central Asia from South Asia.

The Indus River is Pakistan’s lifeline and with it  tributaries,  provides water for the largest irrigation  system in the world. The Indus is 3,200 kilometers long and is the third longest river in Asia. Rising in  Tibet,  it passes through Ladakh  in  northern India  and  enters Pakistan flowing  northwestwards.  The Indus separates the Himalaya and Karakoram ranges, plunging through some of the world’s deepest  gorges as it twists between  the mountains  until it finally finds an exit south to the plains of Punjab and Sindh.
