This is my personal life experience and my adventure through Pakistan over the last year, what it taught me, and how it changed my life.

I do this work from my heart and soul- to inspire others and to promote a more positive connection between all. I film everything myself using go pros/tripod mounts, drone cameras, and occasionally handing my camera to a friend I meet along the way. I edit all of my own videos and content and manage all of my accounts- by myself without help. This is a FULL-TIME JOB- with the little pay I receive from youtube views and a few donations. I’m forever grateful for all of the love, support, encouraging words, thumbs up, shares and subscribers, who help keep me going. If you like this video, are touched or feel inspired, please share- and help me on my quest to share the love of humanity with the world. Peace and many blessings are upon all of you. Ameen.

5 small businesses for locals in Northern areas Pakistan | Pakistan Travel Guide

5 small business ideas for locals living in Northern areas of Pakistan where thousands of tourists rush each year to explore the beauty, culture, and cuisines. Benefits of tourism are that it uplifts the economy of that destination, pressures governments to invest in road infrastructures, mainstream media gives coverage to that place, big investors come to that place for investments in hotels. Current government regime completely focuses on the tourism sector of Pakistan, Chinese have invested in road infrastructure so there are some opportunities for locals to set up a few businesses in Northern areas of Pakistan. 

1.Local Cuisine Tuck Shop  

With a small investment, one can make a small tuck shop to sell tea, Pakoras, Samosas, local traditional cuisine like if you are in Gilgit Hunza you can sell local traditional foods like Local soups, Manthoo, Chapshuro, etc. Sale of these items is on a high note and one can earn thousands on a single day. On our tours to Gilgit Baltistan, we often stay at these local Dhabbas for refreshment and they had very strong offerings that give a taste of uniqueness

2.Handicraft selling  

Tourists who visit Northern areas are very interested in buying souvenirs for their friends and family or they want to have a memory along with them. In PTDC Skardu you will see people from Lahore have a handicrafts shop selling different handicrafts, these items are very cheap to buy but sales at high rates because no one can value these products as they are mostly handmade. 

3.Local Tourist Guide

Become a local tourist guide, offer people to tell stories, help them find tourist attractions, food stalls, museums, good hotels, locate the transport. You need to have very strong connections with hotels, restaurants and tp know each tourist spot, we must say you need to know the art of selling the best experiences to your clients.

4.Adventure Sports Shop

Sell adventure goods to tourists, like cycling on rent, hiking shoes, skiing types of equipment, hiking sticks, binocular, local maps, Imported jackets, freebies, Ludo Games, etc. Adventure sports shops are famous all around the world and they are earning a handy amount in peak season. For locals, it’s easy to maintain the shop, could do the B2B venture with an online sports shop in Karachi/Lahore and Islamabad. 

5.Airbnb Rentals

A new term of guest house rental is turning the rooms of your house into guest rooms offering basic amenities. We have seen this trend becoming very famous in Neelum Valley Azad Kashmir where locals turning their houses in rental guest rooms at the peak season of summers. Maybe in Hunza, this trend will be more successful in the near future. 

Pakistan Tour Packages are available for Northern areas of Pakistan in 2020, best price guaranteed with 100% quality services. Check out our review on Facebook and TripAdvisor.

Girl with Green Passport

Men say Pakistani women could not travel alone then I say you don’t know Anum, Watch me !

Travelling is the biggest motivation for me to earn and to live life, I don’t count how much countries I visited but what experiences I had. I wish Pakistani Passport should be as that we don’t have to queue in line to get that.

Anum is promoting tourism in Pakistan, her aim is to motivate girls to travel and to had experience what it feel like, don’t stuck at one place try to explore and get motivated by travelling to live a good life.

Anum is very active on social platforms like Facebook, Instagram and youtube, she had shared different travel  vlogs on youtube as well.

Anum writes about herself :

Hi! I am Anam, born & raised in Karachi, Pakistan. I was bitten by travel bug few years ago in 2012 on my first trip abroad to Dubai along with my grad school fellows to study and research on “international retail”. It was then when I realized that if one small city so close to my home could contain such another world and so much charm, what all would be there in the whole wide world. It struck me that there is no point in sticking to one place. And so I started saving. Unfortunately for the next 2 years I was unable to materialize my wish to travel beyond Dubai because of my parent’s cultural notion; what the heck is even single female solo travel?

In 2014, I managed to get thru that barrier & a friend planted the idea of getting US visa to travel for Tomorrowworld. And that is where my adventure started. In 3 years, I’m 20 countries and 35+ cities down, while I am still perusing my full time career in advertising.

5 Adventure Destinations in Pakistan You Love To Travel In 2019

They say once a year you should go somewhere you have never been before. Because to travel is to live. These 5 heavens in Pakistan will certainly leave you breathless. You will want to come back again I promise. Let’s begin.

Naltar:

Your journey to Naltar will begin upon leaving Karakorum highway by Gilgit and up the journey is a two-hour jeep ride because the track is so difficult you cannot take cars. Many people are hesitant because of the road conditions but trust me when I say,the beauty and treasure ahead are worth it.

Naltar is truly magical with its forests and fresh air. The three lakes are collectively known as Bashkiri lakes. The vast valley leading to the lake is lush green and you will see it attacks many Gujjar nomads with their livestock. They graze during the summer months.

So the first lake is Satrangi. Not even your wildest dreams will prepare you for what you will experience. Clear water, landscape, so many colors reflecting from the surface of the water. The pictures I took were not good enough to describe what I felt standing there.

The second Lakepari was different and bigger and people go on a boat ride which was fun. Also, there was a campsite along the lakeshore. The third lake has to be visited on foot because it is not accessible. It is a 45-minute trek. You will enter a ‘maidan’ 10 minutes into it and far ahead I could see the snow capped mountains. The air grew steadily colder but still determined we moved on.

At last the most beautiful Firoza lake came into view and my excitement grew. It was breathtaking. Sitting on my slope it seemed the lake and the maidan flowed side by side in harmony. On my way back I was already on the conclusion that this was life-changing.

Baboon Valley:

Some places live in our hearts and baboon is certainly one of them. Lushgreenmeadows and tall trees reaching for the clear sky. Breathtaking is the word. I even saw horses running; it seemed to come straight out of a movie.

 Baboon is in Neelum valley, from Islamabad it takes 4 hours to reach muzaffarabad that is the gateway to Azad Kashmir. From muzaffarabad to kutton, theroad leads to khillun and then destination baboon.

I mostly spent my time walking in the meadows with cattle grazing and soaking in the white snowy patches. It’s the kind of place where you can rest and meditate, as weird as it sounds. It is peaceful and beautiful at the same time. Definitely go there if you want to clear your mind and soul.

Dudipatsar:

The next on the list was Dudipatsar. It is a lake that circles the Lulusar natural park. It lies in kaghan valley Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. The park and lake are accessible for four months a year from June to September.

During the first phase of the journey, the road was alright and can be traveled by an ordinary vehicle. Onward a good jeep is needed. The trip is amazing. ‘Dudi’ means white, ‘pat’means mountains and ‘sar’Means Lake.

Go in the month of July, the lake is lush greenish blue and the landscape green. Again I found myself surrounded by snow capped mountain peaks and air cold. But all of the traveling was worth it. There are many other lakes in the valley and it is said that Dudipatsar is more beautiful than lake saiful maluk. Although both lakes are beautiful in their own aspect.

The park near it has snow leopards, lynx, marmot, black bear and more. This wildlife and the wetlands are very important for the ecosystem there, and definitely a unique experience.you will definitely want to visit this heaven again.

Karimabad:

Karimabad is the capital of the amazing Hunza district. It is said to be the top 5 tourist attraction in Pakistan and I agree. It’s beautiful a vibrant.

You can go by bus that drops outside the city to protect it from pollution. One plus point is hotels are easily available. After checking into your hotel, you can set out to tour this magnificent city. Along the way, you will pass by many houses that are thousands of years old. If you are a dreamer like me you will want to touch and feel everything, soak in the history and beauty.

The main valley is surrounded by mountains and divided into levels. The valley named after Prince Karim Aga Khan is home to mountains like Rakaposhi (7788 m) and Ghenta peak (7090 m).

While roaming and looking at shops you can eat a number of apricot delicacies that are a staple in the region. All year round you can see a lot of tourists there especially in summer.

The valley in front of me was lush and alive with apricot, walnut and apple trees. The air filled with the smell of fresh fruit that will make you feel welcome. It is a beautiful mix of nature, tradition, and civilization. Fit for a prince indeed.

Khata Lake:

Chitta Katha Lake is located in Shounter valley, Azad Kashmir administered by Pakistan. It is located at the elevation of 13,500 feet (4100 m).

From Islamabad to Muzaffarabad it will take 3 and a half hour on personal transport. Then from Muzaffarabad to Kel, it takes 11 hours on Bus, and about 9 hours on your own vehicle. Then you can travel from Kel to Chitta Katha Domel and Chitta Katha Lake which is about 7-8 hours away.

It is a beautiful area, high up in the mountains. With a lake that has so many colors that you will get lost in its beauty. It lies between snowcapped mountains reaching for the sky. The road leading to Khata Lake maybe tough but it is also an adventure to brag about.

There is a small hotel at Kel, Ajk Tourism Resort Kel , you can stay and plan accordingly.

What are you waiting for, start your adventure.
