PAKISTAN

From the highest mountains in the world to the arid desert

Pakistan is a large country with many contrasts. Its landscape is the result of the abrupt collision between two tectonic plates, the Indo-Australian and the Eurasian; This gives rise to three main geographical regions: the northern and western mountains, with the Himalayas, the Karakorum and the Hindu Kush, the western area formed by arid Baluchistan, a semi-desert plateau crossed by mountain ranges that in some places exceed 3,000 meters in height, high up and south, and finally the rich plains of Punjab and the dry deserts of Sindh.

Ethnic and cultural mixture

A multitude of cultures from various ethnic groups converge in the country, each one with ancestral cultures and different traditions, but with the same hospitality towards the traveler.
