The most famous pass in the world, the Khyber Pass, which is also part of the famous “Silk Road”, is 11 miles from Peshawar. It has been, throughout history, the most important gateway to the plains of the South Asian sub-continent both for migration and invasion. Starting from the foothills of the Suleiman Range at the Jamrud; 11 miles from Peshawar, it extends beyond the border of Pakistan at Torkham, 36 miles away and it gradually rises to an elevation of 3,497 feet above sea level. The pass is 1 mile at its widest and only 53 feet at its narrowest. The last point tourists are allowed to go, is to the Michni Checkpoint where journalists and VIPs get briefed. Just beyond Michni Checkpoint at a journey time of around half an hour is the Border at Torkham, which leads into Afghanistan.

Peshawar museum hosts one of the finest collection of Buddhist sculptures and artifacts from the Gandhara civilization. Fasting Buddha statue is the highlight of the museum. Besides that there are other artifacts too from the Mughal period and before that representing the history of sub-continent. The place is a must see for tourists especially those coming from far east region (South East Asian countries) that follow the Buddhist religion.

Sethi Street is found Near Ghor Khatri complex and it Goes from Cunningham clock Tower towards Gor Khatri complex and can be Accessed Via taxi or Tuck Tuck , Rickshaw would be Better as Road are clogged with traffic .
After Taking a turn from GT road , towards the clock Tower and Qissa Khani Monument on cinema Road , turn left from there towards the Clock Tower and towards the Gor Khatri and there is no Parking there so no need of car or if you have a Car park at a distance in some streets .
After Reaching the end of Gor Khatri you have reached the end of Sethi Street and this is street that is where you can see the Houses that is made Peshawar World famous and it is Travel back in Time .
Better walk it and enjoy it rather then in Transport , and enjoy the Journey Back in time .
