Hunza Valley

Reviewed By Martin J - London, United Kingdom

This is truly hidden paradise! when i book tour with the travel agent they said we will take you to heaven on earth which was nearly a joke to all of us but after reaching this amazing valley we realise that this is really heaven on earth! We spend few days in all Hunza valley which was not enough, we will come again in the near future to explore all the valley.

Badshahi Mosque

Reviewed By Nancy D - Los Angeles, California

The Mosque is stunning with a few remaining frescoes. Unfortunately people vandal this extraordinary place with scratching walls and a bit of graffiti. The Pakistani government has worked hard to bring the place to full glory. While there, several wedding contract signing ceremonies were happening. The men and women looked amazing in their finest. So many people wanted to take photos with us and also to have photos with us that we could take for our memories. There is a lot of wide open sunny space. Drink water. Wear a hat. Consider an umbrella. You’ll need it.

Faisal Mosque

Faisal Mosque is the mosque in Islamabad, Pakistan. Located on the foothills of Margalla Hills in Islamabad, the mosque features a contemporary design consisting of eight sides of concrete shell and is inspired by a Bedouin tent.

Reviewed By SalmanLondon - London

This is most impressive building in whole of Islamabad. Beautiful architecture and well worth the visit. We went there before sunset and enjoyed the views both in daylight and twilight.
I went there after 30 years and was a bit disappointed to see that the crescents on minarets and the central projection were very rusty and not as shining as they once used to be. The main prayer hall opens for the regular prayers. There is a nice souvenir shop near the stairs for magnets, etc.

Saif-ul-Muluk Lake

Reviewed By Ranger_ofthe_North - Abbottabad, Pakistan

In good old days, Saif ul Muluk was a nice place to visit and to stay for some time. Now, we have spoiled this gem and have made it into a local bazaar.
Views are still stunning, if one gets a view.... mass tourism, coupled with cabins &shops have spoiled the serenity and the mystique of the place

Deosai National Park

Reviewed By afshan m - Calgary, Canada

Called Ghbiarsa in the local language, this place is only accessible in the summer months. Camping, fishing, hiking and climbing are just a few activities that can make one stay here for weeks on end.

Tomb Shah Rukne Alam

Reviewed By MubasharBashir - Lahore

Associated with an famous ancient 'Sufi' having number of followers all over Pakistan. You have to walk a bit from parking to main building and surroundings. Nice historic architect surrounded by beautiful garden and structure having panoramic overview of this part of city. Nice place to visit while at Multan.

Baltit Fort

This palace/fortress is over seven centuries old.

Reviewed By Dirk W - Mermaid Beach, Australia

Historically important and very well preserved, Baltit Fort is a must to visit. It holds a commanding position overlooking the valley, which means there are terrific views and photo opportunities from there. We were taken around by a local guide, whose knowledge and English was excellent. It is a pleasant uphill walk from the Hunza Cafe, through some pretty shops that sell nice artifacts and precious stones.

Margalla Hills

Reviewed By Graham B - London, United Kingdom

There are a number of treks for the intrepid walker and they are rated for length and difficulty. I went of Trail 5 which I was told was the easiest. It started well but toward the end got steeper and stepper. I was exhausted by the end. Well worth doing but goodness knows what the more difficult trails are like.
