Are you planning a trip for ages but still cannot figure out where to go, and cherish life with your friends or family? Then no worries! After reading this blog, you will be fully prepared to decide where you are leaving for.
So, we will directly move to the beautiful places, and their famous spots present in Pakistan which you would love to visit. Here they are:
1- Hunza Valley (Passu Cones, Eagle`s Nest, Attabad Lake)
No matter you live in Pakistan or any other country all around the globe, you must have heard the name Hunza. It is a place which is well-known for its breath-taking sights. Let us now head towards the most remarkable sights of Hunza:
The Passu Cones is a characteristic masterpiece, and perhaps the most recognized scenery in Pakistan. In spite of the fact that staying for the time being in Passu town is not, at this point permitted, the cones are noticeable from far away, beginning from the town of Gulmit. The most famous perspective on the cones is from the Karakoram Highway, about an hour's drive from Gilgit City.
Need to see perhaps the most epic nightfalls in the Hunza Valley? Head to Eagle's Nest around a brilliant hour! The name comes from an upscale inn/café close by, yet you can drive up to the perspective without going there.
A lake that doesn't look genuine… Even when you're standing directly before it. Attabad was conceived out of misfortune when a gigantic avalanche happened in 2010. The progression of the Hunza River was impeded, and the now-celebrated lake was made afterward. Its splendid blue turquoise waters make it perhaps the most excellent spot in Pakistan.
2- Swat Valley (Kandol and Spindhor Lakes, Boyun Village, Ushu Forest)
In spite of the fact that it has had an unpleasant past, the present and eventual fate of Swat Valley are sparkling exceptionally brilliant. This shocking valley in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa area of Pakistan is a straight thing out of a fantasy.
Think radiant green fields and backwoods, beautiful towns, and waterways bragging conceals blue so clear and splendid you wouldn't have thought them genuine!
The genuine magnificence of Swat can be found around the town of Kalam, which fills in as a base to investigate the excellence of the valley. Here are 3 spots you can't miss in Swat Valley:
Kandol and Spindhor Lakes
These high lakes lie 2 hours from Kalam. Nowadays, Kandol Lake is open through jeep track and is a touch more marketed, though Spindhor must be reached on a 2-hour journey. Whichever you decide to visit, both are totally considered as a part of the most admirable places in Pakistan.
Boyun, otherwise called Green Top, is a short drive or sensible up-slope stroll from Kalam town. At the point when you at long last arrived at the zenith, you'll be remunerated with a display of quite possibly the most immense and wonderful towns I've at any point seen – alongside clearing perspectives on the valley beneath. Boyun is a simple road trip from Kalam.
This all-around safeguarded wood is brimming with deodar trees and is a breathtaking spot to get lost. The street that leads into the woodland proceeds to a few towns set along the Kalam River.
3- Phander Lake
Phander Lake, situated in Phander Village, is unrealistic. The greenish blue-hued lake sits quietly among light-green trees befitting a scene painting.
Regardless of being madly excellent, Phander Lake doesn't see anyplace as near the number of sightseers as the more well-known Attabad Lake does.
During the 4 days I spent in Phander loosening up lakeside, I didn't experience some other travelers. In the event that you do visit, I energetically suggest you stay at the Lake Inn, which is a short leave and charges 1,000 rupees each night.
There is additionally the costly (5,000 rupees) PTDC that ignores the lake, yet the accommodation and worth at Lake Inn rule prevalent.
4- Broghil Valley
Found far up north near Afghanistan's Wakhan Corridor, Broghil Valley was some time ago just available by means of trip or horseback. Nowadays, the once-covered up district can be reached by a deceptive jeep track – yet it still just gets a modest bunch of guests during the couple of months it's not frozen under loads of snow.
Presently, regardless of whether outsiders are permitted to visit Broghil is risky. (In case you're obstinate, ensure you check with the Deputy Commissioner's Office in Chitral prior to making the journey up there.) But Pakistanis – if it's not too much trouble, go see this magnificence! The valley is home to various high-height lakes, yaks, and rambling green fields, all set against a sensational rugged background that takes off over 13,000 feet.
Besides, a day's journey from Lashkargaz, the last town in Broghil, will lead you to Karambar Lake, one of the greatest on the planet!
5- Kalash Valleys
The Kalash Valleys, contained Bumboret, Rumbur, and Birir, are home to the Kalash public, a strict and ethnic minority in Pakistan with their own convictions, culture, and language. The valleys they live in are absolutely probably the most wonderful spots in Pakistan – for their normal quality, yet in addition for the excellence of the Kalash themselves.
The valley of Rumbur is especially dazzling. Here, kilometers of the dusty streets and mountains thunder close by the Kalash River. The Kalash individuals live in wooden homes that stick to the high slopes, and the ladies are especially renowned for their brilliantly shaded customary dress and headwear that varies from whatever else one can discover in Pakistan.
Being just 2.5 hours from Chitral City, it's exceptionally simple to make it out to one of the valleys nowadays. In the event that you do choose to go to Rumbur, require a day to travel right into the valley. The last settlement of Rumbur, Sheikhandeh, is a previous Nuristani town whose occupants moved across the line to Pakistan two or three hundred years prior.
6- Shah Jahan Mosque
Thought all the Mughal relics were in Punjab? Reconsider! The Shah Jahan Mosque – otherwise called the Jamia Masjid – is situated in Thatta, a town in Pakistan's Sindh territory. It's generally known for having the most intricate showcase of tile work taking all things together of South Asia. Blue and sandstone tones enhance the inside of the mosque and make certain to wow all who visit.
The mosque was authorized by Shah Jahan when he looked for shelter in Thatta back in 1647 and by one way or another remaining part fit as a fiddle today. Despite the fact that Sindh may appear to be a long way from the mountains, the impeccable creativity present here makes it quite possibly the most delightful vacationer place in Pakistan.
7- Khunjerab Pass
This high-mountain pass isn't for weak-willed. At almost 4,600 meters (15,397 feet), this mainstream vacation spot interfaces Pakistan with China to frame the most noteworthy cleared boundary-crossing on the planet.
Numerous individuals dare to the line to take photographs at the authority door, which is encircled by madly tall pinnacles and green fields. Concerning transport, it's ideal to go here in your own vehicle as transport tickets can get expensive. For audacious explorers, bumming a ride is additionally an alternative, for what it's worth on a significant part of the Karakoram Highway.
8- Fairy Meadows
Despite the fact that it has become somewhat touristy (and expensive), Fairy Meadows is no uncertainty a shocker. The knolls offer a staggering perspective on Nanga Parbat, the world's ninth most elevated mountain top.
Arriving at Fairy Meadows is somewhat of a test. The excursion begins with a jeep ride across perhaps the riskiest streets on the planet and comes full circle with a 5-kilometer journey. It's feasible to lease a camping area, or you can carry your own hardware to appreciate an evening or two luxuriating in one of Pakistan's most epic perspectives.
At present, the cost for a jeep into the glades is around 8,000 rupees, and strolling the street is precluded. Fortunate it's feasible to part the expense with different explorers.
9- Rakaposhi Base camp
For each one of those journeying aficionados out there – this present one's for you! The Rakaposhi Base Camp Trek is possible in one day, in any event, for fledglings, and offers some really crazy perspectives on Rakaposhi, a 7,800-foot top!
There are not many approaches to get as very close with Pakistan's monsters as this. The trip begins from the town of Minapin, where it should take those with a fair wellness level around 4 to 5 hours to arrive at the top.
While it is feasible to camp, the plunge is a lot speedier, making the whole excursion there and back a conceivable one-day issue. Because of the outrageous climate, it's simply conceivable to do the trip between May and October.
10- Margala Hills
Islamabad may be a glamorous 'new' city, yet did you realize it also has a huge swath of slopes ideal for climbing? The Margala Hills are fanned out over more than 12,000 hectares and contain different climbing and running paths.
Rising to the different pinnacles of the reach flaunt Islamabad in manners you probably won't have known were conceivable. There are not many spots in Pakistan that remain so near the city yet so profoundly associated with nature.
11- Naltar Valley
Naltar Valley is around 54 kilometers (34 miles) from Gilgit City in Pakistan's Gilgit-Baltistan locale. The famous vacation spot is known for its sensational timberlands, an assortment of completely clear lakes, and in the colder time of year, skiing offices.
In spite of the fact that numerous travelers just come for the inclines, I figure the genuine wizardry of Naltar must be seen in the late spring months when the lakes thaw and the timberlands can be best delighted in.
This supernatural valley is just available through Jeep, yet an open vehicle exists from Gilgit. There are various lodgings and guesthouses to oblige vacationers in the valley's two towns. To evade top traveler season, avoid visiting during the period of May and take a stab at coming in fall all things considered. You may be sufficiently fortunate to get some epic foliage towards the finish of October.
12- Deosai Plains National Park
Deosai is regularly alluded to as the top of the world. Also, it somewhat is. At 4,117 meters (13,497 feet), the gigantic level is the second-most elevated on earth and is just truly open during summer.
Rambling emerald-green glades, snow-covered pinnacles, and shimmering blue lakes welcome guests who make the excursion to this lovely spot. The Himalayan Brown Bear calls Deosai it's home and has been spotted by numerous a guest – look out for them in case you're enjoying the great outdoors!
The recreation center charges an extra charge of 1,000 rupees for outsiders and 40 rupees for Pakistanis.

Make proper acquaintance with one more of the most wonderful spots in Pakistan – this time a sixteenth-century post that is perceived as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Rohtas Fort is situated close to Jhelum in Punjab, which is around 4 hours from Lahore and 2 hours from Islamabad.
The spot is one of the biggest in the Subcontinent and has stayed in amazing condition notwithstanding its age. Hours can be spent meandering around the monstrous construction, a lovely relic that nearly appears to ship guests back on schedule.
It's not difficult to get lost among the dividers and entryways for a whole day. Remember that the stronghold charges an extra charge of 500 rupees for outsiders and 20 rupees for Pakistanis.
14- Katpana Desert
Wonderful spots in Pakistan genuinely cover each scene comprehensible… Including the Katpana Cold Desert. Despite the fact that it has every one of the makings of a 'warm' desert, what makes the Katpana stand apart is its height. It does, indeed, become shrouded with snow in the colder time of year.
Supposed to be the most noteworthy virus desert on the planet, sand ridges at this height look genuinely one of a kind. Not many nations can make a case for such an extraordinariness. Explorers can arrive at the Katpana Desert effectively from Skardu, as it's just around 30 minutes away. Try not to depend on there being the public vehicle, however.
15- Chapursan Valley
Like Broghil, Chapursan Valley also borders Afghanistan's Wakhan, however, is arranged more toward the east. This staggering assortment of towns and vistas sees just a modest bunch of vacationers and is perhaps the most far-off place you can visit in Hunza.
Chapursan is home to the Wakhi public, an ethnic gathering who speak Wakhi and have a place with the Ismaili faction of Islam. With regal blue skies, enormous mountain tops, rambling lakes, and practically no commercialization, Chapursan Valley is as delightful a spot in Pakistan!
To arrive at it, you'll first have to go to the town of Sost that sits close to the Pakistan-China border. On the off chance that you have your own vehicle, you're good to go to head on up from that point. If not, shared jeeps leave from Sost every morning around 6am.
While in the valley, don't miss the Baba Ghundi Shrine, a supernatural Sufi holy place committed to a holy person who as far as anyone knows held otherworldly powers.
Here you are, all prepared to plan your time. Now without wasting any further time, pack your bags, and, move!
