The Ultimate Pakistan Tour

Travel to North and South Pakistan

Original World’s Ultimate Pakistan tour visits both North and South Pakistan, offering a comprehensive immersive experience of Pakistan.

We offer an option to join only North Pakistan: https://originalworld.com/grouptour/north-pakistan-tour/

Pakistan is the site of some of the earliest human settlements and home to an ancient civilization rivaling those of Egypt and Mesopotamia. It is also the crucible of three of the world’s major religions: Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism; all which have their roots in the subcontinent.

Explore the much renowned Hunza Valley enveloped in the grand Himalayas and the Karakoram mountain ranges in North Pakistan.

The villages are incredibly isolated and built into the cliff side. Some villages are more than 1,000 years old. Enjoy friendly interaction with various ethnic peoples we encounter in several villages. Soak up the spectacular scenery of surrounding mountains.

In South Pakistan visit several UNESCO World Heritage sites in Karachi, Islamabad and Peshawar as well as the Mohenjo Daro and Harappa in the ancient Indus Valley.

See the devotional dance of dervish at the Shia Shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar. The shrine is one of the most important in Pakistan, and attracts up to one million visitors annually. https://shrine-of-hazrat-lal-shahbaz-qalandar.business.site/
