Pakistan Tourism Pavilion representing all federating units of Pakistan was inaugurated at the World Travel Market (WTM) at ExCel London today.

High Commissioner Mohammad Nafees Zakaria along with Governor Gilgit-Baltistan Raja Jalal Hussain Maqpoon, Senior Minister KP Atif Khan, Minister Tourism Gilgit-Baltistan Fida Khan, Minister Works Gilgit-Baltistan Dr Muhammad Iqbal and Minister Tourism AJK Mushtaq Minhas inaugurated the #PakistanTourismPavilion. The WTM venue was thronged by thousands of potential #tourists and #tour operators.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony, the High Commissioner said #Pakistan is blessed with tourism attractions for people from every walk of life and has the most beautiful and serene places on earth. That’s why, he said, Pakistan is witnessing exponential rise in tourism. Be it religious tourism, eco-tourism, adventure tourism, #sports tourism, mountaineering, or trekking, Pakistan offers abundant opportunities for the tourists, he added. Mr Zakaria said the land of Pakistan is a cradle of ancient #civilizations and has been a great attraction for the #historians, #researchers and travel #writers for #centuries.

The High Commissioner appreciated the organizers of the Pavilion and said that would help our tourism marketing in reaching further and deeper, through social networks, B2B meetings, partnerships and media. He said showcasing Pakistan’s tourism opportunities at the international travel shows like WTM would attract more tourists to Pakistan.

The visiting Governor and Ministers also interacted with media as well as foreign tourists who showed up at the Pakistan Pavilion and briefed them about tourism potential of Pakistan. They hoped that by participating in the WTM, the tourism officials and tour operators of Pakistan would get an insight into the global travel industry to harness endless opportunities in tourism sector of the country.

Embellished with the colours of Gilgit-Baltistan, Balochistan, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, Azad Jammu & Kashmir and Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC), the Pakistan Pavilion attracted a large number of travel enthusiasts, representatives of international travel companies, media and bloggers.

Michael Palin’s Himalaya: Journey of a Lifetime 17/12/2021

Michael Palin’s Himalaya: Journey of a Lifetime

If you missed last nights amazing episode of Michael Palin's Himalaya: Journey of a Lifetime on BBC Two, you can catch it until Monday 20 December 9.30pm on BBC iPlayer-https://bbc.in/3p17tl8
This special episode sees Michael revisit his fifth travel series. For Michael, this epic journey across the world’s highest mountain range is the fulfilment of boyhood dreams inspired by the 1953 ascent of Everest by Hillary and Tensing. Beginning in the famous Pass, he travels through and India and ascends into Nepal and Tibet to reach Everest base camp itself, before venturing into the mountain kingdom of Bhutan.
But Michael’s journey isn’t all about scaling peaks – it’s also about finding out what life is like for the people who live in some of the harshest environments on Earth. He is curious to see countries that were cut off by the mountains for centuries and that have developed their own distinct cultures and ways of survival, to discover the different ways that religion influences society here, and to meet the hardy inhabitants of the mountains.
Along the way, Michael sees Pakistan’s historically volatile North West Frontier region and narrowly avoids a bull during a bull-racing festival. Crossing the border into India, he visits the Sikh city of Amritsar and the Golden Temple, where he learns about Sikhism and eats with the thousands of pilgrims who come there. And in Dharamshala, he learns about Buddhism and meets the Dalai Lama – who turns out to be a Palin fan.
Moving ever upwards into the mountains, Michael suffers from altitude sickness, and at one point thinks he might have to give up. But he recovers and is rewarded with stunning views of the Annapurna range. Eventually, he reaches Everest base camp, where he reflects on the achievement of walking in the footsteps not only of Hillary but of the earlier British explorers Mallory and Irvine, who were childhood heroes of his.
Being curious to find out how people live up at high altitude, he spends time with a Nepalese yak-herder and his family, making a real connection despite not speaking their language. In Nagaland, he has a chat with an elderly headhunter, who turns out to be much friendlier than he looks. Finally, Michael journeys through the isolated and magical nation of Bhutan, before descending to sea-level in Bangladesh.

Great Book ! THE KARAKORAM - ICE MOUNTAINS OF PAKISTAN - Colin Prior

The ice mountains of the are among the world's greatest natural treasures. At 8611 metres (28,251 ft), K2 is the second tallest mountain on Earth. There are three other mountains in the range that top 8000 metres (26,247 ft) - Gasherbrum I, Broad Peak and Gasherbrum II - and more than 60 peaks above 7000 metres (22,966 ft). Extending in a south-easterly direction from the north-eastern tip of Afghanistan and spanning the borders of Pakistan, India and China, the Karakoram is part of a complex of ranges in Central Asia that includes the Hindu Kush to the west and the Himalayas to the south-east. These mountains, however, are distinctive. This is the most glaciated region on the planet outside the Arctic and Antarctic. But while most of the world's great peaks are almost blanketed in snow and ice, the Karakoram is an exception: the mountains are so vertical that they rapidly shed snow, leaving their bold, jagged outlines of black granite glistening in the sun. The name of the range comes from the Turkic term for 'black rock' or 'black gravel'.
The well-known landscape photographer Colin Prior was initially inspired to visit the Karakoram in his early twenties: in his local library he picked up the book In the Throne Room of the Mountain Gods (1977) by the American climber and photographer Galen Rowell, and was instantly captivated by images of the sharp, fractured peaks and vast glaciers. His first trip to the Karakoram came in the mid-1990s, and he has been passionate about these mountains ever since. Prior's new book is the result of six expeditions he has made to the Gilgit-Baltistan region of north-east Pakistan over the last six years. Because the region is so remote, there are no established base camps, and each expedition requires careful planning and miles of trekking with a large team of guides, porters and ponies to carry the equipment and provisions. There are regular rock falls and perilous snow-covered crevasses to contend with. The reward for Prior is what he calls the ultimate mountain landscape: 'The scenery is graphic, with towers, minarets and cathedrals of rock.' This beautifully produced volume showcases the breathtaking beauty of the Karakoram in some 130 duotone and colour photographs. The images are largely arranged to follow Prior's progress up the glaciers, and are accompanied by well-chosen quotations from accounts of historical expeditions to the region. A selection of 'making of' images at the end of the book highlights the challenges of documenting the most exceptional mountain range in the world.

Why Pakistan should be your pick for a post-lockdown adventure

Under a new tourism drive, Pakistan is finally ready to take its place as one of the world's premier destinations.

*The Telegraph (London, UK)
_January 5, 2021_
Peter Watson
It is autumn of 2019 and the world knows nothing of Covid-19 or R numbers. I’m stood at Concordia camp in the Karakoram mountains of Pakistan. Tomorrow, I will complete the final leg of a two-week trek to K2 base camp at the foot of Earth’s second-highest mountain.
Concordia is located at the confluence of the Baltoro and Godwin-Austen glaciers at around 4,600m (15,091ft) – only slightly lower than the summit of Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s highest peak. The scene makes the Alps look distinctly Lilliputian, delivering a sense of scale and perspective that can only be found in Asia's great ranges. Indeed, the enormous rocky amphitheatre surrounding Concordia contains the planet’s densest cluster of sky-scraping summits, including four of the 14 'eight-thousanders' – the world’s only peaks above 8,000m (26,000ft).
As I turn to my left and gaze along the immense Godwin-Austen Glacier, K2 soars in splendid isolation above the neighbouring moraine, its towering bulk utterly overwhelming. Pakistan's ‘Savage Mountain’ may be second in stature to Nepal's Everest, but the mountain has poise and symmetry that, in my mind, makes it the most impressive of all of Earth's great peaks. But, while Nepal attracts over a million annual visitors to its trails, Pakistan’s trekking industry has stagnated since 9/11. However, that may all be about to change.
Following his 2018 election victory, Imran Khan highlighted tourism and national security as main objectives in his first 100 days agenda. Initiatives have included increasing availability of tourist visas, developing an online e-visa system, receiving the Royal Family for a state visit and restarting direct flights to Islamabad. The drive has already seen a moderate increase in visitors, particularly adventurers.
Climbers and trekkers are venturing to some of its most remote regions, among them K2. At 8,611m (28,251ft), it is the only 8,000m peak unclimbed in winter. With a throng of foreign mountaineers currently assembled at base camp, preparing for an attempt on its slopes, the mountain is witnessing its busiest ever winter climbing season. Under previous regulations, this number of climbing permits were unavailable. Furthermore, K2 expeditions have been aided by an extension of the road from Skardu, the gateway city to the Karakoram. The extension cuts days of porterage off the backbreaking journey to base camp.
It’s not only adventurers taking advantage of Khan’s ambition. In 2021, Pakistan will host the England cricket team for the first time in 16 years. The landmark tour is down to Wasim Khan, the British chief executive of the Pakistan Cricket Board, who has fought hard to facilitate the return of international cricket to Pakistan. Security concerns have plagued Pakistani cricket since 9/11, coming to a head with the 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team. As a consequence, Test cricket was not played in the country between 2009 and 2019 with Pakistan playing their “home” matches in the UAE.
The hope is that cricket fans will follow England to Pakistan and, ideally, stick around to soak in the country’s magnificent scenery. The best views are, of course, to be found in the mountains, which is where I headed before the pandemic hit to join a trekking party to K2.
I won’t lie, life on the trail is challenging. Forget the prayer-flag-adorned teahouses, monasteries and souvenir shops of Nepal, the Karakoram is real wilderness. Anyone who opts for the K2 base camp trek will be camping for several nights on the freezing Baltoro Glacier. Comforts are few and far between and Pakistan’s trekking industry lacks the infrastructure of Nepal.
However, there is so much more to trekking in Pakistan than K2 base camp. With endless soaring summits, panoramic mountain passes and idyllic meadows, Pakistan has tracts of outstanding hiking options to rival its Himalayan neighbours. There are more comfortable hut-to-hut routes available as well as treks with considerably more accommodating campsites than the Baltoro Glacier, as well as myriad day hiking options.
Pakistan may be on the cusp of a tourism boom but the pandemic has arrested Khan's plans. If you’re planning a trekking holiday in 2021, consider forgoing the well-worn paths of the Alps or Annapurna and instead, head for the magnificent Karakoram with its embarrassment of lofty peaks and empty trails. The mountains are calling and Pakistan is finally ready to take its place as one of the world's premier trekking destinations.
