Regions in Pakistan
Pakistan-administered portion of the disputed Kashmir region
the largest and most remote province, its lack of infrastructure can make for rough traveling. Most foreign visitors here are just passing through from Iran, stopping briefly in Quetta
Federally Administered Tribal Areas
this area is mostly off-limits to foreigners, and is not under the control of Provicial Government instead affairs are federally administered through Governor of NWFP. Home to the legendary Khyber Pass, and the gun making city of Darra Adam Khel.
Gilgit-Baltistan (formerly known as the Northern Areas)
home to some of the world’s tallest mountains, it’s brimming with dramatically fantastic landscapes and can easily compete with Nepal for trekking opportunities
Islamabad & Rawalpindi
The capital area encompasses Islamabad, Rawalpindi, the Margalla Hills and the ancient ruins of Taxila
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (formerly known as the North-West Frontier Province)
Home of the rugged Pashtuns, for some it’s forbidding and mysterious… yet below the surface are some of the most hospitable people in the country
The most populous and agriculturally fertile region in the country and home to many historical shrines and mosques
Most visitors head for Karachi or the ancient ruins of Moenjodaro.
