From stunning villages to lofty mountain peaks to lush green meadows and picturesque waterfalls, northern areas of Pakistan are a must visit.

Tourism is gradually getting a boost and this season almost one million tourists visited northern areas of Pakistan.
Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC) has reported an increase of 25% in both local and foreign visitors to northern areas. The corporation believes that the measures taken by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has played an important role in improving law and order situation in the northern region. Around one million tourists visited northern areas of Pakistan mainly Naran, Gilgit, Skardu and Swat.
If taken the right measures, Pakistan can become the up and coming tourist destination as the country is blessed with magnificent topography, including the world’s highest mountain with the distinction of 5 peaks above 8000 meters and the largest glacier on the globe. The natural topography also includes waterfalls, valleys, turquoise blue lakes and various camping sites for nature enthusiasts.
Seemingly with such positive affirmative, PTDC is now planning to provide better facilities and hotel accommodation.
