Trekking in Pakistan is popular destination for the Traveler. The Karakorum and Hindukush mountains of northern Pakistan have drawn mountaineers and expeditions since their discovery by European explorers in the late 19th century. Most trekkers visit this region for the spectacular mountain scenery but many return for the people they meet there. Warmth, generosity and hospitality are what characterizes the diverse and colorful people you will meet in the mountains of northern Pakistan.. Luxuries as Teahouses or other infrastructure are nonexistent and a lot of the treks are on glaciers which makes the going tough at times.
