Pakistan is THE holiday destination for 2020

Without any doubt, Pakistan is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful countries in the world. The scenic beauty coupled with the amazing hospitality of the local people makes it a perfect holiday destination for the people. And, guess what? We are NOT the only one who think like this.

 

Now, we all know for years that Pakistan as a holiday destination has LOTS to offer

Over the years, as locals we’ve appreciated the tall mountains, the unique beaches, the deserts, the forests, the city life, the culture and most of all the lovely people of this beautiful country. Slowly but surely, people from outside of Pakistan are also starting to wake up to this revelation as well.

Condé Nast Traveller a prestigious international publication ranked Pakistan the top holiday destination for 2020… IN THE WORLD

The criteria to choose the destination is based upon major events and trends around the world. The list introduces Pakistan by mentioning that the tourism industry of Pakistan has been negatively impacted by the horrific tales of terrorism and Taliban rule but ancient valleys, relaxed visa restrictions and exquisite landscapes make it a perfect destination for tourists.

The publication has highlighted a number of places that make Pakistan THE holiday destination that everyone in the world should visit for 2020

It starts off by focusing on how towering mountains in Pakistan are the perfect destination for mountaineers and hikers. The world famous Northern Areas are already a beloved tourist hotspot.

Of course, anyone traveling to the Shandur Polo Festival should also pay a visit to the local Hindukush tribe of Kailash people

If royalty like Kate and William can hang out with the locals and love their time, so can anyone else in the world.

The stunning beauty of the Karakoram range came under the focus too

Skláním se před prací své kamarádky, bývalé československé horolezkyně Diny Štěrbové. Společně s Víťou Dokoupilem založila v roce 2007 v himálajském Karakorumu Horskou vesnici Czech Hospital, která se se především specializuje na zlepšení kvality života místních dětí. Jejich záběr je ale mnohem širší, proto si zde dovolím ocitovat část z jejího vánočního poselství včetně přiložených fotografií. “V roce 2018 se nám podařilo v Baltistánu dokončit několik důležitých úkolů a my se chceme o radost z nich podělit i s Vámi : Po pěti perných letech jsme konečně předali internát pro školáky z hor do rukou vesnice Arandu. Opravili jsme také opěrnou zídku nemocnice, která se pod tíhou sněhu v roce 2017 částečně zhroutila a ohrozila stabilitu nemocnice. K našemu obrovskému překvapení náš přítel Dr.Niaz Ali, kterému jsme v roce 2012 zajistili stáž na oční klinice FN Brno,transplantoval v srpnu 2018 svých prvních 7 rohovek pacientům z hor. Již tradičně jsme zaznamenali, že ani v roce 2018 nezemřelo žádné dítě na zápal plic, ač jich v Arandu ročně stále onemocní v zimě desítky. Největší radost máme ale z toho, jak se od roku 2007 změnila situace v prevenci i faktické záchraně životů těhotných žen a jejich novorozenců díky systému, který jsme zavedli.” #czechhospital #karakorum #pakistan

Breathtakingly beautiful fairy meadows were mentioned as well

 

 Lahore’s ronak and Mughal-era architectural masterpieces in the city were a part of the reasons why Pakistan won the top spot in the list

Now, isn’t this exciting that the world is finally waking up to the reasons why we all love Pakistan despite all the myriad reasons that it gives us to crib and whine about.
