YPT has led tours to Pakistan since 2016, and at present we run 4 tours per year there.
Generally speaking we don’t advertise our itineraries to Pakistan (or Afghanistan), and they are only open to return Pioneers – people who have been on one of our tours before. You can get details of the itinerary and prices by getting in touch!
The one exception is the Karakoram Highway Tour from Lahore in Pakistan to Kashgar in China, a tour along one of the most iconic roads in a truly beautiful part of the world, and here’s why you should go!
But Pakistan tours will generally take in the following sites:
- Tour of the sites of Islamabad
- The Greco-Buddhist remains at Taxila
- The Rohtas Fort UNESCO site
- The Badshahi Mosque, (in)famous alleyway bone-setters and street dentists, a truck-painting yard, the Pakistani-Indian border zone and flag ceremony, and a Sufi Mystics night in Lahore
- Khewra Salt Mines and Ketas Raj Hindu Temple
Trips to Pakistan do create dangers all of their own and whilst we want you to have as much freedom as possible we must state that the tour leader has the final word with regards to changes in the itinerary for safety reasons. Whilst the route we have chosen passes through areas which we consider to be stable things can change and we may have to alter the route or cancel sections of the trip at short notice.
Saying that, Pakistan is an awesome travel destination that is often misunderstood, here’s YPT’s guide to 5 Misconceptions about Pakistan.
