Pakistan is a country with beautiful landscapes to historical buildings, from pastures to great deserts, from snow-capped mountains to seas with reefs and aquatic life. If we talk about Peshawar it is famous for its history we can imagine the Great Alexander marching with his armies. Lahore, the land of gardens, how can we miss the great walled city with spectacular Moghal architecture, Karachi; the city of lights and commercial hub, the archeological sites of Taxila, Thakht Bai. The great civilizations of Gandhara and Mohenjo-Daro, how can we forget the beautiful valleys of Kashmir and breathtaking views of Northern Pakistan.

Day 1: Lahore
Lahore is Pakistan’s cultural capital and rightly so. It’s one of the region’s oldest metropolis, whose imperial history involves rule of the Hindus, Ghaznavids, Ghurids and Mughals. Later on, the Persians captured it from the Mughals only to lose it to the Sikhs who were eventually defeated by the British.
Day 2: A little more of Lahore and then fly off to Islamabad
Book a late evening or night flight to Islamabad and use the morning to stroll around the Walled City area to see the heart of Lahore right in front of you. Here you will see carts, stalls and shops located in narrow alleys within ancient gates selling all kinds of products and services from breakfast to cobbling. Bring some money as you may get tempted to buy many souvenirs. Also worth visiting is the beautiful tomb of Jahangir built just outside. If you are quick, you may have time left to visit the Pakistan-India border where you see displays of marching armies and nationalistic crowds on both sides cheering them on. Next, get ready to arrive in a quiet and peaceful Islamabad.
Day 3: Islamabad
Depending on when you arrive you may want to catch dinner at the incredible Monal restaurant, with the view of the entire city or head on to catch a good night’s sleep. When you wake up, pay a visit in the morning-noon hours at the Shah Faisal mosque and the Pakistan Monument for some Instagram-worthy pictures and then head towards Daman-e-Koh to explore the greenery of the city.
