Peshawar is the home of the proud race of the Pathans. The city with its bazaars reminds of the days of the caravan traders. One of the prime attractions of the tour is the visit to the Khyber Pass, the passage used by invaders and migrants from Central Asia to India.
The next point is the Swat Valley – the heartland of Gandhara period of the Buddhist history. Taking the Karakoram Highway alongside the mighty Indus River one can get to Gilgit and Hunza – the lost kingdom of Shangri-La described by James Hilton in his book ‘Lost Horizon’.
Hunza has seen much of history yet it offers tranquility and peace. People of Hunza are for their longevity and friendliness.
