Pakistan sunindex: the best time to travel to Pakistan
Pakistan is located in the southeastern part of Asia and borders India, Afghanistan, Iran and China. Despite its situation on the Arabian Sea hardly any sun, sea or beach tourists visit the country. The tourists that do travel here mainly visit the beautiful interior with its rugged high mountains. In the Kashmir province the peaks of this high mountain region are situated at an altitude above 8,000 meters. The highest peak is Mount K2 with an altitude of 8,611 meters. Daily life in Pakistan is strongly influenced by Islam, please respect this. Because there are hardly any tourist attractions Pakistan is not very interesting as a travel destination. Over the past few years there have been several attacks in the country that mainly had western targets.
