Prime Minister Imran Khan’s consistent efforts to bring back tourism to Pakistan and improve country’s image on a global level appears to be bearing fruit. Soon after British Airways decided to resume their operations in Pakistan that were initially halted due to security concerns, leading French travel agency is also coming back after 10 long years.
Known for adventure travel, Terres d’Aventure, has announced hiking and trekking packages to Pakistan for the mountain lovers as reported by Tour Mag, a French magazine.
As per the information revealed by the article, the operators have planned four trips to Pakistan’s Karakoram Range. The trips range from 17 to 24 days.
“A hike for 13 days along the Baltoro glacier to the famous Concordia site, then on to the base camp of K2, the most beautiful mountain in the world according to mountaineers, and then to Gondogoro La (5 585m), from where one can view an exceptional panorama of four eight-thousanders, K2, Broad Peak, Gasherbrum I and II “ – said the tour operator.
“With few steep passages, this trek offers gradual acclimatization and presents no major difficulties, offering exceptional views of 14 peaks over 7000 meters and vast glacial landscapes” – said Terres d’Aventure.
It will help improve Pakistan’s image globally and attract more tourism. International publications and travel agencies giving attention to Pakistan will for sure serve as a contributing factor to the revival of this industry in Pakistan. Previously social media influencers have also played an important and impactful role in clearing Pakistan’s previously plagued by ‘terrorist’ label.
