Pakistan’s exotic beauty is radiant. There are still thousand of spots which have escaped the world and should be found. I believe that Pakistan can be a great place for adventure travel and backpacking if the government spends some money on the advertising of our adventure tourism industry and try to pursue the adventurers to visit Pakistan.
