Peshawar, The land of the gallant Pathans.Peshawar is a city in Pakistan 's North-West Frontier Province , near the eastern end of the Khyber Pass. Darra Adam Khel is Pakistan's most unusual tourist attraction.Darra is the gun factory of the Tribal Areas, located 40 kilometres south of Peshawar on the road to Kohat, a drive of about 40 minutes. Swat is the most historically interesting valley in Pakistan. It is also one of the most beautiful - certainly much greener and more fertile than the valleys further north because it lies within the monsoon belt.
Gilgit is the most important city in the Northern Area of Pakistan. Althought the town itself is not very big, nor extremely exciting, it is the best place to start exploring the northern region which has some of the best mountain scenery and so called Virgin Beauty of unexplored world, the world that is yet to be explored by the West. The Hunza Valley is one of the most beautiful regions in Pakistan. Coming from Giligit you first pass the majestic Rakaposhi mountain, one of those 8K giants of the Western Himalaya. Once in the valley, you see the capital city of Karimabad on the left bank, with its fort perched high on the top of the hill.
