Efforts made by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government to promote tourism in the country have proved to be beneficial as Pakistan has been listed as one of the top tourist destinations of 2020. One of the world’s best travel magazines, Conde Nast listed Pakistan in its list of tourist destinations of 2020.
The magazine was all praise for the country and said, “The adventure traveller’s must-visit goes from strength to strength,” while highlighting Pakistan’s scenic and mesmerizing tourist attractions. With its scenic views, picturesque mountains and stunning lakes, Pakistan has always been one with potential to boost its tourism.
The magazine further highlighted adventure tourism in the country and wrote, “Pakistan has more peaks taller than 22,965ft than China and Nepal combined, making it an almost magnetic spot for adventure travellers and intrepid hikers.” It went on to add, “Visitors can follow in Michael Palin’s steps while traversing the 12,250ft Shandur Pass, home to the world’s highest polo field, or meet with the Kalash people of the Hindu Kush, famed for their cowrie-shell headdresses and brighter-than-bright embroidery.”
Further, the magazine also went on to mention the recent visit of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, to Pakistan and the measures the government has been taking to further enhance tourism; including the relaxed visa restrictions.
