A UK-based adventure travel project—British Backpacker Society, followed by many people online, has stated Pakistan among the world’s leading adventure travel location.
The society declared its result after counting the top twenty adventurous travelling nations throughout the proceeding year and asked the travellers to mark the destination on their bucket lists.
Two of the members of the British Backpacker Society—Samuel Joynson and Adam Sloper while conversing with a local news channel said that the team of the society has visited more than a hundred countries throughout the world and they called Pakistan a “clear winner”.
In the result announcement of the British Backpacker Society, they described Pakistan—ranking on top as among the friendliest nations on earth with sceneries including mountains beyond anybody’s imagination. The article specifically persuaded the readers and travellers to travel on the Karakoram Highway and asked them to take the route from the capital—Islamabad to the Pak-China border on the Khunjerab Pass. It declared the road route as the “world’s greatest road-trip”.
Samuel Joynson—twenty-six years of age, and Adam Sloper—twenty-five years belonging to Southern England visited Pakistan back in the summers of 2016, crossing at Wagah, the India-Pakistan border before spending some days in Lahore, Islamabad and Rawalpindi.
From the capital city, they travelled via Kaghan valley to Naran, before travelling to Babusar Top to Gilgit. They ended their journey at Hunza Valley—there they walked on top of the Hon Pass—four thousand two hundred and fifty-seven meters long from Karimabad.
Samuel commented that the adventure travel is best when it changes the viewpoint and with Pakistan, he has experienced a change in his perceptions which has never happened to him before.
He added that the travel trip in Pakistan keeps surprising, whether it would be the idle gazing at the mountain peaks or dining in the scrumptious meals at the back-street hotels of Rawalpindi, or making new friends on long-distance bus trips, he said that the country offers a new experience at every corner.
He also said that he has no doubt that once the stories relating Pakistan’s wonders would spread it would attract international tourism and many adventurous travellers. He wished the Pakistan tourism industry and expressed that he hopes that the British Backpacker Society could help Pakistan in this enterprise in any possible way.
Adam Sloper said that the only concern for the tourists in Pakistan would be the number of selfies they would be asked to pose in, so the tourists better be prepared to keep their smiles intact always for the camera—to enjoy the best hospitality on earth.
The British Backpacker Society’s top twenty ranked adventure travel countries are:
- Bosnia & Herzegovina
- The Democratic Republic of Congo
The British Backpacker Society would be revisiting Pakistan in 2018 for ravelling to Skardu and the base camp of K2. The society team hopes that they would be able to obtain the tourist visa to Pakistan and the permit to visit Gilgit-Baltistan.
