THE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE TEAM

OVERVIEW

Starting from Islamabad by road, this jeep safari covers four distinct places with different cultures and civilizations. The journey begins from Islamabad with the first stop at Taxila, just an hour’s drive. With its history traces back to  Gandhara civilization, Texila has been the ancient meeting point of traders from China and the West. This is one of the famous spots with Archaeological sites and stupas surrounded by Taxila museums.  The way further leads to the historically rich and most beautiful Swat Valley, preached at an elevation of 975m south of Gilgit and north of Peshawar across the highest Malakand pass in the Hindu Kush range. The place is also called Udayana, or the garden of the ancient Hindu epic, the name given to this unsurpassed beauty. It is here that Alexander the great encountered opposing armies before marching down.

The excavated archaeological sites here range from prehistoric caves through Aryan graveyards to Buddhist monasteries, of which there were once 1,400 in the valley. The land of Swat is further divided into upper and lower Swat. Lower Swat is wide with wheat and lucerne fields on either side of the river surrounded by fruit orchards while upper Swat, with a narrow river running through pine forests, is preached on green slopes with mud-plastered stone houses, tiny shops, and water-powered flour mills. The land offers some of the best walking in Pakistan as well as excellent fishing and climbing sites besides safaris.
The journey then leads you to Chitral via the famous Lowari top, known as “Jewel of the Hindu Kush” adorned with the majestic Trichmir peak (7708m). Chitral lies in the northwestern corner of Pakistan at an elevation of 1518m.  The beauty of Chitral is its Kafir Kalash valleys (Rambur, Brir, and Bamburet) situated about 35km west of Chitral offer a unique civilization. The lifestyle of people there is dramatically different from that of the rest of the Chitral valley. Their rituals and their inhabitants, cluster of wooden made old houses, and their outfit is totally different and worth seeing.
Now come to the third and most exquisite culture of the Northern Areas, with its wonderful sites and viewpoints, nestled in the lap of beautiful mountains. Starting from Gilgit, situated at an elevation of 1454m driving through the KKH with several beautiful picturesque viewpoints leads you to the resplended land of Hunza. Explore the beautiful tiny valleys of Hunza where pristine natural beauty awaits you. Its cultural forts and its remote places where you can see many things you haven’t come by so far.
