Gilgit-Baltistan: The Forgotten Land

I probably shouldn’t say this but Pakistan certainly took me by surprise. I wasn’t expecting anything half as handsome as what it turned out to be. The Northern Areas of Pakistan, specifically Gilgit-Baltistan, are majestic.

Paradise is in Pakistan, and it’s fighting!

Though some of the inhabitants of the villages and small towns here still live in stone and mud houses, you don’t see any poor people in the streets of Gojal.
