I know that the first thing most people outside of Pakistan will think is either “why” or “it’s not safe” but I can assure everyone these are misconceptions of a beautiful country fuelled by years of negativity by the western press. Pakistan is a warm and welcoming country from everything I’ve seen in my own research. In fact, the only real danger I face is getting even more fat than I am now from local Pakistanis trying to force-feed me delicious treats day and night!
It’s going to be a wild ride … I hope you’ll follow along on YouTube 🙂
This video shares the concept and basic premise for 50 days of solo female travel I’m starting in a week. It’s not my detailed itinerary but a rough outline of the types of trips I’ll be taking, which regions I’m travelling to, and my current list of transportation and day trip partners.
Pakistan Travel & Tour Companies I Recommend

If you can manage, I will highly recommend you to travel to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (you can call it KPK). KPK’s capital Peshawar is a historic city and some historians put it as the oldest city of Pakistan. Many historic place to visit especially Museum which has one of the biggest collection of statues of Buddha. Than from Peshawar you can travel to Swat valley via road as well. There you can enjoy Malam Jabba Ski resort. Both Peshawar and Malam Jabba has Pearl Continental, so you can tick that 5 star hotel box.
