Pakistan remains a land of high adventure and nature. Trekking, mountaineering,
white water rafting, wild boar hunting, mountain and desert jeep safaris, camel
and yak safaris, trout fishing and bird watching are a few activities, which
entice the adventure and nature lovers to Pakistan.


Pakistan is endowed with a rich and
varied flora and fauna.
The high
Himalayas, the
Karakoram, and the Hindukush ranges with their alpine
meadows and permanent snow line, coniferous forests down the sub-mountain
scrub, the vast Indus plain merging into the great desert, the
coastline, and
wetlands, all offer a remarkably rich variety of vegetation and associated wildlife
including avifauna, both endemic and migratory. Ten of 18 mammalian orders are
represented in Pakistan with species ranging from the world’s smallest
surviving mammals, the Mediterranean Pigmy Shrew, to the largest mammal ever
known; the blue whale.
