Pakistan | Darkest Side

Pakistan possess the repute of “Terrorist state” worldwide. Yes, we were! We were the biggest victims of terrorism but we were/are not terrorists. Pakistan has lost a lot due to terrorism. Oh yes, you have come here to know the darkest side of Pakistan,

Fortunately, there isn’t anymore.

Let me tell you what Pakistan has for you!

We are Terrorists – No more!

Pakistan has eradicated terrorism in the pace which no other nation had done before. We were the biggest victims of terrorism since 2015 with terrorism index reaching more than 2,000 attacks every year killing thousands of People. But, in the very next year this rate dropped by 45%. Forbes quoted

Terrorism is now at its lowest level since 2006, in part because of the army’s Zarb-e-Azb operation which has removed militant safe havens in the North Waziristan region.”

When we used to turn on our TV channels. All we get was xxx number of people died in this blast and yyy number of people died in another blast but things have changed a bit in 2019.

Because all we get on our TV channels now is Fawad Chaudhary roasting fellow parliamentarians and Sheikh Rasheed blasting on Shehbaz Sharif.

And we prefer this a lot! Like, a lot!

Lets just say thanks to this man – Gen. Raheel Shareef

But, we ain’t let it be forever. Follow @discoveringpk on Instagram to explore more.

I guess, that’s enough of advertising for today, Let’s move on!

As pure as Attabad Lake

Pakistan houses 108 mountains above 7,000m (23,000ft)

Out of these 108 mountains, 5 of them are in Top 14 highest individual Peaks. Pakistan is the only country in world where 3 mountain ranges meet together at one point. Hindukush, Himalayas and Karakoram range. K2 unsurprisingly is the highest mountain in Pakistan and 2nd highest in world with an elevation of 8,611m (28,251ft) but surprisingly is considered deadliest mountain and no one has ever summit K2 in winters. Out of every 4 summiteers, one dies; Yes, that deadly.

The Staggering K2

Heaven for Hunters

Pakistan is a heavenly place on Earth for hunters as we have variety of those species which are found no where else. From the remote heights of the Karakoram and Hindu-Kush Mountains to the arid desert of the Sindh, Pakistan offers the traveling hunter a variety of ecosystems, each with its own fauna and flora. Himalayan ibex, Markhor, Sindh ibex, Punjabi urial – where else on the world you have opportunity to hunt on these beasts?

A US hunter paid $110,000 to hunt Pakistan’s national animal Markhor in Gilgit-Baltistan.

Let’s wrap this up

Pakistan is so rich in nature that one blogpost is surely not enough at all to describe the mesmerizing beauty of it. In short, rich in culture, generous in people and scenic in nature.

A little disappointment for those who came here to see the darkest side of the Pakistan 🙁
