Hidden naturally beautiful places of Pakistan
Parishing Valley is located in the Astore district of GilgitBaltistan. This is one of the remotest places in the country and receives only a few visitors every year. The valley is one of the most beautiful places on Earth with snow-capped peaks, lakes, river streams, wildlife, unique flora and fauna. The local people are also hospitable and welcoming of all kinds of people, so there is a lot to experience at this place.
Burgeh-La Pass or Top is a high altitude mountain pass in Skardu district of GilgitBaltistan. Though this pass has no special purpose now, it is one of the fewest spots in Pakistan where one can see all 5 8000 metres peaks in Pakistan. On a clear day, you can view K2, Gasherbrums 1 and 2, Broad Peak, and Nanga Parbat from the top. You can also view other 7000 metres high peaks from this very spot in the surrounding areas. There are many lakes that are still unexplored and can be seen from the top. The nearest trail can be accessed from Sadpara Village and Deosai Top.
Buji-KohSapat Beach is located on the coast of Balochistan province and can be easily accessed from Karachi. This beach is undeniably beautiful and offers an amazing view of the Arabian Sea. If you are lucky, you can observe dolphin movement in the shallow waters as well as an amazing starry night sky. There are no natural resources in the area due to its remoteness, so it is wise to carry everything with you. You also need to travel in a 4wd vehicle to reach there, as a 10-kilometre strip of desert needs to be traversed.
Khamosh Waterfall is the highest waterfall in Pakistan. Located in Kharmang district of GilgitBaltistan, this waterfall is called Khamosh, meaning soundless. The flow of water is quite high and yet the sound is lower than you can ever expect. The beauty is also cannot be described with words, so you need to see it to believe it. The water of this waterfall is flowing directly into the River Indus, and its source is melting snow and glaciers on the mountains. So you can expect it to be cold.
Astola Island is located in the Arabian Sea, 25 kilometres away from the shores of the fishing port of Pasni in Baluchistan. This island is uninhabited, and only a few tours can take you there. It is the largest island of Pakistan and is now a marine protected area since 2017. During the fishing season, Astola is used as a base by local fishermen. There is a lighthouse made to guide the passing ships. There are almost no resources on this island, so you need to carry your own when visiting it.
Lakes in Deosai Plains
Deosai is a mysterious plateau between Astore, Skardu, and Kharmang Districts in GilgitBaltistan province. It is a summer gateway and a natural pass between Astore and Skardu. Today, many people visit this amazing piece of land and enjoy an amazing time. However, what people don’t know is that there are more than 10 lakes in this enchanted land. Discover them and explore this second highest plateau on Earth.
Gultari is a meadow near Astore Valley. Due to its closeness with the de facto border with India, Line of Control, this place cannot be visited without the permit of Pakistan Army. You really need to pull some strings to get that permit, but once you do and visit the place, you will understand that any hard work to get here is completely worth it. The flowing streams, flowers all around, unique fauna, and beautiful lakes in the vicinity makes Gultari a must-visit place for everyone.
