Pakistan - one of the last adventure backpacking frontiers!
This is a country filled with awesomeness; with five of the world's fourteen highest peaks, ancient glaciers, roaring rivers, untapped white water rafting, stunning treks, some of the world's most friendly people, plenty of adventure and, of course, the ancient silk road leading all the way to China...
I travelled to Pakistan overland, from Iran, in February 2016 and spent five weeks backpacking this incredible country before heading to India and driving a multi-coloured tuk tuk across the subcontinent...
I quickly decided that I missed Pakistan and, in just one month's time, I will be returning for another couple of months of adventure backpacking, trekking and mountaineering in this incredible country.

As always, a huge thank you to all of you amazing travelers, adventurers, nomads and vagabonds for your continued support.
To all of my incredible Pakistani friends; Shukria
You have shown me a side of the world that, until recently, I did not know existed. Pakistani hospitality is the best in the world and this is a country which is insanely easy to hitchhike and couchsurf in.
If you are an adventure backpacker, go to Pakistan; this is the most incredible country I have ever visited in nine years of being on the road...
