Pakistan: From Punjab to the Karakorum
by Anthon Jackson , 2009
On my way from India to China in the summer of 2009, I took my time passing through Pakistan. Almost four years later, the experience remains one of the most memorable of all my travels.
From the Sufi shrines of Multan and Bahawalpur to bustling Lahore and Rawalpindi in the plains of Punjab, I headed west to the lively old bazaars of Peshawar in the Northwest Frontier, then headed north along the Karakorum Highway, where the landscape became more rugged at every turn. All along the way I was deeply impressed with the complexity of Pakistan's many cultures, the depth of its history and the warmth of its people.
