Cycling on the Roof of Pakistan (Introduction)



I'm just a traveler on a bike. I'm not a cyclist & I don't want to become one either. Curiosity envelopes one’s ego and self esteem riding on bike to navigate and explore our beloved Pakistan by land. The series of blogs would take you to our journey on the rigid yet beautiful Karakorum Highway on bikes, Throughout our journey we rough it out, by living the ultimate dream of any adventure lover.

Our country, Pakistan has huge potential of tourism; friendly people of our country makes the area more beautiful and memorable. I just could feel the unqualified thrill and robust enthusiasm permeating from my inner soul that for every stopover I make I have to unfold many hidden natural geographical beauty of our land. The main advantage of ridding on a bicycle is one could get ample time to peruse and document ordinary as well as extraordinary landscape. The unceasing inner will to deliver and share the beauty of our beloved Pakistan is worth the reckoning in tourism assets.

Cycling along the countryside provides unlimited opportunities and familiarity with the local people and regional culture, tradition, history and diversified cuisine practices. Interacting with the local populace make one no stranger to their culture. There local folks provide voluntary kind acts of assistance which make countryside cycling  an adventure for a “perfect holiday”.
