More often than not, Pakistan is in the news for all the wrong reasons. Well, despite this, its rugged landscape is astonishingly beautiful, and almost entirely unspoilt. These were taken earlier this month on a trip to the Northern side of the country which is home to the mighty Himalayan mountain range (and also K2, the world’s second highest peak). I did a trek for the first one, which in the snow and on a steep incline, was gruelling. The pictures made it worth it though. C&C welcome and thanks for looking!
