Lovely pics and cars. Are those Mahindra jeeps in the background?

Supposedly 5th best tourist destination in Pakistan. Heard about this gorgeous place before.
Funnily this location gets more snowfall than India (closest should be Himachal Pradesh). Absolutely mind blowing place and great captures to support it!

Pakistan has it's own Suzuki subsidiary. I don't think they import from Maruti Suzuki.

The Pakistan Suzuki website -

Pak Suzuki Motor Co. Ltd.

Wiki page -

Pak Suzuki Motors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


@Aamir - This is an awesome travelogue and a feast for the eyes. Many thanks for sharing!
If you have anything to share from the Gilgit/Baltistan region, please do so. Have heard of those places also being truly heavenly.

Mind blowing pictures. I liked the panoramas and the pictures of fresh snow.
Thanks for sharing them.

Honestly these are the first few photos of Pakistan (atleast for me) which show nature at its best. Top of the line photos and some are wall paper material
Do keep us posted with more of such destinations around Pakistan. Thoroughly enjoyed them

Is there ice & snow throughout the year at this place?

5 stars
PS:Those samosas look very tempting

Terrific pictures. The lovely mountain lake reminds me a little bit of the gorgeous Chandra Tal in the Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh, with the additional luxury of driving up to it.

@Aamir, Fabulous Place, Perfect Photography. Popping up of shops and temp stores seems to be an issue everywhere (which are mostly local people). The best we as tourist/traveller can do is not to pollute such pristine places and let other not to do that.
Watching this space for more such awesome places and photography.

Amazing Pics Aamir, keep it going we want to see more of Pakistan through your camera. BTW how much does a litre of Petrol and Diesel cost in your country? What does Saif ul Mulook mean?
