These Pictures Will Prove That You Know Nothing About The Real Pakistan

Tripoto

It's a media trend to bring out the worst in people and places.

Such is the plight of Pakistan, our neighbour about whom we know so little about that these pictures blew my mind. Not because I wasn't expecting Pakistan to have heavenly places, but because even internet hasn't shown them the love they deserved.

A spectacle such as the Hiran Minar, is in the dark. The media (nationally and internationally) is obsessed with terrorism and everything sour, so I took this opportunity to feature Xeeshan's surreal and divine photography. After seeing these images you will realise you knew NOTHING about Pakistan (even if you knew a lot).

Beautiful pics undoubtedly ! But it hurts to see Ghijar, gilgit , nanga pahar, Hunza valley in pakistan. They are in PoK ! Had there been no intrusion in 1947, we could've at least visited these beautiful places without fear. Now, I'm not sure !

For any traveller, the place's beauty is a mixture of the place and the people. Otherwise its gonna be just a stunning picture of a dodgy place. - Pls don't get me wrong, I spoke my heart.

These are no doubt stunning pictures and awesome places in Pakistan. But what do you mean "Real Pakistan" that we know nothing about. one should not mix politics with Nature... In that case...we don't know anything about the real Antarctica..!!!

I cannot respect you more for this bold attempt. You bring out a real traveller's story with these Beautiful pictures of Pakistan. Yes! Travellers do not have barriers and they do not have disrespect for any caste, community or country. If we can go and enjoy in Spain then why can't we in Pakistan.

Oh my God, these are such beautiful photographs! These are, I guess the most Beautiful pictures of Pakistan anyone could present. You have chosen the best ones and presented them so nicely. Better that you have put no description again because the pure essence of the pictures would have lost in that case.
