where is hunting point in Pakistan
The landscape of Pakistan ranges from lofty mountains in the north, the Karakoram and the Himalayas, through dissected plateaus to the rich alluvial plains of Punjab. Then follows desolate barrenness of Balochistan and the hot dry deserts of Sindh blending into miles and miles of golden beaches of Mekran coast. The country borders Iran on the West, India on the East, Afghanistan in the North-West, China in the North and the Arabian Sea in the South.
Nowhere in the world, there is such a great concentration of high mountains, peaks, glaciers, and passes except Pakistan. It features 5 out of the 14 summits that soar above 24000 feet on the face of the earth. 40 of the world’s 50 highest mountains occupy the northern part of the country, where three of the mightiest mountain systems meet: The Hindu Kush, the Karakorams and the Himalayas. This land of geographical splendors is also endowed with the rarest animals in creation, some of which are indigenous specifically to its spectacular mountains. Here live three different species of Markhor, four separate types of Urial, as well as two subspecies of Ibex, Marco Polo Argali and Blue Sheep. Markhor hunts can legally be done only in Pakistan, as it is the only country for which the CITES agency has legalized the importation of trophies into the EU states and US.
The region was a crossroads of historic trade routes, including the Silk Road, and was settled over thousands of years by many groups, it is often referred to as “a museum of races.” The people with typical costumes, folk dances, music and sports like polo and buzkashi provide the traveler with an unforgettable experience.
