When to Visit

The best time to visit Pakistan largely depends on the region you plan on seeing. For hills of Murree and Galliat, the autumn season (September to November) offers a picturesque panorama of vibrant foliage. For cities like Lahore, Islamabad, and Karachi, the cooler months from November to March are ideal. To explore the mountainous north, including Hunza and Skardu, the summer months from May to October offer comfortable temperatures and clear skies, perfect for mountain trekking and sightseeing. However, if you are fascinated by snowfall then winter in these areas is also a magical experience. Remember, no matter when you go, the warm hospitality of the people of Pakistan is ceaselessly refreshing!
