Pakistan is a land of varied and unique landscape. While high mountains ranages dominate its North, series of low mountain ranges of Suleman, Pub, Kirthar and Makran extend from North to Southwest and South in a bone like manner. These low ranges dominate the plains and deserts to East and warm and captivating beaches of the Arabian sea to the South. It is, however, Northern Areas of Pakistan which is endowed with most geographical features in the world.
