Re: it has to be

You are welcome to my beautiful country. This album and my other photos at SP is my humble effort to guide people through what we Pakistanis call, "Heaven on Earth" From the extreme lush greenery of our northern areas, through the bold serenity of the thar desert, to the stark presence of our mountainous terrain, Pakistan leaves you breathless through my albums. Thank you very much for looking at my photos and your valuable votes.
Best wishes from Pakistan! Afzal

Re: it has to be

Thank you very much. I personaly invite you to come, explore Pakistan with me, and I promise you a journey of lifetime to see Pakistan's most incredible places and friendly faces. Pakistan is a globe of attraction which need to be discovered. It has the most attractive parts, eye-catching landscapes, astounding dawn to spectacular dusk, striking seasons, stunning mountains & harmony of religions. Pakistan has five of the 14 highest mountain peaks in the world and there are tremendous opportunities for trekking, mountaineering and many other adventure sports.
Best regards from Pakistan, Afzal
