Pakistan

Pakistan is often dismissed by travelers as 'too risky', thanks to news reports of a nuclear- powered, hard-line Islamic nation with a precarious law-and-order situation, constantly teetering on the brink of war with India over the disputed Kashmir region. Sure, there are a few wild and woolly regions (most of which are either off-limits or require an armed guard in visit), but this is only one layer of an incredibly multilayered country. If you can cast aside stereotypes, you're on the way to discovering that there's much more to Pakistan than the media clichés would have you believe.
