What is it like to travel in PAKISTAN?


– Hey, everyone, it’s Mark
Wiens, and I just wrapped up a 16 day food and travel
trip, but more than a trip, it was an experience and a
journey through Pakistan. We began our journey in Lahore, which is an amazing city
of history and food, before continuing on
to Gujranwala, Chakwal, Islamabod, Peshawar,
and then after Peshawar, we continued to the North. The northern mountainous
region of Gilgit-Baltistan, which was incredibly
beautiful, and from there we continued on to Karachi. There are three main ideas
or concepts that really stood out to me during
my trip to Pakistan. Number one, is the welcome
and the hospitality of people, and we were filming food
video, so we were going from restaurant to restaurant and street food stall
to street food stall, but there was not one day that went by during this trip to Pakistan,
where we tried to pay for the food, and one
of the vendors would not accept our payment. They said it would dishonor them if we paid them money for the food, and so that was so heart-warming, and every single day people would come up. They would want to shake our hands, they want to take a photo. They would just want to
welcome us to Pakistan and say thank you for being here, for traveling to Pakistan. Number two is the food. And of course we traveled
to Pakistan for the food. The food was unbelievable,
from karachis to kabobs to niharis to piyas and all
the street food in between. You’ll find food everywhere
and it’s so rich, it’s so flavorful. Food was incredible. Finally, number three is
the unbelievable landscapes and the scenery of Pakistan. Especially when you travel around the Gilgit-Baltistan region. The mountainous regions,
the Karakoram Mountains and the Himalayas. We traveled all the way
up to the Khunjerab Pass, which is at 16,000 feet, all the way down to Karachi at sea level. And in between, you’ll find deserts, you’ll find mountain valleys. It’s some of the most rugged,
jagged mountain scenery and glaciers I’ve ever seen in my life, and I was amazed by the
scenery of Pakistan. I want to say a massive thank you to Ali from Pakistan Travel Mart. He organized our trip, he
helped with everything. We traveled with him we ate with him. He’s so much fun to hang out with and without Ali, it
wouldn’t have been possible. So, huge thank you to Ali for making this entire trip happen. And finally, I want to
mention that Pakistan hasn’t always received the
most positive impression, and it has faced many
struggles and conflicts, but recently and then
in the past few years, Pakistan has made huge, major improvements in safety and security. And for what it’s worth, I would mention that on my 16 day trip, and we traveled pretty extensively through many regions of Pakistan,
that not even on one occasion, even in the major cities,
even the remote destinations, did I feel threatened or in danger. And actually, it was the total opposite. People just walking along
the streets, random people, they wanted to shake our hands.
They wanted to say welcome. They wanted to greet us. They wanted to say thank
you for visiting Pakistan. So, I owe it to the people of Pakistan. I’m so grateful for the
opportunity that I had to visit. It was privilege, and it was
one of the most memorable, one of the most unforgettable trips that I’ve ever had in my life. And one more thing. My new
favorite pair of footwear. Peshawari Chappals, with the thick soles. (laughing) Okay, that’s
all. Thank you so much! Pakistan, it was the trip of a lifetime. – [Man] Hey, how are
you? Nice to meet you! – How are you? I was out walking earlier in the morning, and I was thinking, how can I welcome you to Pakistan? – [Man] Thank you very much! (lively music)

  9. .actually mark went to northern areas of pakistan in winter season during heavy snowfall time of december january when few areas are blocked due to heavy snow but not all, the actual time to visit northern areas of pakistan is during summer from april may to september october when climate is less cold in northern areas like gilgit-baltistan region azad-jammu-kashmir region mansehra-naran-kaghan region malakand-swat-kalam region, murree-abottabad region, if u want to enjoy cold weather and snow then u can even visit northern ares in winter from november december to february.
    While for southern and central areas of pakistan like punjab, sindh, central & southern kpk its during winter and spring to visit from october to march, because in summers especially from april may to september many of these southern and central areas have hot weather especially at day time, but again summers can also be enjoyed in a way especially at night and early morning, anyways if you have no problem with hot weather then u can also visit these central and southern areas during summers from april may to september

  10. Thank you Mark for representing the inner beauty of Pakistan and Pakistan's. It was my wish to see you exploring and travelling in my very own land.
    I am so happy and honoured, finally someone from the other side of the world has this courage to spread awareness about Pakistan.
    We are the people of golden hearts, love you Mark

  11. Sir, i am an ardent viewer of your channel for the past 3 years. I always recommend your channel to my friends and family. This video of yours left me disgusted as i can feel it is a Pakistan army and dgispr sponsored video, and so was your entire trip in that region. My request to you is focus on making many such videos on food and do not promote tourism for a failed and terrorist state like Pakistan and/or China. In fact, u did not vouch for travel in Kenya or Ghana though they have conflicts in those countries too.

  12. Love from india to our pakistani brothers. For revealing this side of welcoming pakistan for which many are not really aware of. The food, the culture. Love always overshine and yes there are still so many people who haven't forgot the brotherhood between the two countries. ❤️

  21. Pakistan has the highest number of documented and estimated honour killings per capita of any country in the world.
    An Amnesty International report noted "the failure of the authorities to prevent these killings by investigating and punishing the perpetrators
    -As Sarwar sought assistance for a divorce from her first cousin, her family arranged her murder
    – He alleged his eight months' pregnant daughter was tortured and killed on March 7, 2008, by members of her village
    -On 27 May 2014 a pregnant woman named Farzana Iqbal (née Parveen) was stoned to death by her family
    Many more murders and info here.

    I cannot respect a people who murder their women.
