Pakistan is endowed with rich and varied flora and fauna. High Himalayas, Karakoram, and the Hindukush range with their alpine meadows and permanent snow line, coniferous forests down the sub-mountain scrub, the vast Indus plain merging into the great desert, the coastline, and wetlands, all offer a remarkably rich variety of vegetation and associated wildlife including a fauna, both endemic and migratory. Ten of 18 mammalian orders are represented in Pakistan with species ranging from the world’s smallest surviving mammal, the Mediterranean Pygmy Shrew, to the largest mammal ever known; the blue whale.
From the mighty stretches of the Karakoram in the North to the vast alluvial delta of the Indus River in the South, Pakistan remains a land of amazing adventure and nature. Trekking, mountaineering, white water rafting, wild boar hunting, desert jeep safaris, camel and yak safaris, trout fishing, and bird watching, are a few activities, which entice adventure and nature lovers to Pakistan.
