Pakistan should be on everyone’s tourist destination for 2017; but what if you already live there? Then perhaps you should consider visiting these five must visit places for the new year. In a country of mughals and mountains, wild frontiers and scattered ruins you will be amazed at the beauty you can find. Lamudi presents the five unmissable destinations to explore this year.
Saiful Mulook Lake is a mountainous lake located at the northern end of the Kaghan Valley, near the town of Naran. It is in the north east of Mansehra District in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, Pakistan and feeds water to Kunhar river. At an elevation of 3,224 m (10,578 feet) above sea level, it is well above the tree line, and is one of the highest lakes in Pakistan.
Lake Saiful Mulk rewards those that make the three-hour uphill walk from Naran. You will find the pathway just above the bazaar, but there is an option to get a jeep and split the costs with some other tourists; expect to pay about Rs700, worth it to view this natural beauty.

Deosai is located on the boundary of Karakoram and the western Himalayas, and at no point it is less than 4000 meters above sea level. It remains covered with snow for 8 months. The rest of the year, it hosts a range of beautiful flowers of all hues and colours, but not a single tree is found in this plateau spread over 3000 sq. km.
Sheosar lake is also part of this. This lake is one of the highest lakes in the world. The deep blue water, with snow-covered mountains in backdrop, and greenery with wild flowers in foreground offer such a view in summers, that one is left amused for the rest of his life.
The breathtaking scenery on display at the plains is enough to make 2017 a memorable year.
Accessible via a 2.5-hour drive from Gilgit, this gem is well worth visiting. Covered with pine trees and otherworldly plantlife its has a dreamlike feel to it. This is an Instagrammers dream, lush colors all year round will make you fall in love.
Right in the north of Pakistan in the central valley of Gilgit Baltistan is a picture perfect location. Locals call this a paradise, and that’s what it feels like. No visit is complete without checking out the restaurant which is built in the structure of an aircraft.
The Rama Meadow doesn’t feel like Pakistan at all; it looks more like somewhere in Minnesota in a time long since passed. Watch the sheep and cows grazing while the crystal clear water flows in streams from high in the mountains. Cast against the backdrop of Chongra’s ice-covered peak and Nanga Parbat’s southern ridges this little meadow is a piece of art.
