Pakistan is hand’s down my favourite adventure destination in the world… This is a land of towering peaks and uncharted rivers, gorgeous glaciers, ancient traditions and some of the world’s most hospitable people.

I’ve spent three months backpacking in Pakistan, travelling far and wide and meeting many incredible people upon my journey. The friendships I have made whilst travelling in Pakistan have been some of the most memorable of my nine years on the road and I cannot wait to visit Pakistan again in 2017. If you too want to visit Pakistan next year, now is your chance…

Meet Shah and Lizzy

Shah and Lizzy

Whilst hanging out in Lahore, I spent a good deal of time with a truly inspiring man – Hamza, known as Shah to his friends. Shah helped me roam around all over Lahore, driving me hither and thither on his motorbike, treating me to street food, showing me the Paris of Pakistan (it’s even got an Eiffel Tower!) and quickly becoming my friend.

Shah is, like me, a nomad. He has been riding a motorbike ever since he could walk and is one of the most experienced motorcycle riders I have ever met. He has ventured many times all over Pakistan, trekking deep into the mountains in search of glacial lakes, braving some of the world’s highest roads to reach incredible vistas and camping out under the stars upon the mighty Deosai Plain.

In March this year, Shah travelled across Pakistan once more with Lizzy, a veteran female traveler with a passion for all things adventure. Together, the two came up with a cunning plan…

Motorcycle Pakistan – Adventure Tour 2017

In July 2017, Shah and Lizzy will be running the first ever motorcycle Pakistan adventure tour – a twenty day adventure trip taking in many of the incredible highlights of Pakistan…

The concept is simple; Take a small group of explorers deep into the wilds of Pakistan on a motorcycle journey unlike any other.

It’s a small operation with a focus on cultural experiences and real, off-the beaten path, adventures.

I am absolutely STOKED to announce that Broke Backpacker readers get a discount on the tour price in order to further our efforts to promote tourism in Pakistan.
