Pakistan's northers areas have attracted tourists from far off areas over the years.

Mountain climbers, skiing enthusiasts and holiday goers alike have found their ideal location in the scenic spots of Pakistan's mountainous regions.

Recently, however, the area has seen a dip in its fortunes with the shambolic security situation in the country and in its north in particular. The daring few continue to visit the picturesque region, and bring back souvenirs to show the rest what they are missing out on. — Photos by Pharan Tanveer (Student at Lahore University of Mangement Sciences)
