Its probably not very wise to go to pakistan at this moment. The elections have been moved to februari. I would not go outside around election time in februari. I booked a ticket for Pakistan 2 weeks ago for my final thesis in Lahore. But I am not sure if I will be all safe going there now. Although I still think that especially the border areas with afghanistan, the nortwest frontier and baluchistan are the most dangerous. In the rest of the country u will be relatively safe, even now. Just be very alert everywhere u go and dont go to the places I mentioned. Also avoid mobs, but i think that is pretty obvious.

Pakistan is an awesome country. I have been there last year. Stunning nature in the north. The cities are interesting. Despite all the bad publicity, the people are really good.

Quoting rola_jutt

spiritual's post is kinda funny, i enjoyed it... :)

March/April is the start of hiking and trekking season, not many has got a chance to trek in Mighty Himalayas & Karakorams.... its just AMAAAZING.... reaching the base camp of one of the highest peaks in the WORLD is just WOW...

elections(polls) are announced to be held in mid Feb, so there might be some polictical happenings that you might not to get involved in. Rest all is OK, there are rough places in every country, u can get mugged/killed/stabbed even in Manhattan NY... and yes, there is definitely loads of difference between Pakistan & Afghanistan...


cheers & have a safe trip...

WEll, as usual, an indian making mockery of pakistan. There is as much anarchy going on in various provinces of india as pakistan has. But the difference is that media doesnt show it. Thousands of muslims have been killed in gujrat and ahmedabad. Also, there are many seperation movements going on in many provinces of india. BUT WHO CARES.

Now, i think the best time visit pakistan is in jan and feb, before elections. If u come to karachi. Do send me a message. I will be there for necessary coperation. As for now, things are calm here and back to normal.
