The country housing the land of the five rivers and home to one of the earliest human civilizations, the Indus Valley Civilization needs no introduction. Pakistan is known for its rich fertile land all over Punjab and its vast deserts that stretch all over Sindh. The cold mountain ranges of the North and the deep underground salt and coal mines of the South. Rated as one of the top potential tourist destinations for the year 2020, Pakistan is the hub of natural reserves that peaks in an exceptional landscape.
Every province, Sindh, Punjab, Baluchistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa caters to diverse tribal ethnicities and other migrant folks. All cultivating and producing the culture of Pakistan.
