The mighty river Indus was marked the final frontier of Alexander’s great empire. Little did he know, that this river has seen a great civilization flourish on its banks, three thousand years before he invaded from the Khyber Pass. The land, which is now Pakistan, was the centre of Buddhism, a seat for the Mughal emperors and home to the mystic Sufis. Up in the north, its mighty mountains clad with eternal snows, gave way to the southern branch of the once fabled Silk Road. Exploring Pakistan, its diverse peoples, festive cultures, towering mountains, deserts and lush plains is like exploring the secret of Asia..
Mystic Pakistan and the Bassant Festival:
Without a doubt, this is once in a lifetime adventure. As we travel in the footsteps of Alexander the Great, we visit the indigenous boat people of the river Indus who live out of their boats and never step a foot on land. Pay tribute to the mystic shrines where the whirling dervishes will take you into a trance. Exploring the Indus Valley and the remains of its ancient civilization, which flourished long before Egypt’s Nile civilization.
Board your camels for an exciting adventure through the Cholistan Desert and discover the colourful arts of the desert people. Then it’s on to Punjab, the Land of the Five Rivers, known for its hospitality and generous folks. We end this tour in Lahore, the former Mughal capital of India, and take part in one of the most unique festivals in the world – “The Bassant of Lahore”
