Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa  | Photo Gallery


Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa previously (NWFP- North West Frontier Province) has welcomed many conquerors, traders and settlers from times immemorial who entered the Indian subcontinent through the historic Khyber Pass. A true gateway to the East, the pass has echoed with the advance of such great adventurers as Alexander the Great, Mehmood Ghaznavi, Muhammad Ghory and Babar, the founder of the Mughal dynasty Stretching from the Hindukush mountains in the northwest to the Derajat Basin in the south, the mainly rocky terrain gives way to unexpected belts of green valleys. Some of the most breathtaking scenery is to be enjoyed in the valleys of Swat, Gilgit, Kalash and Hunza. Tourists, trekkers and mountain climbers flock here in the summer to savour the beauty of nature and the quaint ethnicity of the local tribesmen. The Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) to the northwest of the province, border on Afghanistan.

The Pathans, who are the main inhabitants of the province, are a proud and fiercely independent people. Historically, they have resisted domination from other races with a rugged ferocity reminiscent of the daunting mountains of their homeland. But friendly visitors to this land will receive the warmth of hospitality. The capital, Peshawar, is perhaps the oldest city in Pakistan and in its narrow alleys and bazaars one can catch colourful glimpses of the unique culture and handicrafts of the frontier people. Particularly famous are the beautiful tapestries of Swat, hand-made guns of Darra, and intricately crafted copper and brassware
