With a rich culture, historical monuments and scenic outposts – primarily in the north – the country is a veritable heaven on earth.

According to the figures of World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), Pakistan’s travel and tourism industry contributed PKR. 780.4bn directly to the GDP last year, with a 3.2% year-on-year increase projected for this year. Moreover, when considering both direct and indirect contribution, tourism contributed around 7% of the GDP in 2015, with a forecasted increase of 4.4% this year.
