FREE Books on Pakistan


Recently, we were thinking of ways that we could enhance our clients' experiences of Pakistan and we realised that there is some amazing literature out there about Pakistan and from Pakistan that really does entertain, educate and inform.

 

So rather than getting people interested after their visit, we want you all to get really into Pakistan before you go!

 

From April 1st 2012 every client that comes with us will get a selection of books that  are related to the places that they will be visitng in Pakistan. If you already have any of them then we'll happily give you another.

 

For the Kalash Spring Festival we will be giving you the following:

 

1. A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush by Eric Newby

2. Empires of The Indus by Alice Albinia

3. Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson

4. Pakistan: Beyond The 'Crisis State' edited by Maleeha Lodhi 

 

We'll be thinking up others for the other tours so please do send us your suggestions

Welcome to 2012


So the big update from us is that the new website is finally here!

 

We'd begun to wonder if it was ever going to get completed but here it is. We've done as much testing as possible but we're only human so if you see something that doesn't work or look right, can you let us know please as we'll get our developers on to it to fix it asap.

 

In a similar vein, if there's something that you just don't like or it's annoying you or you think we could have done it better then again, please let us know. No guarantees that we can change it but if we can and you're not the only one saying it then why not.

 

2011 saw quite a few trips that took place throughout the year as more of you took up some of the Historical and Cultural Tours. We also got a chance to run our first Special Interest tour of Pakistan's Archaeology and Sufi Shrines. For this we used a specialist guide who had a masters in archaeology so you knew you were in good hands! The trip went so well that we're excited to offer it up as a regular itinerary.

 

We'll be expanding these trips over the course of 2012 by adding specialists tours such as wildlife, mountain biking, festivals and photoraphy  to name but a few.

 

Our Facebook page is doing very well with now almost 500 fans so we hope to double that very soon. For those of you that don't use Facebook, we've provided the feed from the page so it still allows you to view the updates on the new homepage.

March Events


1. The Problems Facing Pakistan and It's Leadership

 

Political tension are rising in Pakistan following the the Supreme Court's decision to charge Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gilani with contempt for failing to re-open corruption cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.

 

The government has also been under pressure as a result of what's become known as "memogate" after an unsigned memo emerged asking for US help to avert a coup by the Pakistani army.

With the outlook for the Pakistani government so uncertain, there is concern that the country's many and complex problems, including its dire economic situation, dealings with its domestic Taliban, drone attacks, as well as the aftermath of floods and other natural catastrophes will be overlooked.

The Frontline Club will be bringing together a panel of experts to discuss the deepening political crisis in Pakistan and what lies ahead.

Chaired by the BBC's Owen Bennett-Jones, he was BBC Pakistan correspondent between 1998 and 2001 and is author of Pakistan: Eye Of The Storm.

With:

Omar Waraich, he has been covering Pakistan for TIME Magazine and The Independent since 2007. He regularly appears as a commentator on Al-Jazeera English, CNN and NPR. Twitter:@OmarWaraich

Date: 7th March 2012

Latest FCO advice on travel to Pakistan


 

Update 30th Jan 2012

 

The advice on travel to Pakistan often causes concern for potential travellers. It is indeed unfortunate that terrorist related activities have occurred in Pakistan and the Foreign Office has a duty to err on the side of caution especially since 9/11, the London bombings and ongoing unrest in the North West of Pakistan by the Afghan border. 

 

It is sad to see that the current advice is against visiting Peshawar which was visited by our clients in August 2008 and 2011 with absolutely no problems at all. I will forward on the testimonials of the clients that were with us to the British High Commission in the hope that the advice can be reviewed.

 

Sadder still is the advice not to visit the Kalash Valleys where we visited only in Sep 2011 and that was after a major incusion by milatants by the Afghan border.

 

There has been an advisory against travelling the KKH between Islamabad and Gilgit for some years now and what we feel is really out of date. Still, there is a route that can avoid the majority of this but only as far as Chilas where so many of you want to visit the sublime Fairy Meadows.
