Regardless of its unconquerable landscape and erratic climate designs, it advances to climbers from everywhere in the world.

Even though it is situated on the Pakistan-China line, climbers like to climb it from Pakistan's side as it is more helpful for the movement.

Regardless of whether you don't seek to join its culmination, simply the simple display of this strong mountain is a point-of-view adjusting experience that permits you to get submerged in the comprehensive brilliance of the unstoppable force of life.

It is about 800 feet [800m] from the surrounding arid mountains. It was first erected in 1977 and has been a sacred stone for the mountains ever since.

4) Thar Desert

The lifestyle of the Thar Desert is completely different and wouldn’t be found anywhere else in Pakistan. This makes it a place worth visiting. It is occupied by the sandy hills and oasis. Water supply is short here which greatly influences the region. You wouldn’t find the regular green trees and plantations here. In fact, the only plants here are the cactus and thorny bushes. Visiting this place, surviving the heat and living in a mud house with special clothes on is an amazing change.

Location: Partly in Punjab and Sindh provinces, Pakistan

5) Saif-ul-Malook Lake

Saif-ul-Malook lake is a crystal clear lake engulfed by gigantic glaciers and immersed in some of the most intriguing folklore in Pakistan. It is at an altitude of 10,578 feet and is one of the most majestic tourist spots in the Kaghan Valley, attracting people from all over the world to contemplate its beauty and revel in its glory. The lake is shrouded in mystery because up until today, no one has ever been able to determine its depth and it is believed that anyone who dares to swim in it drowns almost immediately. Its beauty is so intense that it sometimes becomes terrifying under the radiance of a starlit sky that is immaculately reflected by the crystal clear water. It is believed to have fairies living in the glaciers that surround it and is the backdrop against which the famous fable of the prince of Egypt, Saif-ul-Malook, and the fairy queen, Badi-ul-Jamal, took place.

The voyage to this exotic place is a little challenging, but everybody who has completed it has returned both delighted and shocked.

Ansoo Lake is unique in that the entire lake is precisely formed like a teardrop while also living at a height where water bodies do not normally exist. This makes it a mystery in more ways than one. It is the crown jewel of the Kaghan Valley, as it is one of the most famous and enchanting natural wonders in the north.

7) Attabad Lake

How can we forget about Attabad Lake when talking about Natural Wonders in Pakistan. It is a beautiful and clean body of water amid nowhere, surrounded by the Hunza Valley's rugged topography. It's as calm as an aged tree, and the water's blue rivals the sky. Its birth was marred by tragedy and loss, as it was the result of a landslide that drowned the entire village of Gojal. Although people are saddened by the loss of life, they are filled with awe and reverence for the emergence of this divine body of water.

Location: Attabad, Gilgit−Baltistan, Pakistan

8) Princess of Hope

Along the Makran Coast Highway, there is a dazzling sculpture carved out of natural rock and mud that has been marvelously sculpted out of the skilled hands of nature itself. Due to the strong winds emanating from the Arabian Sea in the Balochistan region, this masterpiece stands as tall and proud as a princess of a great kingdom. The name ‘Princess of Hope’ was given to this magnificent natural sculpture by Angelina Jolie on her visit to Pakistan.

10) The Hingol National Park

The Hingol National Park is situated in Pakistan’s troubled southwestern province of Balochistan. It is mostly famous for the Makran Coastal Highway, which snakes across an inhospitable lunar landscape and passes several bizarre rock formations, most notably a rock resembling the Sphinx of Giza and the so-called Princess of Hope, a rock formation in the shape of a human being on a rocky outcrop.

Another important feature of the national park is a mud volcano, the only one in South Asia and at the same time the highest located mud volcano in the world. Its geological features aside, the 1650 square kilometers park is also an important habitat for Ibex, Gazelles, Urials and a large number of bird species.
