The British Backpacker Society (BBS) has ranked Pakistan as the world’s top travel destination for 2018. The society inspires people to travel to rarely visited destinations in the developing world.

BBS founders Samuel Joynson, 26, Adam Sloper and Michael Worrall, both 25, who between them have visited over 100 countries described Pakistan “home to some of the world’s friendliest and most hospitable people, and offers some of the world’s most dramatic mountain scenery.”

The group has recommended travelling to Hunza Valley, Kaghan Valley and climbing the Rakaposhi (7,788m) and Nanga Parbat (8,126m) peaks as “the mountain scenery was unimaginably beautiful, and we will remember it forever.”

The adventurists also insisted that tourists should take the Karakoram Highway as the road from Islamabad to the China border on the Khunjerab Pass offers “the world’s greatest road-trip”.
BBS described Pakistan as “one of the friendliest countries on earth, with mountain scenery that is beyond anyone’s wildest imagination.”

“Pakistan is the clear winner of the British Backpacker Society’s top 20 adventure travel destinations 2018. We encourage keen travellers to book a trip now” say the backpackers.
“Pakistan is one of the friendliest countries on earth. So, prepare to be invited into people’s homes, take more selfies than you can count, and have every preconception that you ever held about this area of the world changed forever,” said Joynson.

“The view from the Hon Pass was indeed the greatest natural sight that either of us has ever seen. We would recommend it to anyone with a keen interest in mountaineering.”

Russia, India, Turkey, Kyrgyzstan and China were also featured in the world’s top 20 adventure travel destinations for 2018.
