It would not be wrong to say that Pakistan has been performing quite well in the tourism department in the recent years. The number of foreign tourists visiting the country is increasing with every passing year. And despite this gradual increase, the number of tourists visiting each year is not where near the true potential that Pakistan has. So, there is a need for the government and the private sector to do more in the tourism department. Not only will it bring foreign revenue along with the foreign tourists, it will also help develop the soft image of Pakistan.

For now, enjoy these amazing pictures of Pakistan that show why the British Backpacker Society has ranked Pakistan the number one adventure tourist destination in 2018.
