Pakistan Heritage is an exciting effort to combine some ancient civilizations, untouched cultural sights, historical sights, museums as well as to trace the footsteps of Alexander the Great who traveled in the region around 326 BC capturing the world. The 11 day journey begins at Lahore with an exploration of examples of the Great Mughal’s spectacular architecture, followed by a visit to Shalimar Gardens and Lahore Museum which has the finest collections of Gandharan civilization, i.e. the famous statue of the fasting Buddha. We then travel to the site of the centuries old Harrapa Civilization and then move further towards Islamabad and Swat Valley. At Kalash Valley, we meet the true descendents of Alexander the Great. The trip concludes at Peshawar with a day’s excursion to the Khyber Pass, the entry point of many invaders including Alexander the Great, the Aryans, Mughals, Ghenghis Khan, the Scythians and the Parthians
