  1. Day 1 Arrive - Karachi

    Arrival in Karachi early morning.
    For those who arrive early, there is a chance to visit some places of interest including the Mausoleum of Quaid e Azam and the Mohatta Palace.
    Overnight in Karachi

  2. Day 2 Karachi - Thatta - Hyderabad

    A day trip to visit Thatta and the Necropolis of Makli Hills, a UNESCO world heritage site. There is also time to visit the Chaukundi tombs and the remains of Bhanbore – the old port where Islam first came to the region.
    Then continue on to Hyderabad.
    Overnight in Hyderabad

  3. Day 3 Hyderabad – Ranikot – Manchar Lake - Sehwan Sharif

    Drive from Hyderabad to Sehwan Sharif via Ranikot and Manchar Lake.
    Sehwan Sharif is an extremely holy shrine which sees visitors from all over Pakistan come to pay their respects to the Sufi saint Lal Shahbaz Qalandar.
    Overnight in Sehwan Sharif

  4. Day 4 Sehwan Sharif – Moenjadaro – Larkana - Sukkur

    Moenjadaro is the best-preserved city of the Indus Valley people who lived here between 2500 and 1500 BC. The site is divided into three main areas. One contains the main stupa, granary, ritual baths and other communal religious areas, another contains homes of wealthier residents whilst a third contains homes of less wealthy residents. There is also a museum with further artefacts on display.
    We will also visit the Bhutto shrines at Larkana.
    Overnight in Sukkur

  5. Day 5 Sukkur – Uch Sharif - Derawar Fort - Multan

    Visit the shrines of Uch Sharif before heading out into the Cholistan desert. You will be able to explore the 8th-century Derawar Fort before heading to Pakistan’s city of shrines – Multan.
    Overnight in Multan

  6. Day 6 Multan - Harappa - Lahore

    From Multan, you will drive onwards to Lahore stopping at the Indus Valley site of Harrapa. The site itself offers much less to see compared to Moenjadaro. Much of the brick from Harappa was used by local villagers and by the British for the nearby railway line. We will have time to visit the museum and see what does remain.
    Once in Lahore, there may be a chance to visit shrines where Sufi mystics spin to the beat of the Dohl drum at night.
    Overnight in Lahore

  7. Days 7 & 8 Lahore

    You have two full days in and around Lahore. You will be able to spend time in the narrow alleyways of the old city including the largest medieval mosque in the world. The awesome Badshahi mosque. You will also have the option to visit the Lahore museum, Wazir Khan mosque and Lahore Fort.
    We will also head out of Lahore in the afternoon to the Indian border at Wagah to witness the daily flag ceremony. Huge crowds gather to watch the Indian and Pakistani border guards lower their flags.
    Overnight in Lahore

  8. Day 9 End

    Transfer to airport.
    End of trip

Accommodation

We do not and cannot offer a uniform accommodation standard on our itineraries. Even if we wanted to, the reality is that standards in Islamabad cannot be compared to a guesthouse in a small town. We consider comfort, location, design, character, historical interest and whether the money we spend will go into the pockets of the local community when we make our choices of where to stay.
The accommodation will be based on guests sharing a twin room.
If you would like a private room, an optional single supplement can be purchased for US$400.

  • Tips

We do not directly arrange international flights to Pakistan. We can suggest routes and operators.

We do not arrange Pakistan visas directly. We will provide visa support in the form of letters of invitation to assist in your Pakistan visa application.

We include breakfast every day. We also include some other meals in remote areas when trekking as stated on the itinerary. In our experience people sometimes want to eat different things in different places at different times and when there is an option we will be happy for you to have your say. We know some great places and will also happily show you some of our favourite restaurants and tea houses. Some are luxurious, some are more earthy but all have character. However, we do not pretend to be the arbiters of good taste and are equally happy for you to go off and find your own favourites. However, when restaurants are unavailable we ensure that food is provided.

When we choose our vehicles and drivers we take into consideration the road conditions, the length of journey and the competence of the man behind the wheel. Most of the roads on this trip are paved although the state of the surface can vary. Your comfort and enjoyment of the journey is the first priority.

On this trip you will be accompanied by an English speaking guide from Untamed Borders for the whole time you are in Pakistan. This allows for greater flexibility and means that there will always be someone on hand to help or assist you.

The interior of Sindh and parts of the Punjab have a bad reputation and can often appear on black lists by the foreign office. However, we know these areas well and our guides are used to accompanying small groups to all parts of Pakistan. We may well be issued with an armed escort at Moenjadaro. However, we monitor the situation closely and we listen very carefully to advice from the foreign office and from our friends in the areas we visit. Our client’s safety is our primary concern. We must state that the tour leader has the final word with regards to changes in the itinerary for safety reasons. Whilst the route we have chosen passes through areas which we consider to be stable things can change and we may have to alter the route or cancel sections of the trip at short notice.
