Arrival in Lahore, the cultural capital of Pakistan.
I’ll meet and greet you at the airport, after which we’ll check into Luxus Grand hotel (5*).
We’ll spend some time together as a group, getting to know each other before the adventure begins. It will be a trip full of intense experiences so having a chill evening will help us ease into the experience.
We’ll have breakfast at the Luxus Grand hotel. Prepare to eat a lot on the trip as Pakistani people are very hospitable and always do their best to make sure you’re well fed!

Next, we’ll head to the border with India but we won’t be crossing it! We’ll cheer for Pakistan and take part in an event you’ve never seen anywhere else – the Wagah-Attari Border ceremony. You’ll feel like you’re at a football match but instead of players, you’ll witness flamboyant soldiers putting up a military show, shaking hands, and lowering the flags of Pakistan and India to demonstrate cooperation and brotherhood between the two nations. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before!
We’ll end the day with a traditional dinner.

We’ll visit a few places in Skardu:
- Lower Kachura Lake (Shangrila)

- Katpana Desert
We’ll have dinner at the hotel where we’ll staying, the amazing Arish Luxury Suites. It’s 4* because we’re deep into the mountains but the quality of this hotel is just as good. You’ll have a comfortable place to unwind after a day of exploring.
Another day and a completely new adventure!
