I reviewed several guidebooks on Pakistan before selecting this one. Lonely Planet is the best. It has the most detail information for travellers. Looking for a guesthouse, a motel, or a hotel in every corner of Pakistan, its in there. Travelling accross the country? Want to know how to make travel arrangement? Its all in there. Most importantly the prices are there. From the Arabian Coast to the borders of China, Iran and India this book is a traveller's survival kit; it all you need for you trip to Pakistan.
Born in Guyana and living in the USA, I decided to visit Pakistan in 1994. I was able to make my travel plans based on this guidebook. Its detail map was of great help. Where to stay, where to eat, what to buy, what to see and travel tips are all there. From this book I was able to get an accurate idea of how I should budget.
Using Lonely planet, I visited Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Taxila, Mardan, Peshawar, Saidu Sharif, Bahrain, Kalam (SWAT IS BEATIFUL), Muree, Abbotabad, Kaghan, Naran and Kashmir. My trip was a success thank to Lonely Planet. This guidebook is worth purchasing. Now that I am plannig to return to Pakistan I have purchased the 5th edition as I plan to visit Gilgit, Quetta, Chitral, Iran and India.

I recently completed a trip across the length of the Karakoram highway, and found this guide book excellent. It provided a lot of useful background on the different people and cultures whom we encountered, and had great information on the various towns and villages along the way. It was particularly helpful to have the phrasebook section at the back with all the different languages of the region. This is a wonderful part of the world to visit, but not the easiest to travel in, so a book like this makes all the difference.

I bought this book and just went through it. Actually I wanted to visit the Northern Areas of Pakistan and after reading this book I felt that I have visited the areas which even I have'nt heard about.If someone is planning to travel through Pakistan or China(Karakoram Highway)one should have read it to enjoy the travel throughly.

One of my dreams is to eventually visit the Karakoram Highway in Pakistan. It is therefore a great pleasure to have found this lightly used copy of the Lonely Planet book on visiting the Highway. I hope Pakistan sufficiently recovers to make the book useful.
