Pakistan Gandhara Buddha Tour, - [ Cultural and Heritage Tours ]

Zone:               Open

Duration:           15 Days

Best Time:        Round the Year

 

The Gandhara tour is designed to explore the hidden treasures of ancient history and the marvels of nature of the northern valleys of Pakistan. The Gandhara Civilization (500 BC to 10th Century AD), an era devoted mainly to Buddhism, has been the centre of spiritual influence as well as art and architecture. It was from here that Buddhism spread towards east as far as Japan and Korea. Despite the vagaries of centuries, Taxila and Swat Valley have preserved these heritages in art and craft. Peshawar and Swat host the finest remains of the civilization. But the more intriguing is the visit of the archaeological sites spread all over Taxila, Swat and other parts of North West Frontier Province of Pakistan and the Gilgit-Baltistan that have been discovered in the twentieth century. Along with the journey into the history, one enjoys the splendors of nature while traveling in the valleys of Swat, Indus, Gilgit and Hunza.
