Photos du Pakistan


Le nom du Pakistan signifie 'pays des purs' en ourdou et en persan. Le Nord du Pakistan (ourdou: پاکستان) est un endroit merveilleux à visiter, grâce à la gentillesse des gens ('vous êtes un invité dans ce pays, bienvenue au Pakistan') et à la magnificence des paysages de montagne. J'ai passé deux mois au total au Pakistan, principalement dans Hunza, Baltistan et autour de Chitral, où il faisait moins chaud et humide que sur les basses terres de Peshawar ou Rawalpindi-Islamabad. Le pays abrite de nombreux groupes ethniques différents avec un grand nombre de langues. L'ourdou est la lingua franca et de nombreuses personnes parlent aussi l'anglais.

landslide pakistan

Northern Areas : On the KKH (Karkorum Highway).
What is hanging above the Hunza river is all that is left from a truck that go burried under
a landslide a few days before I passed here. The driver and the cargo were saved but not the truck.
The dark colour of the river is due to the silt eroded by the glaciers.
