BICYCLE TOUR ON THE KARAKORAM HIGHWAY
8TH WONDER OF THE WORLD
PlA's interest in the promotion of sports in Pakistan goes far beyond the cricket fields and the hockey arenas. The Bicycle Tour along the Silk Route, which PIA has organised with great success over the years is a prime example of this wide ranging interest.
The Bicycle Tour provides an excellent opportunity for those who like cycling as a sport, and for the adventurous. This tour attracts some of the world's famous cyclists alongwith a host of thrill seekers.
Not surprisingly, on this tour, one gets to see the enthralling natural beauty of Pakistan's North-West real close. The Silk Route winds its way through some of the most spectacular scenic spots: the beautiful Swat Valley; the splendour of Gilgit, the awe-inspiring mountains and the sparkling rivers. Participants are also able to not only see, but also travel along, the Eighth Wonder of the world, the Karakoram Highway, as well as cycling to the Pak-China border at Khunjerab Pass.
PlA's Bicycle Tour is a truly wonderful way of combining travel and sports.
