Woohoo! You might have booked up a trip (with Exploria) to the breathtaking North of Pakistan and you feel pumped and ready to explore a whole new dimension of nature. You have probably started packing weeks before the journey with all the essentials that you will require during your stay there. The day when you will embark upon the thrilling journey is arriving fast and you are under the process of preparing your mind. Nature indeed waits, with open arms, for you to explore, for you to ponder upon its beauty! But the question arises that when we do explore nature do we take extra care to respect and preserve its features? Or do we find pleasure in visiting it as complete aliens, with no other motive but to invade and destroy?

Before you begin your journey, there is something that you should consider and it is indeed of great significance both for you, your fellow humans as well as for other life forms on Earth.

As we are ALL part of this majestic system, every being fitted as a puzzle piece in the functioning of this undoubtedly beautiful planet. Even a single missing or broken piece can ruin the entire puzzle. The system of Earth seems so indestructible yet is extremely delicate. On this apparently huge planet, we only inhabit a tiny area. This is who we are! And yet outside that blue sky is a darkness, calm yet deadly! This pale blue orb in the darkness, our Earth, is our TRUE home. Our mother! Our behavior towards our home, is it hostile? Is it the complete opposite of what it expects from us?

Some ask, why care? Well, the planet which has nurtured Human kind like a true mother from the time when we were less and were at our weakest, gave us food, shelter, and protection from both external and internal forces that were against our existence to the time now that we have thrived and developed to the fullest. Doesn’t Earth deserve care?

But Humans don’t do what is expected, do they? No. They seek pleasure in doing what harms Mother Earth the most. Cutting down ACRES of trees; yet forgetting that it’s not money that they can breathe, chopping down trees; yet complaining that it doesn’t rain anymore, blasting away mountains; yet complain about the ground shaking (Earthquakes), creating oil spills in the waterbodies; yet complain about decreasing quantity and quality of seafood. MURDERING wildlife for personal gains like fur from the seals, horns from the rhinos, ivory from the elephants, take birds for pets and uncountable others. Burning fuel and complain about clean air. Throwing plastic into the landfills, yet complain about cleanliness. If I start counting the damages to the Mother Earth by man then it may take hundreds of pages, but ask yourself, aren’t these above-mentioned deeds of ours enough to make us ashamed of our own humanity?

Nature is ever watchful and it monitors our deeds and though we humans seek comfort in believing that the good times will remain forever but look around you … don’t you see the disturbance happening? The instability in nature? It has started. But if we all aren’t willing to join hands soon to heal mother Earth and continue down this path of ignorance than brace yourself because WE, humans, are going to be the next organisms on the Planet to get endangered and may be extinct. But hope and action is something that can change destinations.

So, on your journey to the beautiful North of Pakistan, through the world’s most famous mountain ranges I request you to take extra care of nature and to:

Local volunteers in Hunza are burning useless garbage

“Take nothing but photos and leave nothing but footprints”.

Respect the calm, respect the wildlife, respect the cleanliness and above all to help preserve nature for the coming generations, because Earth belongs to all. I ask you to enjoy but in a way that you soak in the beauty as well as preserve the image of humankind in the eye of nature since our humanity and our intelligence is what makes us Humans! Now that you are aware, the decision to act is entirely yours, but know this that those who choose to act, Earth never forgets them.

So traveler,

“For walk where we will, we tread upon some story.” ― Marcus Tullius Cicero

So long!

We were a group of friends traveled with Exploria to the heavenly Northern Pakistan. The company made sure our tour experience goes smoothly. Accommodation, food, and the vehicle was the best. The trip was quite a challenge for Exploria due to the weather fluctuations however, the company made sure all things go smoothly. Thanks Exploria for an amazing tour experience. I would certainly recommend Exploria to all my friends and family.

Had a great experience travelling with Exploria! Their entire team is natives of the beautiful northern Pakistan. Everything was so well organised from the accommodation to the food to the tours. The management was nice and looked after all our needs, making sure everything was perfect. I will certainly recommend Exploria to everyone visiting Pakistan. Best tour operator in Pakistan.

I messaged Exploria in WhatsApp and got into contact with someone who introduced himself as Ashraf, one of the owners. On a Friday night I secured a booking for Monday for a day tour of Islamabad. I signed off with, "I'm looking forward to meeting you. See you Monday." On Sunday night I got a message asking if I was still interested in the tour because "I haven't heard back from you." I messaged back late night/early morning because of the timing of my flight and surprisingly heard from Ashraf. When I arrived in Islamabad, I messaged Ashraf at our appointed meeting time that I was in my hotel room and ready to meet when he was ready. I heard nothing back. I sent a brief query then took a nap. When I awoke, two hours after our scheduled meeting, still no response. So, I contacted the manager of the hotel and asked if he could suggest a tour for me. I was staying at a 5-star hotel (1st night only), so the manager took it upon himself to try and sort the issue with Exploria first. After several phone calls to both Ashraf's phone and the company's landline, I got one message from Ashraf stating he thought I didn't want the tour. At this point, the hotel manager had been contacting both numbers asking if someone was coming for my tour -- clearly I still wanted the tour! When I messaged that fact to Ashraf, he went radio silent again. Meanwhile, I had my tour of Islamabad with a guide the hotel set up -- at a much reduced rate. That evening I had a couple back-and-forths with Ashraf about how he thought I didn't want the tour because I "never got back to him." He kept doubling down that the communication issue was my fault despite my clear messaging and calls from the manager of a 5-star hotel! The cautionary tale is this: Mine was just a one-day tour, so my trip to Pakistan wasn't ruined. However, imagine if I'd secured their services for one of those multi-day, multi-location tours, and they left me stranded that way after I'd already arrived in the country. In short, I would be very leery of a company that has no problem ghosting a customer on the very day of a scheduled excursion.

Still in awe after watching picturesque sights at Hunza It was our company (Cricingif) trip managed by the cordial staff of Exploria. The AC coaster bus was in good condition and we didn't experience any problems in our journey to Gilgit Baltistan from Lahore. The hotels that they booked for us were good and I really enjoyed the indigenous music performance at Heavens Lodge hotel. Food was fine too as I was concerned about the hygiene, but it all turned out fine in the end. They can improve in the realm of guiding tourists at the spots that they take us to and share interesting insights about all those spectacular places in the beautiful Hunza valley. Nanga Parbat, Rakaposhi, Husseini Bridge, Forts, and Attabad Lake are all worth watching. I see Exploria becoming a top-notch company very soon if they continue to focus on providing immaculate services and keep customer satisfaction high. Thank you for a memorable trip!
