Take a journey through the legendary Khyber Pass or the Thar Desert, the last vestiges of steam on Pakistan Railways. Charter trains operate through Khyber Pass while normal trains operations continue through the Thar Desert.
For the Khyber Safari, the best time is during winters. Mellow sun shine, breath taking scenery, the rhythmic chugging of steam locomotive hauling a train up one of the steepest grades possible on 5'-6'' track, all make journey an unforgettable experience. The hospitable Pushtoons in their traditional dresses and following their centuries old customs add to the flavour.
For present day Marco Polos' who don't mind missing 5-star hotel comforts at the end of the day and enjoy roughing it out, the journey through the Thar Desert will also be a memorable event.
