Located in Southern Asia, bordering the Arabian Sea, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan is slightly less than twice the size of California but the world's fifth-most populous country.
This populous and multiethnic country is located between India on the east, Iran and Afghanistan on the west and China in the north. The country’s climate is mostly hot, dry desert; temperate in northwest; arctic in north. Pakistan remains a land of high adventure and nature, with high ranges as High Himalayas, Karakoram and the Hindukush. The country, blessed with abundant natural and historical riches, is home to several mountain peaks over 7.000 m. Because of ongoing security problems in Pakistan, foreign governments advise against all travel, or all but essential travel, to many parts of the country.
