Pakistan National Parks

Pakistan has three major regions. In the north there are a series of mountain ranges containing some of the highest peaks in the world, including K-2. The northern highlands are very cold in winter with mild temperatures during the summer months of April to September. The Indus plain, the most fertile and densely populated area of Pakistan, lies to the east. The plains of the Indus are very hot in summer, and cold and dry in the winter. The Balochistan Plateau, located in the west, separates Pakistan from Afghanistan, This plateau, with an average altitude between 600-900 meter and without meaningful rain, is arid, sandy and sparsely populated with wildlife.

Pakistan has nearly 170 species of mammals, more than 650 bird species, nearly 200 species of reptiles and amphibians, about 200 freshwater fish species and over 5,000 species of invertebrates.
