“Visitors can follow in Michael Palin’s steps while traversing the 12,250ft Shandur Pass, home to the world’s highest polo field, or meet with the Kalash people of the Hindu Kush, famed for their cowrie-shell headdresses and brighter-than-bright embroidery,” it noted.

This is a welcome sign for the country which has seen an influx in international tourists and travel bloggers in recent times. The magazine’s top three destinations are Pakistan, Plymouth in UK and Kyrgyzstan.
