This book is one of the best i've read, it covers pakistan and kashmire, each place is grouped into sections with it's own map of the area. real good book worth the money you gonna pay for it. I'm from pakistan myself and found the book to be quite accurate.

The BEST Pakistan guidebook.
Still essential in 2014 though this hasn't been updated in over 10 years.
Much better than the Lonely Planet editions and this also combines a comprehensive trekking section.

This is the best single country guidebook I've ever used. It is the definitive guide to this excellent country to visit and other books published on the area are very poor relations. Whether you are looking for the best guide to visit the cities or trekking in the mountains - this is the book. The trip to Kashgar (China) is also covered in detail.
Also the best book published by Footprints (by a long, long way) in my opinion.

Most leading publishers do not market a guide to Pakistan, possibly because the country does not attract many tourists. Official advice as at 2010 recommends not visiting many areas. This is a good guide if you are to visit those areas not listed as unsafe, or if you are visiting relatives and consider that you can explore the surrounding area relatively un-noticed.

Look no further for the best guidebook ! 23 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Pakistan is a fascinating and unfairly under-rated country. It certainly is one of the poorest in the world but its people are the most welcoming you will ever meet and the scenery is enthralling. I promised myself I'll keep returning to Pakistan every year since my first discovery trip (1998). Look no further for the best guidebook to Pakistan. This new edition is VERY detailed and informative and has even succeeded in improving on the already brilliant previous edition. In my opinion, Lonely Planet's updated 1998 edition is not bad either but does not compare. Have a wonderful journey ! And please, if you go to Lahore, don't miss the beautiful Wazir Khan mosque !

Excellent and very thorough guide 13 May 2002
By Aemad A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While in pursuit if my passion of travel, I have had the chance to use several types of guides, but never have I enjoyed reading any guide as this one. Very detailed, yet simply arranged, and excellent recommendations. Very accurate trekking information is also included in it, along with the typical "touristy" material. Maps could use a little more detail, as I saw it. Prices and other recommendations were excellent! Awesome job!
If anyone is going to Pakistan, I would highly suggest getting this book. There are so many things that I have never known even though I was there for several months.

Highly Useful 8 July 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book and found it to be indespensible during two trips to Pakistan in the Summers of 03 and 04. A little skimpy on photos and the prices were outdated (it has not been updated since 1998 I wish they would too). other than that it was/is the best on the market, far more engaging and extensive than Lonely Planet. I see Footprint is expected to release a Guide to the Northern Areas. Although I welcome this I think far too many tourists neglect the four provinces down country. This is really where the guide book shines for it reveals so much about the majority of the country that other books neglect or skim over.
