Summary

At the edge of Alexander’s empire

Civilisation has flourished in Pakistan for more than 7,000 years, and this sublime country, little visited by western travellers, boasts myriad archaeological sites that reveal a rich ancient heritage in spectacular style. The Indus Valley civilisation comes to life in Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa, the timeline of Pakistan’s history is written in the stones of Taxila, and Andante guests are also invited to walk in the footsteps of Alexander the Great, not least on the banks of the Jhelum River, where he faced King Porus’ army of war elephants. Elegant mosques, serene tombs and bustling bazaars also enchant – don’t miss your opportunity to experience the wonders of Pakistan.    

Tour highlights:

  • Discover the enthralling archaeology of the Indus Valley civilisation, at spectacular sites Mohenjo-Doro, Harappa and Taxila
  • Visit the world’s largest necropolis, Makli, home to one million ornate Islamic tombs
  • Stand at the site of the Battle of the Hydaspes, where Alexander the Great faced an army of war elephants
  • Explore the mosques and mausolea of Uch, shimmering with blue tiles
