Northern Pakistan’s picturesque Kaghan Valley is a place of fairytales. According to one version of a local legend, a prince of Persia fell in love with a fairy princess on the crystalline waters of Lake Saiful Muluk, pictured above.

The route starts in Karachi and runs through Gwadar to the Iran border, and is considered a major infrastructural achievement.

Natural rock sculptures, like the sphinx-shaped “Lion of Balochistan,” can be found along the highway.
