Deosai Bara pani suspension bridge in Pakistan is made up of wooden strips and heavy iron ropes. The bridge is located in Gilgit-Baltistan and leads to Deosai National Park in Skardu. Lakshman Jhula is a popular hanging bridge across the Ganga in Rishikesh. 
HolidayIQ Traveller Donarun Das says, “One of the two bridges connecting the main highway to the other side (temple side). It is a suspension bridge at around 25 mts height above the river. Cross from Ram jhula or Laxman Jhula and exit through the other.”

The Kaghan Valley is an alpine-climate valley in the north-east of Mansehra District of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province of Pakistan. 
HolidayIQ Traveller Jitaditya Narzary says, “Challenging, enticing and bewitching, the Valley of Flowers trip in Uttarakhand has been my most memorable holiday trip so far. It was difficult for a morbid city dweller to traverse the rocky upward slope with no one in the vicinity to even enquire about my last wishes in case I slipped and descended into those Himalayan pits.”

The old city of Peshawar is beautiful. It has several small and large bazaars like the Chitrali Bazaar, Qissa Khawani Bazaar, Khyber Bazaar, etc. It is a photographers delight. Ditto for old bazaars in Delhi!
HolidayIQ Traveller Sanjay Rana says, “ A lot of places to visit from site seeing, shopping, to seeing old buildings. Food that you get is good too with a lot of varieties at different places

HolidayIQ Traveller Yasmin Patel describes the awesome view of the snow-clad mountains from the second highest cable car in the world as a "surreal experience."

The Badshahi Mosque in Lahore is the second largest mosque in South Asia and the fifth largest mosque in the world. Make sure to check it out in both night and day.
Adds HolidayIQ Traveller Gandaa, “The mosque was imposing enough. Located adjacent to the market, this mosque deserves a visit after an exhilarating bicycle rickshaw ride through the narrow bustling streets. We were there on a day when there was a religious pilgrimage from the villages and we became part of the tour - it was a great one.”

6. Can't Tell The Landscape Of One From The Other - Hunza & Zanskar Valley

The Hunza is a mountainous valley in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of Pakistan. 
HolidayIQ Traveller Rohit Dhumane says, “One thing I would recommend would be Zanskar Valley rafting. It is icy cold water and 28 km rapids. Sounds pretty dangerous but is actually safe. But it definitely gives you the adrenaline rush you get in the moment of danger.”

7. Our Love For Architecture - Shahi Qila & Amber Fort

The Lahore Fort, locally referred to as Shahi Qila, is a citadel in the city of Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. 
HolidayIQ Traveller Arundhati Banerjee says, “The most impressive and visited fort in Jaipur, the Amber Fort will weave to you the life and times of the Rajputs kings and queens, A very beautiful view of the fort will greet you as you approach it across the garden and fountains with the caravan of elephants gradually climbing the ramparts of the fort. You could board one of the elephants or drive up to the fort. The fort inside is without much decorations but it has a very intriguing complex of rooms with wonderful history.”
