The country's capital since 1963, Islamabad has the look and feel of a planned administrative city because, by and large, that's exactly what it is.
When in Islamabad, make a side trip to see Pir Sohawa in Haripur, approximately Haripur away. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Margalla Hills, get a taste of the local shopping with The Centaurus Mall, get great views at Daman-e-Koh, and see human ingenuity at work at Rawal Lake.

Gothenburg, Sweden to Islamabad is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Gothenburg to Islamabad due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Gothenburg in June: high temperatures in Islamabad hover around 44°C and lows are around 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Tue) early enough to travel to Skardu.
