A gateway to the legendary Khyber Pass, the Pakistani city of Peshawar summons images of ancient civilizations, romantic adventures and exotic locales. Peshawar is an intriguing study of resilience and assimilation. Along winding streets, modern amenities intermingle with historic bazaars filled with sights and aromas. The Old City is charismatic and contrasts pleasantly with the contemporary amenities of the Hayatabad administrative district.
The historic Old City is the setting for Clock Tower Square, the clocktower itself having being built at the turn of the 20th century, and the Peshawar Museum, which houses a range of Gandharan sculptures and chronicles the region s cultural and natural history. If you fly to Peshawar you can also view the Mahabat Khan Mosque, built in 1630 and renovated in 1989, with its open courtyard and tall minarets. In addition, you will have the opportunity to visit the historic Bala Hisar Fort, which was once a royal residence and offers a fantastic view over the city from the ramparts.
Bacha Khan International Airport (PEW) is located within the city limits of Peshawar and is a 10-minute drive from the city center. Peshawar has a semi-arid climate and temperatures can hit near 100 degrees Fahrenheit in summer. Peshawar is known for its aromatic kahwa green tea and traditional Pashtun cuisine.
