Himalayan Ibex (Capra ibex sibirica) is symbol of arid and rocky mountain of Karakoram, Hindukush and Himalayas of Gilgit-Baltistan. The males have heavy body, large horns, long bears and females are small body small horns. Its presence in its natural habitat is essential to maintain healthy ecosystem. If there is something characteristic about hunters is how privileged we are for having the opportunity to explore remote territories, places which most human beings will hardly ever visit or even knowing where to locate it on a map, whether it is a small village in the mountains or a country like the one we will be talking about on today’s blog. This allows us to disprove the secrets and false statements which are many times said about certain destinations. The lack of accurate information or, in other words, the misinformation that we are used to so often through the different media channels, creates a completely wrong perception of what Pakistan is today. During our hunt in “the land in which the pure abound” -the literal translation of what Pakistan means both in Urdu and Persian- we have been able to come across one of the friendliest countries that we have ever been to, leaving aside any sense of unjustified hostility. People are amongst the most hospitable, grinning, cheerful, well educated, and professional that we have ever seen. In school, both boys and girls share classrooms and play soccer together at 10,800 feet high. Women would go out of their homes with a smile on their faces asking to take pictures with the trophies and no one cares about political conflicts, prevailing a total admiration toward hunters and the desire to progress as a community.
