Between the mid-1960s and ‘70s, the bulk of tourists in Pakistan were, in fact, hippies. These hippies would undertake a journey called the ‘Hippie Trail’. It would normally start from London or Amsterdam then progress into Asia via Greece and Turkey. The hippies would journey overland, using public transport or hitchhiking their way through Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran to Pakistan. From Pakistan they would cross the Wagah border to India and proceed to Nepal where the trail would usually end.
