Asia is Earth's largest and most populous continent

Asia  is Earth's largest and most populous continent, located primarily in the Eastern and Northern Hemispheres. It shares the continental landmass of Eurasia with the continent of Europe and the continental landmass of Afro-Eurasia with both Europe and Africa. Asia covers an area of 44,579,000 square kilometres (17,212,000 sq mi), about 30% of Earth's total land area and 8.7% of the Earth's total surface area. The continent, which has long been home to the majority of the human population,[4] was the site of many of the first civilizations. Asia is notable for not only its overall large size and population, but also dense and large settlements, as well as vast barely populated regions. Its 4.5 billion people (As of September 2018) constitute roughly 60% of the world's population

Pakistan: ancestral voices of the Himalaya

Why Pakistan?

Last Places team of anthropologists and historians visited Pakistan for the first time in 2015. By then Pakistan had experienced a sharp downfall in tourism due to its not-so-great reputation in Western media. In a selfish way we were delighted not to see tourists in most the regions we visited. During that first prospective trip we realised the great potential of that country, mixture of India and Iran, home to the unique Kalash shamanic mountain people, and home to some of the last true nomadic tribes in Asia. Besides our passion for ethnographical encounters, the historical and architectonic heritage is overwhelming. It is a haven for history and art lovers.

With a local Pakistani partner, a former mountain guide, we opened an office in Chitral (base to explore Kalash Valleys and to plunge into the Hindu Kush) and since then we have been offering tailor made trips and ethnographic and historical set departures to the Last Places of Pakistan.
