The climate in Pakistan
Pakistan is a predominantly dry country. The flat areas in the south and centre have a desert-like climate. May and June are the hottest months, when it is 40 to 45 °C. The best travel period is from December to March, when it is relatively cool. The north of the country is visited by the monsoon in July and August. In a short space of time a lot of rain can fall and there can be heavy storms. The extreme north is home to the high mountains: K2 and Nanga Parbat are two of the highest mountains in the world.
