Living in Pakistan

Teaching in Pakistan is a great opportunity for teachers looking to make a difference. With a history tracing back to early human origins, and a terrain that is as geographically varied as any on earth, Pakistan is beautiful and complex. The country has historically suffered as a result of political instability, and foreigners are advised to use caution when traveling; however, many of the expats who live in Pakistan warm to the country after experiencing its generous hospitality and striking environment.
Expat communities in the major cities of Pakistan are relatively small but close-knit. For adventurous travelers, Pakistan is home to incredible scenery and some of the world’s tallest mountains, including K2 – considered by many to be even more difficult to climb than Everest.
