Chitral, Pakistan

Chitral was a Hindu country before the extension of Islam, and traces of Buddhism are also found here. It is now in Pakistan.

It has always been a very important route for invaders on their way to South Asia, including Alexander the Great and the Mongols. It had been as much needed by USA to hunt down al-Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden.
