Jackson Hole: As nice as Abbottabad?

By
Commercial Real Estate Agent with Contour Investment Properties

Grand Tetons in WinterWhat do Abbottabad, Pakistan and Jackson Hole, Wyoming have in common?

A. Home to wealthy second homeowners

B. Beautiful mountain setting with wildlife, wild rivers, and wild nightlife

C. Politically tolerant haven in a conservative stronghold

From the Yahoo News story about Abbottabad:

"Abbottabad  is a mountain city of approximately 120,000 people in the northern region of Pakistan. It has a reputation for greater tolerance than many other cities in the conservative northern region—largely because it has been home to many foreigners and outsiders over the years. It is a retirement town known for protecting the privacy of its wealthier inhabitants—the Jackson Hole of Pakistan, to put it in American terms."

Well, they say any press is good press, so I guess I won't complain. But for my money, Jackson Hole is home!

Now there's a comparison I would not have expected to find!  I've never been to Abbottabad, but seriously doubt it has Jackson's charm!  What a funny Yahoo find!

Brenda - you remember all those times the national press reported that Dick Cheney was vacationing in "an undisclosed location"? He was here. Perhaps Yahoo was making a snide comparison...

Jackson Hole gets my vote too!  I love the snow capped mountains.  That almost looks like a painting instead of a photo---just so perfect!  So is this dog I am seeing a black German Shepard?  He/she is gorgeous!

How gorgeous!

Jackson Hole looks very attractive, Abbottabad not so much but neither looks like home to me. Both look foreign to me from my perspective.

I know during all the news coverage I kept thinking and saying how ugly the home and area looked to me.

Hi Judi, I've never been to Pakistan, but I've trekked through Nepal, and those mountains make the Tetons look like foothills! But comparing Abbottabad to Jackson Hole seems like a stretch...

Pat - Yep, that's my 10 year old German Shepherd, Coona. Biggest ears in Jackson, I think.

Maureen - When things get too hectic, I go outside and remember why I'm here. Never fails to calm me down.

I am from Pakistan and have been to Abbotabad for so many place. Abbotabad is a cool, calm  place. It's base station for many beautiful hill stations in Pakistan Like Shhogran, Naran, Kaghan, Sri and Paye (Shoogran) Lalazar and many more in the north like Fairy Meadows, Nanga Perbat, K-2 (2nd highest mountain in the world) and towards Hunza and Baltistan region. And I advice all those who are found of visiting natural beauty, that you should come to Pakistan (just One Sawat is dangerous due to militancy). all other requins are beautiful. Please search on goole for flowwing distincton on Pakistan

  1. Karaokram Highway
  2. Baltro Glacier,
  3. Shoogran
  4. Kaghan and Naran Vellays
  5. Tear (aansoo ) Lake
  6. Deosai Plains
  7. Khunjrab Pass
  8. Gilgit and Sakardoo
  9. Rani fort and Sindh Wall (sindh wall is similar to China Wall and is part of World's Largest Fort by Area.
  10. Trango Towers Pakistan.
  11. Fairy Meadows.
  12. Nanga Perbat
  13. Hunza Vellay
  14. Satpara Lake
  15. Saif ul Malook Lake
  16. Kel area Kashmir Pakistan
  17. Leepa Vellay
  18. Darawarr Fort
  19. Cahnder Gup (World Largest Mud valcano (LIVE) )
  20. Islamabad
  21. Lahore  

These are those places which are totaly safe for journy.
