Visa, Pakistan

Hi! I want to make a travel by land around Iran, Pakistan and India. I need to know for how many time is the Pakistan Visa.
For my travel, I need a 6 months visa because I´m going to stay 1 month in Turkey, 2 month in Iran, and 1 or 2 in Pakistan.
It will be great if someone tell me his experience.

Karachi - recommendations and safety of visit?

Hello,

We're considering a stop in Karachi on our way to Lahore (all by flight).

Is it safe to walk about the city a bit? Any suggestions on neighborhoods to visit and NOT visit. Also any suggestions on where to stay?
