They say one picture is worth a thousand words. A large majority around the globe don’t really understand how beautiful Pakistan really is. This year, The Express Tribune, with the help of its supremely talented readers and Instagrammers held a competition to give the world a tiny glimpse into the Pakistan they don't know about.

Photographers from all over Pakistan took some of the most breathtaking pictures and used the hashtag #ETBESTOF2017 to enter the competition. While all our entries were phenomenal, due to space constraints we are producing 20 of the most-liked photos here:

1. Majestic View of snow clad mountains from Ayubia National Park, Muree.
