  • Peaceful place with beautiful scenery and chances to spot ibex, leopards & crocodiles. And numerous different species of birds. Peaceful and serene.
  • I wonder if really such a heavenly place in Pakistan exists? It offers such a beauty, calm and silence at the same time along with mighty ocean on the other sides. One can see desert, mountains and sea at the same time. And mountains, they are like sculptures made by God’s own hands.
