Hingol National Park of Balochistan

The Baluchistan is the one of the largest province of Pakistan with a land of 347056 square kilometer while covering about 40% of the country’s majority land. The province tracks its history from ancient immemorial period. It had done trade and commerce with old civilization of Babylon via Iran and inside the valleys of Euphrates and Tigris before the birth of Christ. The Great Alexander also had a conflict with the Baluchistan’s Serbia Tribe.
Mehmood Ghaznavi and Muhammad Bin Qasim also conquered Baluchistan concluding in the establishment of Muslim Repute. Even though, the people belonging to tribal areas have immense similarity with Arabs. For anthropologists, it can be quite a captivating theme of study.

House of the spirits"Cave City of Balochsitan"

Cave City of Balochsitan
About all I knew when I set out to visit the Cave City was that there is a place in Balochistan with cave houses — a mountain, isolated from civilisation, with lots and lots of caves. Returning by road from Quetta to Karachi, I was struck with the realisation that the Cave City was likely to be somewhere along the route my companion and I were taking. Despite the fact that I had no concrete information about the site, the curiosity of exploring the caves got the better of me. I called my father who had spent more than a decade in Balochistan for infrastructure work. He gave us rough directions, telling us that it was located close to the city of Bela and was called Gondrani. Armed with only that tidbit of information — and a few snapshots from a travelogue Salman Rashid had written on the Cave City years back — we set off.
