Exploring the potential destinations of Thatta

February 15, 2019
I have always wanted to unravel the mysteries that Thatta holds within its ancient soil. Historically, it is the most significant province of Pakistan, and THAT became the source of my interest! I also got an opportunity to sail through the ancient world of Thatta. What exactly is so mysterious about Thatta? – Its some of the largest lakes of the world – Its the heritage of Sufism in the air – Its the debris of the old ostentatious civilizations   Lakes Everybody knows about the Indus river that flows all the way from North of Pakistan through Sindh to Arabain Sea. But besides the river; Do you know how many lakes are there in Sindh? The answer is many. Though, I could cover only 2, sadly! Haleji Lake 96.1 km away from Karachi It is a very pleasant lake. The only black spot in the destination is the number of plastic bottles and bags dumped there. Besides that, its a must visit lake and also not so far from Karachi. But.. Beware, swimming is not recommended there, Crocodiles you know!🤷‍♀ Keenjhar Lake 122 km away from Karachi Spread over the area of 135 km square Ahh! Going there was such a delight that everybody deserves to taste. The serene air and blue clean water; God who can resist drowning in there? Ps. Don’t drown just swim for an hour and let the sun shine upon you. There is a mystery about the lake that cannot be over- looked and that is, the islands in the lake!. BUT wait.. what about the islands? Trust me there are 2 solid tombs in 2 separate islands. If you have the quest of adventure just like i have, you will definitely pack up your things immediately and reach out to isolated tombs to be exlored! (Make it a night stay, you wont regret) Makli It is one one largest site of necropolis in the world I know it is not a very good idea to hang out with the dead or take an afternoon walk with them, among 1 MILLION Sepulcher. There is something hypnotic about the architectonics of the Sepulchres that you feel completely lost there! So, pack your stuff right now and get ready to witness all of this!

Water in the desert

February 12, 2019
Balochistan? What comes into your mind when you hear this word, Balochistan? The biggest province of Pakistan or the most remote and violent province of Pakistan? These were my thoughts a few years ago until it all changed. When I heard that we were going to spend five days of winter vacations in the remote sites of Balochistan, it blew my mind. Is Balochistan even a place for tourism as compare to what beauty we have in the north of Pakistan. What beauty lies in the desert? It was a long ride from Karachi to Quetta, however, Quetta was not our destiny. Our aim was to dive into the heart of this enormous desert. Ahead of Ziarat, a fathomless desert awaited us. It was actually nothing as compare to what I had seen in Northern areas because it was a distinctive exceptional wonderland. Brown and barren mountains stood so high and proud. Sun was scorching and yet the breeze was chilly and penetrating in veins. There were no roads so the jeep just kept swinging throughout the journey and our gaze kept searching for that one thing we “Karachi Waaley” consider most scenic; water! Yes, we Karachi Waaley love water, sea, waterfall, lake, river in short anything that includes crystal blue water is a picnic point. However, since it was the end of December, few ponds and lakes that they had were dried up. We wandered for hours and travelled far ahead of Harnai to coal mines and all the workers in the mines started gathering around us because they never thought that there place was beautiful enough to attract tourists. Anyway, lets keep it to the search of water because we wandered for two days and finally decided to get back to Quetta. On our way back from Ziarat, the local driver stopped the car in the middle of nowhere and asked us to step out. After getting out of the car, we saw many stairs craved into a mountain. Take it from me, the place was so deserted that not a single human being was there. The only sound was of the wind gushing. Driver asked us to climb those stairs, because he wanted us to explore something and what else did we need? Exploring is what we live for. After climbing like 200 stairs we reached to the top and there it was! The most beautiful and bluest lake I had ever seen. We were just enchanted by the calmness and charm that lake held. I don’t remember how long we stayed there but I can still picture how captivated we were. Now, I know Balochistan is all dangerous and gloomy (not talking about coast line) but at least once travelers should go to that part and if you happen to visit Ziarat, do visit this “unnamed” lake which will be waiting just as calmly for you.

Rejoicing on ruins

February 12, 2019
Did you ever want to be in a creepy place? A place deserted by its inhabitants two thousand years ago without the trace of how all of them vanished into thin air? People, what I am talking about is a place called “Mohen Jodaro” in Larkana district which literally translates to “A mountain of dead”. And if that is not what might creep you out about that place, let me tell you that the walls you are seeing in this very picture were built by people who vanished two thousand years ago which makes these walls, well too ancient. Now, you might have come across with this name because of that the movie and how at the end a flood swept the whole city but of course hero ended up saving the whole civilization. However, this adaptation is not even close to what happened there because in reality no one survived to tell the tale of this unfortunate city. According to history, the city was the most developed area of its time and citizens lived in a double story house with heaters similar to this time. Their sewage system was so advanced that all the pipes were sealed and directly leading to their dumping place. People, I am talking about a civilization which existed in this very area of Sindh where even now all the gutters are blowing and if you have ever been to interior Sindh, then you must have seen their filthy sewage system. When I got a chance to visit this famous place, I could not turn down the offer. The place was huge, ruins of the houses that were homes to families centuries ago. There was a public pool as well which is said to be the first ever pool in our history. The museum was filled with pots, jewelries, toys and crockeries discovered in the area. There were scriptures on the display, written in a language which is to this date not deciphered. There were many tourists wandering around like this creepy place is not effecting them all but it bothered me a lot. How was everyone just calmly walking as if it was a public park? I have been to many places but what I felt there was nothing I ever felt before. The breezes were so dead and not a single bird or animal could be seen. I am pretty sure that the city like “Mohenjodaro” did not know they will vanish into thin air. The bazars they walk in everyday would be erased from earth, the home they lock every night to keep them safe from intruders; will be a tourist site welcoming people to guess the tale of the unfortunate inhabitants. They never could have guessed that history will not even know the actual name of the city and instead this place would be called “A mountain of dead”. I could not help but wonder that isn’t this what world is like? After few thousand years we will also perish and
