    Default My Trip --> Hingol National Park, Nani Mandir, Ormara (600KM)

    My trip to Hingol National Park, Kund Malir, Nani Mandir And Ormara. Almost 600KM on bike.

    The route is perfectly safe and in excellent condition, however you need to carry tool and puncture kit.

    We left early in the morning around 6AM. Had some heavy nashta at nearby hotel as we dont want to stop in between for snakes & etc.

    Seems like a very interesting trip. Btw what was the cost of booking this rest house and how did you book it ? Is it safe to stay here overnight ?

    I booked it for free using some source. A single of this house type contains 3 rooms with attach bath, a kitchen and a dinning table. You can inquire the booking details via Forest department. And yes it perfectly safe.

    There is some army unit adjacent to this rest house. A guard at enterance and some levies checkpost at corner. The rest house is itself a very charming and attractive place. As i mentioned my camera battery out. or i must have captures the whole scenes.

    These a small spot at the back of rest house at the top of mountain with sitting arrangement and that site is killing

    This is pakistan's biggest national and 3 dimensional national park. And its one of the rarest National Parks in the world.

    3 dimensional means you can found Mountains, Plains and water. And its rarest in the world where you can find all three factors together

    Now making our way towards "Nani Mandir" .. The place is said to be evolved around 5000 years ago. Hindus offer thier biggest religious prayers here. Hindus from all around the world gather here and offer their prayers

    On our way to nani mandir. The place is literally full of nature and wild life at its epic. The track is damaged, around 30 KM of dirt and gravel.

    The name of place "Hingol" is said to be evolved from "Hinglaj' .. Which is a hindu goddess and she ruled this place thousands of thousands year ago.. Their are many small shrines on way to "Nani Mandir" .. The place is really very very vacant. You can see nature at its epic.

    We spotted ibex and other natural animals. I really enjoyed riding in this place and i wish i could go there again.

    Thanks for detailed reply. Seems like a really good place to visit. We usually hear only bad news about balochistan so security is the main issue. I guess with army unit and levies checkpost security wont be an issue here. The route seems pretty secure too. I always want to visit hingol but nobody agrees to visit balochistan . Inshallah in the near future will do

    So this is the place. Nani Mandir where hindu offers thier pilgrimage. The place was nicely built. There were some hindu families coming all the way from India. The pandit told that they offer thier biggest religious prayers here in month of April.

    They were making "Halwa" as a prasad

    Its secure till Oramara. So you can enjoy the place till Ormara. There is big navy base in Ormara. Plus there are coast guard units on way till Hingol. So i believe the place is secure to visit..
