I remember an official trip from Quetta to Kharan back in Jan, 2005. That trip was no fun.
Right after I left Quetta, there were only hell dry mountains on both sides. 7 hours of watching those dry barren mountains made me extremely uncomfortable.
Only when we reached Kharan, I saw some water and some greenery. Even while we were landing at Quetta, I could only see a very dry city from the plane.
These photos of Balochistan are quite different from what I would have expected. Pakistan is definitely the most beautiful country on earth.
