Gorakh

Gorakh, described by some as nature’s best preserved rock garden, is a high peak (157 m) in the Kirthar range of mountains about 100 km from Dadu. Plans to develop it as the first hill station of Sindh, have been on the anvil and, as a first step, an all weather road is under construction. On way to the top, there are clumps of almonds, pistachios and wild olives as well as aromatic herbs and weeds. The view from the top affords magnificent vistas of the surrounding hills. The peak has a spring in Gaji Bunjo, about a kilometer away from the summit. Gorakh is cool during the day and cold at night. A trip to Gorakh is captivating for trekkers and the local district administration can make arrangements for such tourists in advance.
