  • Beautiful place, enjoy mountains view, do bring your own camp, food and winter clothes and never rely on debit card cash only.. hotel is at top with all basic facilities.. its too risky to take your own car to go top hire jeep at wai petrol pump.. better to stay night enjoy the sunset and sunrise at 8000 ft higher then sea level..
  • It was a great experience. Benazir view point was a breath taking moment.
  • Best place to visit for travelers. high mountain, very beautiful
  • Best hill station in province Sindh, Pakistan. The only place of sindh where you can enjoy snow fall in winters. It is near Dadu City. However you should confirm first about the law and order situation before visiting the place.
  • I would recommend you all to visit there once in a life.
