  • To get out of Islamabad and view Pakistan a little more from the landward side was an experience. There is a difference between city and country. The road to Khewra is long-very long 4 hours each way-in over the border for a day trip. However, choose to ignore this in my evaluation. Mine is worth a visit. We took the little train up in the mine and got a guided tour around. The wizard explains well on hinglish but would like to share his knowledge with us. Thank you very much for it.
