Khewra Salt Mine Reviews
At komme ud af Islamabad og se Pakistan lidt mere fra landsiden var en oplevelse. Der er forskel på by og land. Vejen til Khewra er lang - meget lang. 4 timer hver vej - i overkanten til en dagstur.

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.
