  • Excellent place for picnic. One advice that you should bring food from home. There a nice covered area to eat.
  • I would not mention the history of this place here because it could break the suspence of you. Just wanna say this place is awesome. If you wanna go here than cooke and take food with you. Because the food of that area is not very well.
  • A beautiful educational informative place to visit especially with growing children since its part of the educational syllabi of the primary and higher educational curriculum. Kids enjoyed the most.
  • One of the biggest salt mines in the world... Specifically the second biggest salt mine in the world after Goderich, Ontario in Canada.. It is said to have been discovered by the horses of Alexander the great... The fastest way to reach there is thorough motorway M2. The mines are located 30km east of Lilla interchange towards Pind Dadan Khan. Road signs are quite visible too...
  • Excellent natural place to visit...
