Kirthar National Park:
This park may be
visited for recreation education or research but shooting is forbidden.
A four hour drive north- east from Karachi, of the Super Highway (for
4 WD vehicles only) takes the visitor deep into the heart of Kirthar National
Park, again preserve measuring over 3,000 square kilometers in the Kirthar
hills and a good destination for 3 day trip if the bandits are brought
under control. October to February is the most comfortable...that is,
coolest...time to go but the flowers bloom during the (relatively) wet
monsoon in August.
