Cave City – An ancient place in Pakistan

Cave City is a mountainous region in Balochistan and is situated at a distance of more than 200Kms from Karachi. When I saw the photos captured by one of friend, I asked him to take me there as it is not possible for every person to go there. No one knows the history of this mysterious place so we tried to find the history and started our journey to the Caves of Wonders!

It was a one day trip on a cloudy Sunday morning when we left at 6pm. We stopped for breakfast and then headed towards our destination. We reached around 12 noon.

Highlights

  1. The mountains contains pebbles type rocks
  2. The caves are of small sizes where one can stand and can touch the ceiling
  3. All Caves are on the inner side of the mountains
  4. There a Caves that are interconnected so we called them rooms with attached washrooms 🙂
  5. Water stream are flowing there
  6. Many types of rocks found in very small place
  7. Some mountains had so much moisture that there were hanging water plants on them
