Top 5 Tourist Attractions You Must Visit in Gwadar!


Pakistan is blessed with a plethora of attractive tourist attractions whether it be high cliff mountains, breathtaking valleys, or the lost monuments of ancient history. All of our provinces comprise a rich cultural heritage, ancient monuments, and spectacular canyons. This higher concentration of tourist attractions in our country has created a relatively higher tourist influx. 

Balochistan, an underdeveloped province of  Pakistan, is considered one of the most attractive destination spots for tourists. The calming atmosphere and soothing aura along with the alluring charm of an unpopulated area are adored by tourists from all over the world. However, owing to the country’s sliding stability and unfortunate history, Balochistan is yet to realize its true potential.  

 Several initiatives have been taken by the Government of Pakistan in collaboration with the Chinese Government. The past decade has proved to be a game-changer for the remote province of Balochistan. Thankfully, over the course of years, Balochistan got recognized for its beauty and strategic importance like other provinces of Pakistan. 

The smart port city of Gwadar in Balochistan is a recently discovered treasure that is located on the southwestern coast of Pakistan. Gwadar is all set to become the largest city of Pakistan as it’s the flagship project under CPEC. However, there are a plethora of other factors that make Gwadar an investment priority. And one of the biggest reasons is the intoxicating beaches in Gwadar that spellbound tourists around the world. 

Investors are fully intended to build luxurious beach resorts, theme parks, floating restaurants, or other amenity-rich recreational projects on the beaches of Gwadar. Moreover, there are a lot of mysterious and exciting destinations in the city for travelers to marvel at. 

Hingol National Park

On top of the list lies Hingol National Park or Hungol National Park, it is the largest national park in Pakistan, located in the Makran coastal region. This historic park acquired its name from the southern side of the Hingol River, which flows along the shores of the Arabian Sea. Also, the river is home to plenty of waterfowl and marine life.

Hingol National Park covers an area of 6,100 sq. kilometers and is known to support at least 35 species of mammals, 65 species of amphibians and reptiles, and 185 species of birds. Both the Princess of Hope and the Great Sphinx of Balochistan lie on the boundary of Hingul national Park. All in all, this park is a treat for adventure maniacs. 

The Mysterious Princess of Hope

Princess of Hope is a naturally shaped monument that is crafted like a princess. The statue manifests a princess looking beyond the horizon. The surrounding environment constituting mountains and gorges of rock and mud presents an alluring aura. 

The statue is located at the Hingol National Park in the Lasbela district of Balochistan. This nature-made rock acquired its name from renowned Bollywood actress Angelina Julie, during her visit to Pakistan in 2002. 

The Peculiar Sphinx

The Sphinx of Balochistan came into limelight in 2004 when the Makran Coastal Highway was opened for public transport. Like the Princess of Hope, Sphinx is also a naturally made rock formation. As it’s nature-made it’s not as intricately carved as the ones in Egypt, however, owing to its peculiar origin it is still worth visiting and exploring. 

Baba Chandrakup

Baba Chandrakup is an active mud volcano located near Hingol National Park. The volcano is symbolized as a divine sanctuary in the Hindu Culture. The muddy volcano is worshipped as an exemplification of the God Shiva. Moreover, the volcano is also an important stop for pioneers on their way to the Holy place of Shri Hinglaj Mata Sanctuary. 

Astola Island

Astola Island, also known as Jezira Haft Talar Satadip which is translated as Island of the Seven Hills, is a small deserted island located near the coast of the Arabian Sea in Gwadar, Pakistan. The mysterious island is manifested as a mystifying secret of calmness and eternal beauty.
