Last night we came from “Sindh Rani” Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Mazar to Dadu. It was the long route and very hot day, when we reached Dadu. It was very hot there, it felt like, we in fire and skin is burning. After one to two hours just felt that AC is working, and the room temperature is going down. We got good rest and get early in the morning after having breakfast. We left Hotel at 6:00 am for Gorakh Hill station via Johi and Wahi Pandhi.

It was the summer, so the normal temperature was near to 45c. We stopped different spots just for using the washroom and get some cold drinks, because the warm wind and high temperature hit us hard. We continued our journey and reached at Wahi Pandhi via Johi road. After having a cup of tea moved towards Gorakh Hill, local peoples said that it is not possible to go there by car, but we moved by car to one other stop Bozdar Abad Restaurant which is about on one-hour drive by car. We stayed there for two hours just enjoyed the beautiful views of Kerthar Mountain Ranges.

A coldest Point in The Hottest Area

And as we finally arrived at the Gorakh hill; it was quite sunny weather; the cool breeze was breezing, and the sun was not much heating. Everything seems to be wonderful and the view from the top of the hill was so lovely and mesmerizing. That was quite a peaceful place and luckily was not crowded at that time so, we easily enjoyed visiting and exploring the whole place. But yeah, a tragedy also occurs with me was that I realized, my cam’s battery was completely dead, and I was unable to capture those moments for my memory.

The place was quite a big place, so it took a long time to explore it completely. Small shops were found on every spot which has all of the food items or snacks, and Many plants were also planted there which makes that place look more attractive. On the other hand, there was a guide too, which helped us to know more about the place.

Local Peoples of Gorakh Hill

The tent was already booked, just stayed a few minutes in the tent moved to explore the beauty of the coldest place of the hottest area of Sindh. I was some settlement of local peoples of that area, I just moves to them and tried to talk with them.

A woman welcomed me and asked that where are your from and what have you seen here on Gorakh Hill? I said, I belong to the Thar Desert and it is a mountain, so I am enjoying here a moment and every step of the visit. I just asked how is your life here? She said, they are living a very tough and hard life, now they are here and when winter will start, and temperature will go down they will migrate to lowlands areas they will stay there till the end of winter. I also saw the donkeys that were so healthy than the donkey I saw in the Thar Desert.

Hiking and Sunset

There is a beautiful track on the top of the mountain. We walked through and enjoyed the beautiful valley and ranges of kherthar mountain. The route was amazing, we went to the west top point and then moved down and then upside the mountain. Where we enjoyed the hiking and we stayed there till sunset. It was an amazing time and the scene was bewildering during sunset. We captured the beautiful moments of our family visit and return to our tent.

I was so interested to stay there and enjoy the bonfire and nightlife and explore the voice of wild animals in the silence of mountains. But my mother said we should have to move back. So, we moved without capturing the beautiful moments if the sun rising from Gorakh Hill. The visiting Gorakh Hill, a coldest point of the hottest area was an amazing and great experience and truly stunning trip.
