Gorakh Hill Travel Guide

Pakistan is gifted with limitless beauty, having numerous tourism hotspots in its northern regions. The current improvement in the tourist sector, on the other hand, has resulted in an increase in tourism in the country's southern regions, with most visitors from Karachi travelling to either Balochistan and its coastal strip or interior Sindh. Gorakh Hill Station, commonly known as the "Murree of Sindh," is a popular tourist destination in Sindh, located near the Kirthar Mountain Range.

Gorakh Hill Station, located 94 kilometres from Dadu and offering mesmerising vistas and magnificent sunsets, is located at an elevation of almost 6,000 feet above sea level. Before we go into our Gorakh Hill travel guide, let's learn more about this beautiful tourist spot in Sindh.

 

MYTH ABOUT GORAKH HILL

Few believe that there is a place in the province of Sindh, Pakistan that is too cold to welcome snow every year. Interestingly this is just one of a myth among many about “Gorakh Hill. The traveler’s community compares this place with Murree calling it a Murree of Sindh which is truly unjust. The place has its charm and offers a magical landscape. Gorakh Hill Station, located at an altitude of more than 5,600 feet in the Kirthar Mountains and roughly 95 kilometers from Dadu city, is a sight for sore eyes for the people of Karachi. The name Gorakh is derived from the Brahvi language in which, the word “Gurgh” is used for ‘wolf’ and is adopted from Balochi language word “Gurkh”, which has a similar meaning.

 

PLANNING YOUR TRIP TO GORAKH HILL

Gorakh Hill Station maintains temperatures below 20°C in the summer and can even see snowfall during the peak winter season due to its high elevation. As a result, you may visit the site at any time of year, but winter temperatures might drop below 5°C. The travel may be somewhat comfortable if you plan ahead of time and bring only the minimum necessities with you.

 

WHAT TO PACK FOR YOUR TRIP?

Here’s a list of essentials that you should not travel without on this exciting journey:

  • Waterproof jackets
  • Flashlights
  • Extra batteries
  • A spare T-shirt
  • Joggers/trekking boots
  • Gloves
  • Sweaters
  • Woollen socks
  • Shawls and stoles
  • Sun-glasses
  • Sanitizer/soap/hand wash lotion
  • Toothpaste, toothbrush, and wet wipes
  • Cap/beanie
  • Water bottle
  • Light blanket

The chilly weather at the top of the hill is indeed killing and one can’t survive if went without proper arrangements. The place is best for the ones who love to watch the sparkling stars. Moreover, the jeep ride that is somehow necessary due to the terrain adds another adventure to your visit. The hill has some resorts that have rooms which you should rent in advance as the spot is quite populated mostly in winter. Camping setups are also available which I believe is the best choice to live the Gorakh hill. Add it to your bucket list and don’t forget to say me thanks
