Hingol National Park

Introducing Hingol National Park

About 100km southwest of Bela (although best accessed from Sindh via the Makran Coastal Hwy) is the 619, 043-hectare Hingol National Park. The park is on the Hingol River along the SindhBalochistan border and is home to marsh crocodiles, Olive Ridley turtles, leopards, Persian wild goats, hyenas, spot-billed pelicans and the Houbara bustard. Hingol has been identified as an area of global significance for its diverse ecosystems, endangered wildlife and importance as a winter habitat for migratory birds. Next to the park is the pilgrimage centre of Hinglaj, site of a mela (fair) in March/April.

The park is beautiful but very remote, and can only be reached by 4WD via the town of Aghor. You’ll need to be totally self-sufficient, as there are no tourist facilities. Check with the PTDC in Quetta before travelling.
