Introducing Dera Ghazi Khan (Dg Khan)
DG Khan is of little interest to travellers except as a transit stop before Dera Ismail Khan or Balochistan. Originally on the bank of the Indus, DG Khan was destroyed by flooding in 1911 and rebuilt 15km away on the present site. If you’re stuck here for a few hours there are several interesting tombs on the outskirts of town.
At the time of research, due to security concerns, a curfew was in force for DG Khan and surrounding areas. Accordingly, foreigners were not allowed to stay in DG without permission from the Interior Ministry in Islamabad. We also heard from travellers who had been given free rides by the local constabulary to move them on from the town. It is best to check with locals and the PTDC in Multan before travelling.
