    Author: Samiya Rafiq


    The Sphinx of Baluchistan, an Egypt-like monument is situated along the Makran Coastal Highway near Buzi Pass. The gigantic man made Sphinx in Giza, Egypt is visited by every historybuff with the resources to travel so far simply to admire the remarkable feat of ancient architecture. At the same time, there is a natural landmark in the remote range in Baluchistan region of Pakistan that bears a stark resemblance to the Egyptian Sphinx of Giza.

    Underneath the rocky wonderland, the travelers’attraction continues to grow!

    The more we explore this amazing rocky region, the more we come across the endless variety of specimens, each of them so compelling it feels like an insult not to show each one of them to the world. Especially, in light of the fact that these spots are not popular, it’s a shame that only those who know exactly what they are looking for get to see them – or those who are truly struck with wanderlust.
    Natural phenomenon that leaves you breathless, astonished and bewildered!
    An amazing downy road, the Makran Coastal Highway of Baluchistan bears staggering characteristic rock formations and it’s a joy to watch these as you whiz by. Driving on the coastal highway, a long way from Kund Malir, one would be walloped by the inspiring beauty of the smooth road of Buzi Pass as it snakes its way through the majestic mountains. Sitting on the Buzi Pass coastal highway, you can admire the unfathomable blue water of the Arabian Sea on one side, then turn your head and wonder about the loftiness of great mountains on the other side. When you look at the crests along the beachfront interstate you will smudge the Lion of Baluchistan and the Princess of Hope. A feeling will stir in you to go up to one of the mountains’peak to build a panoramic view of the endless blue water and the mountain chains of Baluchistan. Anyone who wants to experience utter fulfillment of driving on a superb mountain road must drive through the Buzi Pass road.
