Hingol National Park
Lasbela District, Pakistan
Lunar landscape, a mud volcano and bizarre rock formations.
Sphinx-like rock formation
The Hingol National Park is situated in Pakistan’s troubled southwestern province of Baluchestan. It is mostly famous for the Makran Coastal Highway, which snakes across an inhospitable lunar landscape and passes several bizarre rock formations, most notably a rock resembling the Sphinx of Giza and the so-called Princess of Hope, a rock formation in the shape of a human being on a rocky outcrop.
Another important feature of the national park is a mud volcano, the only one in South Asia and at the same time the highest located mud volcano in the world. Its geological features aside, the 1650 square kilometers park is also an important habitat for Ibex, Gazelles, Urials and a large number of bird species.
