National Parks, Pakistan: 6 reviews and 5 photos

  A female Chinkara Gazelle
by Faiza-Ifrah

Lal Suhanra National Park is located 60 miles (100 Kms) from Multan towards Bahawalnagar in the Punjab.

It has 3 eco-systems - desert, lake and marshes and grassland. It is the habitat of Blackbucks, Nil Gai (Blue Cow), water fowls, Indian Rhinosaurus, Chinkara Gazzelle like the one here (a female, see a male in the wildlife travelogue), etc. This is also home to 480 Black Bucks, easily the most beautiful of antelopes and of lions that can be watched through a lion safari.

Information on the park can be had from WWF Pakistan or Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation.

The park has a good restaurant by the name of 'Whispering Hills'. Boating facilities are available on site.

However, this national park may come as a disappointment for avid national park lovers for its more like an expanded zoological garden. The best thing is to treat it as a base camp for moving into the deserts of Cholistan towards East, seeing desert forts, anciant ruins and life of Cholistani nomads, who remind you of olden times.

If you happen to be with Cholistani folks, then watch the special hairdo of floral patterns on their camels.
