Nature explorers are not easy to satisfy. They look for the extraordinary in every destination, be it a desert, a jungle, the mountain range or the beach. Fortunately, Pakistan has a rich natural heritage that never ceases to amaze you.
The only problem true travel enthusiasts face is accessibility. Sometimes the journey is too costly, sometimes the infrastructure is missing. And when it comes to Baluchistan, most people think the law and order situation is perpetually unstable.
Despite all this, I found a place that is neither expensive nor ordinary. Thanks to 0km Tour Planners for taking me on a trip to Ormara, which is 278kms from Gwadar and 348kms from Karachi.
The beach is immaculate and has not received the limelight it deserves. Surrounded by mountains, the crystal clear water here transitions from light to the darkest blue, eventually meeting the sky at the horizon. It is what any nature explorer would dream of!
In Pakistan, not many cities have beaches. Karachi is one of the luckiest but unfortunately, most of the beaches here haven’t been maintained in ages. They’re dirty, smelly and definitely not worth diving in. The ones that are any good have been occupied by our forces. So if you’re hoping to dive into cool waters to experience every moment of your life, you should definitely head over to Ormara.
For adventure seekers and nature lovers, this place is a complete package. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this beautiful piece of land comprises of sand of various shades and mountains of white and brown limestone. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot some of the frequent fishermen too. As of date, this area remains unexplored for its tourism potential.
The best part about Omara is that it isn’t just about the beach. A short distance from the waters, you can find trek routes for safe hiking. So it is basically a two-in-one package. The sunset looks particularly beautiful from the top of these mountains, gradually losing sight to the endless stretch of the Arabian Sea. The white and brown colored limestone mountains are safe for beginners. If you’re hoping to experience something different in life or to conquer your fear of heights and hiking, this is the place to be.
The development of Makran Coastal Highway and tightened security throughout the area has made the place accessible and safe. The undervalued beach has the potential to give tough competition to Kund Malir and other adjacent areas. Just dive in to experience clear waters and the sea life beneath the shades of water. Don’t miss it!
As per my folks at 0km, the pioneers of Unveiling Baluchistan, it’s an ideal place for “Sasti & Achi Tafri”.
