  • Most of us do not know the beauty of balochistan. Balochistan has such great and beautiful places that put you in doubt that whether you are really in pakistan or not.
    But unfortunately none of these spots is developed for tourists. Some dont even exist on google maps.
    1.15 billion rupees is a very low amount for developing tourist spots.
