Hingol National Park Balochistan


Hingol National Park or Hungol National Park in Balochistan province of Pakitsan, covers an area of 6,100 square kilometers (2,400 sq mi). It was established in 1988. In 2004, the Makran Coastal Highway which links Karachi with the port town of Gwadar was opened.


Hingol National Park is along the Makran coast in southwestern Balochistan Province, southwestern Pakistan. It lies within sections of Lasbela District, Gwadar District, and Awaran District. The Gulf of Oman of the Arabian Sea is to the south. The provincial capital of Quetta is approximately 717 km. The provincial capital of Sindh is 190 km to the southeast on the coast.

Hingol National Park also includes famous Kund Malir Beach and Princess of Hope. In the past due to the political situation, people didn’t prefer to go there. But now things have changed and many people go to Kund Malir on weekends from Karachi and other areas of Sindh to explore the beach.

Topographical features

Hingol National Park contains a variety of topographical features and habitats, varying from the arid subtropical forest in the north to arid montane in the west. Large areas of the park are covered with drift sand and can be classified as coastal semi-desert. The park includes the estuary of the Hungol River which supports a significant diversity of bird and fish species

Hingol National Park is known to support at least 35 species of mammals, 65 species of amphibians and reptiles, and 185 species of birds. The park forms an excellent habitat to wild Sindh ibex, Baluchistan urial, and chinkara gazelle. Ibex is found in all steep mountain ranges and are numerous in the Hinglaj and Rodani Kacho Mountain areas.

Moreover, astonishing rock formations make it a paradise for those who desire natural beauty. One unique rock formation in the park includes the Princess of hope whose special name was given by none other than the great Angelina Jolie of Hollywood fame, mesmerized by her very first look at it. The unique formation of this rock ensures that it has the potential to rival the Sphinx of Giza; if only our policymakers knew how to market tourism well.
