Family Vacation | Hingol National Park | Hungol National Park | ہنگول نیشنل پارک
Hingol National Park or Hungol National Park ہنگول نیشنل پارک is the largest national park in Pakistan, located in the Makran coastal region. The park covers an area of about 6,100 square kilometres (2,400 sq mi) and is located 190 km from Karachi in the three districts of Gwadar, Lasbela and Awaran in Balochistan. Hingol was declared a national park in 1988.
The park is named after the southern part of the Hangul River which flows along the shores of the Arabian Sea and is home to large numbers of waterfowl and marine life. Hangul National Park contains six distinct ecosystems as well as both desert and plains regions, making it especially unique among the Pakistan's national parks.
The park is bordered by a dense forest to the north, a barren mountain range to the south, and the Hangul River tributary, which is home to thousands of migratory birds and swamp crocodiles. The Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea are also to the south.
Unique rock formations draw tourists from all over the country, especially since the completion of the Makran Coastal Highway in 2004.
