Safari Overview

Cholistan is famous for its camel safaris. Winter is the best season to explore Cholistan. During summer it is very hot. This trip is an excellent combination of adventure and culture enabling you to visit not only some of the most important historical cities of Pakistan but also the remote villages and nomad camps of Cholistan Desert on Camel back. This Desert covers an area of over 16,000 square kilometers extending into the Thar Desert in India.

Explore the color-full bazaars of Bahawalpur and visit its interesting Museum before heading for the desert driving through Lal Suhanra Park, a lovely nature reserve developed in 1972. Arrive at Channan Pir village situated in the Cholistan Desert from where your exciting Camel Safari begins. This village is named after a holy man known as Channan Pir and is famous for the annual URS (death anniversary) during springtime when thousands flock for pilgrimage to the holy man’s grave at this place. Meet your Camels and the Camel men.

For the next three days you will experience the life of the nomads as you travel on Camel back from camp to camp, visiting numerous villages and nomad camps to familiarize yourself with the interesting life style of the Cholistani people. Nights will be spent in tents under open desert skies ideal for star sighting and dinners will be accompanied by local music and dances. The highlight of this safari is the imposing Derawar fort built in the 9th century, where you camp for your last night in the desert after saying farewell to your Camels. Visit the over 100 years old Derawar mosque and the Royal grave yard with its beautifully decorated tombs.

From Derawar drive out of the desert to the historic city of Uch through interesting villages enjoying the local lifestyles and rural landscape. Arrive at Uch that contains some of the most beautiful tombs with blue glazed tile – work reflecting a distinct influence of Central Asian architecture. During the 13th century, it was the center of Islamic learning and many famous scholars and saints lie buried in this small town. Visit the spectacular tomb of Bibi Jawindi with its beautiful glazed tile decorations, the tomb of Jalal-uddin Surkh and explore the colorful covered bazaars before proceeding to Multan, the city of saints. Spend a full day exploring the city of Multan which has a very ancient history and every invader who entered the Indian subcontinent from Alexander through to the Mauryans, Huns, Kushans, Arabs, Ghaznavids, Mughals and even the British struggled for its control
