Darwaish

Nah, this isn’t Grand Canyon and this can’t be some sort of copy of Statue of Liberty either. No torch, you see. So let’s see how many of you can guess what is this thing and exactly where? I am sure many readers would be surprised to know how this thing got its name. Happy guessing :)

    AO: Yes it is the same one. I actually gave offroadpakistan.com link in my comment above. Some of your pictures are stunning really, nice work :). Is it possible for you to share some information about Aghore Tower? and some pictures too? We would love to hear from you.

    I do not know if that is the same sleeping beauty that you refer to as near Quetta, but very close to the Princes of Hope formation, by the Hingol River, one can make out the sillohette of another Sleeping Beauty. This can be seen after dusk, facing north from Aghore Camp (on the east bank of the Hingol River).

    For more information on the Hingol area, see the Hingol FAQ [http://offroadpakistan.com/places/the_hingol_faq.html]

    In Baloochistan on the winding and at times trecherous road from Sui to Dera Bugti we have something similar on a hilltop similar to the aforementioned wind carving.

    I was told that it is the face of a lad and is known as Thear Choro.

    It seems like the Princess of Hope has a Bugti soul mate.

    I fear our princess might meet the fate of Bamiyan Budhas or the Bodhi Tree of Islamabad before nature takes starts taking its toll.

    Darwaish, the ‘iblees’ title made me laugh :)
