Dhana Sar Kacha
Located in in the province of Balochistan in Pakistan, the Dhana Sar gorges, also called Pakka Dhana, is an awe inspiring river canyon, pretty long and deep. It was formed by the Karher River.
The road going within the gorges is called N50, also known as Zhob-D I Khan highway, a main road linking D. I. Khan and Zoab (former Fort Sandeman). The road within the Suleiman Range is asphalted but pretty narrow. The road was completed in 1905. It’s often underwater and severely damaged by rain and landslides and can be closed anytime. It leads into the narrow gorge which has magnificent mountain scenery with a foaming white hill torrent running alongside it.
During and after a storm the road may be impassable. Expect a cliff road with simple stone protections and a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet). As one turns in, one see gorges of pristine beauty with road treacherous as it seem, zigzags beneath the towering stone walls, with the river flowing along side it.
