Save the site
I was fascinated by the account given in the article ‘An Ancient Cave City’ as I never thought that the mountains of Balochistan would have such treasures hidden in them. If ever got a chance, I would definitely visit the site. What I find deplorable, however, is that the ancient caves of Gondrani are not receiving the care and attention that they deserve. Had they been in any other country, the government there would have converted them into a highly sought after tourist site by taking steps to preserve their historical value. The government of Pakistan can also do it. All it has to do is hire the services of archeological expert to preserve the site, build a few rest houses in the area and connect the caves to the Karachi-Quetta Highway through a proper road. Responsibility also lies on the shoulders of the Balochistan government to ensure peace in the area. If these steps are taken, I am sure hundreds of tourists will visit the site every year.
