The biggest question which arises in the minds of people while thinking about the visit of Kund Malir is the security situation of the area. But don’t worry about security, the army and security forces have good arrangements for the tourists according to the people who have visited the area.
Almost every few kilometers there are checkpoints of army, navy or coast guards which boosts the moral of the visitors assuring them their safety.
To conclude there are many check posts where security forces check all the travelers and make sure that nothing could happen to any of the traveler or tourist.
Restaurants and Hotels:
There was a lack of facilities of hotels and restaurants in the area. But in recent years few hotels, resorts and huts have appeared on the spot including few state-of-the-art restaurants.
If you want to stay there you will get some decent guest house or rest house at reasonable prices but booking a room in advance is preferable. The charges are still affordable as the numbers of visitors are still limited.
Lack of facilities was one of the reasons that families avoided planning holidays in Kund Malir or Hingol National Park which is now changing.
Tour operators usually arrange their own food but families or people who travel on their own are not usually satisfied with the quality of food. This may be the reason why most travel agencies carry all the food either from Karachi or purchase in Winder, a small city on Makran coastal highway.
The weather condition on the beach is usually good except some months during summer. As the weather condition is not so different as compared to Karachi weather people feel comfortable but make sure that you don’t visit the beach when the weather is too hot.
But the temperature is mostly hot there as in the summer months the weather lies between 30°C to 35°C, while in winter the nights are quite cold. That’s why most travel operators prefer night trips in summer while day trips during winter.
