(added few years ago!)

Zarghoon mountain range lies in the North East of the capital city of Balochistan province, Quetta.  The highest peak in the Zarghoon range is Loy Saar Naikan at 3,758 meters which also makes it the highest peak of Balochistan as well. 

Zarghoon range offers plenty of attractions for outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seekers. Depending on the preference one can find trails suitable enough for short weekend hike as well as serious treks which could be extended to days. The terrain and landscape has also remarkable variation ranging from rocky arid to relatively greener Juniper forest. These trails can be accessed from various places but the preferred route is through Urak valley, which itself is a popular destination among visitors. Some local contact or guide is recommended before attempting any of the trails as these are not well maintained trails and usually used by local herdsmen.
