Attock Khurd And River Indus

First day in Kamra, I go to Attack Khurd, which is like 30 minutes drive from Kamra. It is a beautiful place which has an old railway station and a bridge surrounded in mountains. Bridge is on river Indus and it gives a very eye catching view.Bridge is built in 1800 and quite active and used for trains till now. Earlier it was used for cars, vehicles too but now that part is used for pedestrians only. But this is lower part of the bridge, upper part has railway track on it which is still used for trains. It seems very beautiful train passing the bridge on Indus river with mountains around it.

Beside that old style railway station which has old machinery in it. I amazed to see that machinery is still active and they used it to communicate with other railway stations. According to that station master, this kind of old machinery is in most of the cities of Khyber Pakhtun-Khwa. That machinery has Siemens logo on it, how old this company is. Well that antique style railway station around the mountains took us back in 1800.

We came back to 2011 and move towards the river shore which has sand on it like a beach. We get down to the sea by passing through many rocks and difficult passage. It was a nice view of river passing through the high mountains. Part which touches the river was mostly of sand in which my son played alot. He fill himself all with sand and he was the most happiest person over there. It feels nice to walk on sand with your shoes off. Weather was good over there which is a blessing in summer. It’s a nice place to have a picnic with your family.
