We visit the 19th-century Ranikot Fort encircled by a forbidding 24-kilometer long wall that is Pakistan's Great Wall. Encompassing an area over 40 square kilometres, many believe that Ranikot is the world's largest fort. Historians think that the Indo-Greeks or Scythians built it. But the people who live here say it was the handiwork of magical giants who served King Solomon. From here, we drive to Amri, the 20-acre excavation site of a society that pre-dates the Indus Valley Civilisation. Later drive to Sehwan Sharif. We explore the city of Sehwan Sharif, known for its shrine of Lal Shabaz Qalandar, a mystic, poet, scholar and missionary, who belonged to the Qalanderiyah Order of Dervishes. Every day, devotees come to this shrine to enjoy an evening performance of the mystic Dhamal. Dervishes in flowing robes, colourful beads, bracelets, and green turbans hum verses against the slow beat of drums and horns. The tempo increases. The dervishes whirl faster and faster, working themselves into a hypnotic trance reinforced by the thunderous din of the music. Dinner and over night camping/Rest House.
Day 05: Sehwan – Moenjodaro (200 km, 6-7 hrs)
Drive to Mohenjodaro, the most important excavation site of the Indus Valley Civilisation. Under the shadow of an old Buddhist Stupa, acres of desert ruins that date back to 3000 B.C. reveal a mud-brick and burnt-brick city that identifies a sophisticated early society.

We proceed to the city of Sukkur and take a ride in a decorated house-boat on the Indus River -- our way to meet the Mohanas, a boat people who rarely put foot on land. We also see the island-based Sadhu Bella Temple where Hindu worshippers purify themselves in the water. Finally, we visit the nearby Kot Diji Fort, built in the early 19th century by the Talpur Mirs of Sindh as a defence against the British. Constructed of white limestone, it offered ideal protection for 15,000 men; but the fort never saw any warring army approach its three doors. We also visit the Minaret of Masum Shah, built between 1594 and 1618,stands like a solid brick lighthouse on the highest point of Sukkur and can be seen from most parts of the town and surrounding countryside. The tomb of Shah Khair-ud-din Jilani, built in 1760 and repaired in 1884. We also visit Friday Mosque. Overnight hotel.
Day 07: Sukkur – Uch – Bahawalpur (8-9 hrs)
Our next destination on the edge of the Cholistan Desert. Its tombs, shrines, and minarets with glazed blue and white tiles are crumbling. These majestic edifices once stood proudly over the debris of an earlier city built by Alexander the Great. Only the covered mile-long bazaar pulses with life: a maze of lanes lined with tiny shops of cobblers, sweet-meat sellers, iron-smiths, hakeems (herb doctors), footpath dentists, and fortune-tellers. Gypsy women from the desert barter their colourful embroidered work for fanciful lipsticks and perfumes, silver jewellery, and battery cells. Continue drive to Bahawalpur overnight Motel.
