We drove from Harīpur to Naushāhra. The road was good and traffic was heavy. We reached at Naushāhra cantt at about 3:30 pm on an average speed of 65 km/h.
Naushāhra (also locally known as Nokhaar) is one of the most historical and important district situated in NorthWest Frontier Province (NWFP) of Pakistan and is bordered to the west by Peshāwar, to the Northwest by Chārsadda and Mardān, to the east by Swābi, and to the Southeast by Attock districts. Hence Naushāhra possesses a central position in NWFP.
It was the simplest one from the last three; we drove to the CP in our car. The place is some army leftovers barracks. We take the snaps and return to the road. In the way back, we stayed at Attock Bridge, where the Kābul River joins the Indus River. It was very scenic to see two colors (green and brown) mixing with each other. There we ate our delayed lunch (fresh river fish) at 5:00 pm. We reached Islāmābād at about 6:30 pm.
