KAI VALLEY: THE SCENIC SPOT FOR VISITORS IN SINDH, PAKISTAN

The Kai valley provides picturesque views on both sides of the road, and it appears as if the hills were once below sea level because of the visible signs of water erosion. A narrow and tough track leads to the 2 cave sites:

  • The lower site, regionally called “Satt Ghariyoon” (Seven caves), is to the east of the village Muhammad Khan Noohani, located near a mountainous water stream.
  • The upper site lies to the south of the village, at the top of the hill which is encircled by an ancient compound wall of stones; here the remnants of ancient hamlets and pieces of terracotta pottery have been found belonging to the old Indus Valley Civilization and the caves of Stone Age.

There are 4 prehistoric or chalcolithic sites here at Kai Valley, namely: Bulo-Ji-Buthi, Nuko-Buthi, Kai-Buthi and Naing.

Bulo-Ji-Buthi’ (mound of Bulo) is situated over 35 kilometers from Sehwan. It is an ancient hamlet near a village that used to be inhabited by the Noohani tribe. ‘Bulo-Ji-Buthi’ is called such because the grave of Bulo Khoso of Kalhora period is situated here. In accordance to legend, Bulo was a courageous person whose reputation for bravery spread from Kai to Gaaj. The mound has a damaged kot (compound wall of stones) all around it.

Near the lower caves, there is a garden termed as Panjatan-Jo-Bagh (garden of five sacred personalities) planted with date palm and other trees. One can see a water mill on the centuries-old spring; this water is also utilized by the locals for cultivation.
Kai has a rest house as well.
