what should be here?

Sheikh Badin Hills

Tucked away to the east of the Pezu Mountains, a two-hour drive from Dera Ismail Khan, lies Sheikh Badin, a hill station that could serve as a well-known oasis in the midst of the largely arid terrain of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province. The hill station overlooks the beautiful town of Paniala, famed for its gardens, saints, and exploding mangoes. There is a resort at the cool hilltop, known as the Daak Bangla, which was built more than 100 years ago. It comprises a few rooms with a panorama view of the mountains and beautiful town of Paniala. One can also opt for a charpoy laid out in the veranda to take in the breathtaking view of the Pezu Mountains. Tourists can actually rent prison cells for a night’s stay or camp out in the lawn by paying a small amount to the local caretaker. And they can take their pick from among six small and four large cells, and a jailor’s room all of which are still in good condition. Once a massive British era cantonment, it is now a popular hill station in the southern region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. A cold breeze always blows across the top day and night. The hills are also home to a wide range of animals, most notable of which are Jackals, Wild foxes & Urials. The wildlife department has declared the area to be a wild-life park.
