Sphinx of Balochistan

While Egypt is home to the Great Sphinx of Giza, Pakistan's Hingol National Park is home to another sphinx that resembles its man-made cousin but was formed without the help of human hands. This sphinx, carved by wind and rain, sits atop a mountain about 155 miles from Karachi on the Makran Coastal Highway.

The Makran Coastal Highway offers visitors a peek of other unique rock formations as well, such as the Princess of Hope, a rock shaped like a human standing tall above a pile of rocks.
