Distance: 5 KMs

Journey time: Downstream - 20 Minutes Upstream -- 1 ½ Hour (Return)

About the route: The historic region of Attock lies at the confluence of two great rivers: the Kabul, which ends here after travelling some 435 km from its source, in the mountains west of the Afghan capital; and the Indus, one of the legendary rivers of Asia, which begins high in the Tibetan Himalayas. Where the two rivers meet, the Kabul appears a muddy burnt-sugar colour, the Indus a brilliant blue-green. Further downstream, the two colours remain clearly visible, one river with two distinct streams, for considerable distance until they slowly accommodate each other.
