Cholistan Jeep Rally 2016
Attended by over 100,000 people from across the country last year, Cholistan Jeep Rally has gained massive popularity among thrill seekers who not only enjoy the show but also participate in the rally. Usually the participants are male, but the Cholistan desert jeep rally 2016 in Bahawalpur also attracted two female drivers from Germany who participated in the event.
Known as the most attended event in Pakistan, Cholistan Jeep Rally serves as an amazing depiction of world history, culture and heritage. The event includes a rich cultural show with fireworks and folk musical night in front of the magical Fort Derawar promoting tourism in Pakistan. Derawar Fort is a beautiful heritage site, built by a Hindu Rajput, Jajja Bhati of Jaisalmer. The fort remained under the control of the royal family until it got captured in 1733 by the Nawabs of Bahawalpur. In 1804, Nawab Mubarak Khan took the control back in his hands.
