Finding Mona (1902-Present)


Mona_Punjab_Pakistan donkey cart


About halfway between Islamabad and Lahore is Mona, home of Pakistani remounts… an oasis amongst dust and rubble. It is next to the town of Phularwan, located on the Lahore-Islamabad motorway (M2) at the Salam interchange in Sargodha District. Phularwan is known for its oranges.

Rashid's House


This Bungalow was built in 1907, more than hundred years old. It still has the original wood work, wood shed, and the fire place. The really thick walls are still standing strong and provide cool environment in the searing summers.

The Buggy Ride


One of the highlights of stay was a ride on beautiful buggy. The driver holds a local record of assembling and driving a 28 horse-drawn carriage which is up for the Guinness Book of World Records. The current international record is 23 horse-drawn carriage.

During the ride we wandered into donkey territory where the donkeys were not very happy to be called donkeys.

The Remounts!


Mona is the biggest remount depot of Pakistan where horses are bred and trained for war and transport purposes by Pakistan Army. These horses are particularly useful in mountainous regions and the battlefields in the Northern Areas. Their beautiful coats shone brightly in the sun.
