SIBI MELA (Local-Event)in Pakistan:

Sibi lays 163 Kms. – three 3 hrs. Drive to the south east of Quetta-Baluchistan Pakistan, at the entrance of the well-known “Bolan Pass”. Since the 15th century, this town has been the gathering place of all the tribal chiefs of the area. The British had carried on and preserved this tradition in the form of an annual “Darbar” or meeting, combining it with a fair where thousands of Baluchi tribesmen gathered along with their animals in mid February. This tradition still carries on and every year during February.
