The clues were purely based on the history of each destination. Participants were awarded points and rewarded at the end of the tour.

Through various fun-loaded activities and a hunt for answers, Dhoond Karachi hunt delivered information and hence created awareness.

"We strictly believe that complete awareness ensures implementation intuitively. Gaining knowledge about the sacrifice and effort of yesterday will only ensure the action and determination of today," said a member of Let's Connect, Phir Se society.

The tour left the participants awestruck as they realised that they had been blind to Karachi's beauty for decades.
