The National Highway 70 (Urdu: قومی شاہراہ ۷۰), or the N-70, is one of the National Highways of Pakistan. It runs from the city of Multan in Punjab to the town of Qilla Saifullah via Dera Ghazi Khan, and Loralai in Balochistan province.[1] Its total length is 440 kilometres (270 mi) divided into 254 kilometres (158 mi) in Balochistan and the remaining 186 km (116 mi) in the Punjab. It is maintained and operated by Pakistan's National Highway Authority.

The N-70 runs in between the mighty Sulaiman Mountains, lush green farmlands of Multan and Dera Ghazi Khan's districts, and you may also experience the fascinating sceneries of MusaKhel, Makhter region, and empty and beautiful areas from Loralai to Qilla Saifullah.
