Indeed, this city is perfectly nestled between those mountains. Very good capture and excellent framing.
The different colours of the houses and the lights are very nice and make a great contrast with those rough mountainslopes.
Best regards, Paul

This is a magical view of night in Quetta city. When I was there, I could saw the word "Ya Ali" written on a very high mountain with Bulbs, so it looked like as if its written in sky with stars. That was where the hazara people lived. Thanks for sharing, Atif

A very unusual view, with a good contrast between the city and the surrounding mountains. Good composition.

great night shot of the city,
as a french actor/writer said "it's beautiful a city at night" ("c'est beau une ville la nuit", Richard Bohringer).
It seems like golden and silver pieces in a hand, great effect.
It must be a fine site to set town.
