Flourishing tourism in the valley
With the construction of quality roads, tourism in Gilgit-Baltistan has surged in recent years. Experts, however, believe that an exponential rise in tourism in Hunza and other surrounding areas calls for the government’s attention to streamline and manage the impact of the unplanned and haphazard expansion of tourism prompting the rapid rise in the construction of concrete buildings in the valley.
In the past several years, foreign YouTubers and vloggers have traveled to this part of Pakistan in large numbers, showcasing the beauty of the region to the foreign audience.
Gilgit-Baltistan holds prime importance in the tourism sector of Pakistan, hence demands the unusual attention of the government for its development and conservation.
