Gilgit-Baltistan is nothing less than paradise for tourists. High mountains, beautiful lakes and a variety of fruit contribute to the beauty of the region. It is one of the most peaceful areas, welcoming around 500,000 tourists every year. But the poor condition of the Skardu road is causing a lot of trouble. The reconstruction of the road is being delayed, intentionally, by certain influential people.
Although the reconstruction project was approved instantly, no work has been started to date. The higher authorities should not ignore the matter and start the reconstruction of the road.
