In response to the tourism-promoting initiative, Karar Haidari, Secretary Alpine Club, stated that the country has never seen as many tourists as this year, which is a good sign for the country’s tourism industry.
He also stated that the rickshaw adventure will take seven days to reach Khunjerab. He also urged the government to help tourists with visas and other services that will increase the number of tourists.
