Tourists’ influx causes road blockages up north

ABBOTTABAD: Tourists from all across the country on Saturday rushed to Galyat, Kaghan, Naran, Thandyani, and other spots to enjoy the cool weather and serene beauty of the area which led to many roads being jam-packed.

Owing to the tourist influx from all over the country, Karakoram Highway (KKH) from Mansehra to Naran and Murree road from Abbottabad to Nathiagali remained blocked where thousands of tourists were stuck on both sides of the road. Mile-long ques of stranded tourists could be seen on both sides of KKH and Murree road.

Weather in the upper parts of Hazara is very pleasant and the temperature in Galyat was around 19-degrees while in Naran it was about 12 degrees centigrade. Galyat Development Authority (GDA) and Abbottabad traffic police have made all arrangements to facilitate tourists but more than expected numbers of tourists reached in both Galyat and Kaghan resulting in the traffic blockage. The traffic police asked the tourists to avoid wrong parking which is causing serious road blockage.
