Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated the vital Jaglot-Skardu Road, which connects the Karakoram Highway (KKH) with Skardu, a tourist, hiking, and adventure center in Gilgit Baltistan (GB).

GB is traversed by the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), and the Jaglot-Skardu Road connects KKH and Skardu.

The opening of this route will boost tourism and commercial activities in the region and beyond.

The government began work on the “Upgrading and Widening of Jaglot-Skardu Road (167 km),” which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In addition to the Jaglot-Skardu Road, Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated Skardu International Airport.

The construction of the Jaglot-Skardu road reduced the travel time between Skardu and Gilgit by half, from eight to three hours. With this new and improved road network, tourism from Gilgit to Skardu will increase and become cost-effective for tourists.

The upgrading and Widening of the Jaglot-Skardu Road (167 km) initiative was started by the government in order to promote tourism by reducing the travel time. This will also add to an increase in economic activity and generate more income for local businesses.
