Tourism Industry in the Northern Areas Has Increased Significantly

Raja Rasheed Ali, Secretary Tourism Gilgit-Baltistan, said domestic tourism was growing in the country as millions of locals visited the country’s attractive northern areas.

He made these views during a World Wildlife Fund (WWF)-Pakistan panel discussion aimed at highlighting the biodiversity of the Hindu-Kush, Karakoram, and Himalayan region, as well as the implications of climate change and anthropogenic activity.

He said the Gilgit-Baltistan government was concentrating on improving people’s livelihoods, cultivating the land, and employing technology to streamline tourism by splitting and diversifying tourist concentrations in specific locations.

The speakers emphasized the need of public participation in policy development surrounding sustainable tourism, building local community capacity, sustainable mountain architecture, and the necessity for trans-boundary collaboration for sustainable tourism.

“Tourism has massively increased in the GB region,” stated Haider Raza, Regional Head Gilgit-Baltistan, and WWF-Pakistan.
