Plan To Promote Eco-Tourism In World’s First High Altitude Nature Corridor
Islamabad: With the goal of boosting eco-tourism in the country, the Ministry of Climate Change has designed a plan to build the world’s first high-altitude nature corridor in Pakistan.
According to the plan, the corridor will be 10,000 feet above sea level and will span 4,000 square kilometers from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) to Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK).
The corridor will pass through Nanga Parbat National Park and Himalaya National Park, both of which are existing protected regions.
Snow leopards, Himalayan brown bears, Ladakh Urial, ibex, markhor, and blue sheep will all be present in the planned corridor, and visitors will be able to learn more about them.
Furthermore, because a variety of bird and animal species migrate to places inside the proposed corridor, the corridor will provide a diverse range of opportunities for adventure tourism.
In this regard, a senior official from the Climate Change Ministry stated that local communities will be consulted before the High Altitude Nature Corridor is built.
Because their livelihoods are linked to eco-tourism, they will be trained to protect the corridor from degradation.
This way, not only will they preserve the corridor’s sites, but they will also be able to sustain their livelihoods.
It’s worth noting that, in recent years, Pakistan has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. It ranked first on Forbes’ “Top 10 Coolest Places to Visit in 2019” and Conde Nast’s “Best Holiday Destination in 2020” lists. According to Malik Amin Aslam, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Climate Change, several other countries earn billions of dollars from eco-tourism.
