curious2 | 7 years ago | Reply It's a big World and most of it is very safe to travel in .... Pakistan isn't. If Egypt is having a hard time attracting tourism because of the perception of safety you can imagine the challenge facing Pakistan.
IH | 7 years ago | Reply Its "Khabeki" not Khabeli Lake. The main road from Khushab to Sakesar, the central artery linking the valley to the district headquarter has been in a state of disrepair for years and yet we have these tall claims of making Soon Valley a "tourist destination". How about giving the local people their basic necessities before making these claims.
