Naran, Pakistan: There is no electricity power supply is available in Naran Valley since last October snowfall.
The Valley which is one of the most popular tourism destinations of Pakistan is facing extreme noise pollution because over 1500 big and small hotels are using electric power generators to lit their accommodations.
One of the most popular tourism destinations in Pakistan is Naran in Kaghan Valley which is base camp of world famous touristic spots like Lake Sailful Maluk, Malika Parbat, Ansu Lake, Lulusar Lake, Dudipatsur Lake, Thak, Sooch, Gatidas, Basal, and Babusar Pass.
Despite the claims of PTI government to promote tourism in Pakistan, there is no electricity power supply available since last October in Naran Valley though tourism season is at peak and thousands of tourists are travelling every week to this one of the most beautiful valley. Moreover, road from Balakot to Naran has dilapidated and a journey of 90 KM from Balakot to Naran Bazaar which could be completed just in one and half hour two years ago is difficult to travel in three hours or more due to torn-off road.
The environment of valley is polluted due to constant noise of power generators being used by over 1500 hotels at night to lit their accommodation.
It is pertinent to mention that PTI is ruling Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as well as federal government.
Hoteliers claim that power supply was cut off in October extreme weather condition last winter but it is yet to be restored though tourism season is at its peak.
Prime Minister Imran Khan has vision to promote tourism in Pakistan but road condition and absence of electricity in Naran for the last nine months indicate that his vision is trickle-down and concerned authorities are yet to follow his vision.
