Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday shared breathtaking pictures of the first ever winter skiing in snow-covered Deosai.
The premier shared the pictures on Twitter, saying that this is Deosai plains’ first ever winter ski traverse.
“Exploring winter tourism and ski resorts feasibility,” PM Imran said in a tweet.
Deosai plateaus are considered the second-highest plateaus in the world.
It is situated at an average elevation of 4,114 metres (13,497 ft) above sea level in Gilgit-Baltistan.
According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), the Deosai plateau hosts the only stable population in the region and is important for its continued survival.
PM Khan displays a keen focus on reviving the tourism industry of Pakistan as he repeatedly called attention to the untapped potential of the industry.
Earlier, while speaking to journalists in Jhelum after the inauguration of a tourism project, the premier said that tourism can be the biggest source of employment in Pakistan [if proper work is done to develop the sector].
