Tourists thronged the Saiful Muluk Lake during Eid holidays as Kaghan Development Authority cleared the road leading to it after six months.
“We have cut the mega glacier, which fell in way of the Saiful Muluk Lake, and opened the road to traffic. Now the tourists, who have thronged the valley, could visit this fantasy place,” Muzammil Khan, the KDA environmental inspector, told journalists on Thursday.
Mansehra-Naran-Jalkhad and Lake roads were blocked when Kaghan valley received snowfall in October last year. MNJ road, which connects Khyber Pakhtunkhwa with Gilgit-Baltistan, had already been cleared to traffic beyond Battakundi last month and now that artery leading to Saiful Muluk Lake has been reopened to traffic.
The tourists, who visited Kaghan valley to spend the Eid holidays, rushed to Saiful Muluk Lake as the road was reopened.
