Pakistan has been blessed with so much natural beauty that we cannot thank Allah enough but unfortunately there is no development or tourism. In search of peace and quiet the only easily accessible place is Murree, where people from all over the country rush during summers. The Naran Valley, Neelem Valley, Gilgit and Chitral are ignored due to non availability of transport as well as lack of good and reasonable priced hotels.

I wish that out tourism ministry tried a little bit harder to accommodate the local tourist as we cannot expect any foreign tourist due to lack of security in the country. The much talked about Waziristan has its own kind of beauty, once we settle down this monster of terrorism I hope the government will look favourably towards improving tourism.
