Khan mentioned that Deosai plains – the high altitude plateau in Gilgit Baltistan --- had turned out to be the country’s first winter ski traverse.
He shared a number of pictures of the local and foreign skiers enjoying themselves in the snow-clad Deosai.
Recently, a ski traverse event was held by the Tourism Department of Gilgit Baltistan at Deosai National Park to encourage tourism in the mountainous region.
