Bid to develop Deosai plains in Gilgit Baltistan as Pakistan’s first winter ski resort

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said his government was working on a ski resort’s feasibility in a bid to promote winter tourism in the South Asian nation.

“Exploring winter tourism and ski resorts feasibility, Deosai plains first-ever winter ski traverse,” the PM tweeted.

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.
