French and European climbers, hikers, skiers and adventure sports enthusiasts choose Pakistan as their favourite destination.
Moin Ul Haque, Pakistan ’s ambassador to France, said in a conversation with two French writers and journalists Ms Berenice Rocfort and Ms Emilie Brouze, that they are co-authors of the book “Winter in the Himalayas: The Last Challenge.” At a virtual meeting held in Paris yesterday, a press release from Paris (France) was published here today.
The ambassador congratulated the two newspapers for choosing unique themes and cited the bitter experiences of six bold and experienced climbers in the Himalayas and Karakorum Mountains.
This includes the experience of French climber Elizabeth Revol trying to climb Nanga Parbat, in which she lost her Polish colleague Thomas Mickiewicz.
With the help of Polish climbers Denis Urubko and Adam Bielecki, she was rescued in a bold rescue operation under the leadership of a Pakistani army helicopter.
The ambassador said that the Pakistani government will focus on promoting Pakistan’s tourism as a national priority.
The security situation has been improved, the tourist visa policy has been relaxed, and the tourism infrastructure is being modernized.
He said that Pakistan would appreciate France’s cooperation in developing mountain tourism in Pakistan. Speaking of Pakistan’s tourism potential, Rocfort and Brouze mentioned that Pakistan provides attractive opportunities for international climbers and their unspoilt and unexplored landscapes.
