Babusar Top Opens For Tourists After Six Months Restrictions

If you plan to travel north this summer, here is some good news. After six months, the National Highway Administration and the Kaghan Development Agency reopened the Babusar Top to tourists.

Frontier Works cleared the glaciers and snow from the road and reopened it to traffic. After that, the travel time from Mansehra to Gilgit-Baltistan was reduced by five hours.

Due to snowfall, the pass is closed in winter. During this period, traffic was diverted to the Karakoram Expressway.

In summer, especially from May to August, hundreds of tourists travel to Gilgit-Baltistan. Last year, due to the coronavirus closure, all these tourist attractions were closed. The local population suffered the most during this period, as 90% of them depend on tourism for their livelihoods.

Last month, the National Command and Operations Center lifted all travel restrictions.

Tourists have been instructed to carry coronavirus test results and vaccination certificates against Covid-19. People must follow standard operating procedures.
