International Mountains Day is observed across the world to draw attention to the significant role that mountains play in the life of humans and to highlight the issues of climate change, hunger and migration of those people who live in mountainous areas.
Mountains offer 60-80 percent of the world’s freshwater. According to UNO, almost one billion people live in mountainous areas and over half of the human population depends on mountains for water and nutrition.
World’s second highest mountain peak K2 is located in Pakistan. This is a great asset of Pakistan. The highest peak in Sindh is Gorakh Hill Station in Dadu. Sadly, this hill station has remained overlooked in terms of development. The road which leads to Gorakh hill station is in poor condition. Although a huge budget has been released for the development of Gorakh hill station, still development remained only on papers. Residents of Gorakh hill station live a miserable life. Even there is no single school in this hilly area. This tourist place can be Murree of Sindh, and it will attract thousands of tourists if developed properly.
The international community has to take steps to save mountains and its inhabitants from climate change and other natural disasters. Especially the Sindh government is requested to take measures for the development of Gorakh hill station and make it a wonderful tourist place of Sindh and promote tourism of Sindh across the world.
