K2 summit, a new dawn of tourism in GB


Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan Ali Amin Khan Gandapur Sunday said the successful summit of the world’s second highest mountain K2 by the Nepali climbers would boost winter tourism in GB.
‘It will be a new dawn of winter tourism in the region,’ the minister said in a statement while congratulating the Napali climbers for scaling k2. Pakistan’s K2 (8,611m), the world’s second highest mountain and the only one among the 8,000m peaks had never been climbed before in winter.
The mountaineers had shown great courage, bravery and skill by reaching at the top of the mountain. It is a great honor for any climber to scale the world’s second highest peak, said Gandapur. He said dozens of climbers visited Pakistan every year for mountaineering as it offers a number of mountains to the adventure tourists.—APP
