Pakistan, April 7 (Khaleej Times) – 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.
