It is pertinent to mention here that It is to be mentioned that Northern areas are famous for natural beauty in all over the world but due to Lack of security foreign tourists are afraid to visit these beautiful natural heritage sites.
Pakistan is a country with Worlds most beautiful places but unfortunately Government of Pakistan is not serious in promoting tourism in the state.If Government promote tourism,it can be the largest Industry of Pakistan as in many countries including India,Tourism has become a leading Industry where Monthly thousand tourists come to Visit India.
