Babusar-Top Tunnel to boost tourism
The government has planned to construct the Babusar-Top tunnel in the next financial year. The tunnel will connect the Chilas (Gilgit Baltistan) with Kaghan Valley. It will be an all-season tunnel since the government is planning to build it under-ground. Currently, one of the most dangerous roads of Pakistan is connecting the two places. In this way, the tunnel will provide a better and safer journey.
