Kaghan Blocked Due to Excessive Snow

Even though it is peak tourist season, the roads to Kaghan Valley and Shogran Resort are blocked due to the failure to remove excessive snowfall.

Residents and tourists have complained to the authorities about the roads leading to Kaghan Valley, Shogran Resort being blocked due to excessive snow. The management was unable to clear the passage even after days of delay.

The Mansehra-Naran-Jalkhad Road was blocked during the recent snowfall in the valley suspending traffic between Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan. With several people stranded in the upper parts of the Kaghan Valley, they demanded authorities to clear the excessive snow and reopen passages.

Even though this is tourist season, very few families have been able to visit Kaghan Valley due to such excessive snow that led to road blockages.

Moreover, the Kaghan valley district has planned to organize a women-only ceremony to analyze the issues of women regarding inheritance. “For the first time, we [administration] are holding the Revenue Darbar to address the people’s land issues through one-window operation,” deputy commissioner Dr. Qassim Ali Khan told reporters on Friday.

Besides deputy commissioner and district collector, the service points of the additional DC, assistant commissioner, tehsildars, and patwaris of every circle in the district were set up at the Darbar here for the provision of land documents, records correction, mutation, land registry, issuance of domicile certificates, and other related matters.

Dr. Qassim talked about how many families in areas such as the Kaghan Valley refused to provide their family members a due share in their inheritance which is a Revenue Darbar will be made for women. Through this Darbar, women could claim rights and resolution of the revenue department-related issues.

However, the administrator talked about the concerns of the coronavirus, and how Manshera and other areas such as Kaghan Valley had a high positivity rate- almost 10%. “Ours is the second-highest testing tally in the province after Peshawar’s and therefore the cases recorded in Mansehra are more than other districts’,” he said.
