Tourists arrived in multitude to the Kaghan Valley in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in record numbers this Eid-ul-Azha, with hundreds of thousands of vehicles blocking the roads and causing huge traffic jams at the tourist site, reports Dawn.

Tourists heading to the Kaghan Valley faced a fuel shortage and long queues of vehicles could be seen at every filling station in the area.  

“Around 0.7 million vehicles carrying tourists have entered the valley so far and more motorists are on the way to this picturesque destination,” District Police Officer (DPO) Asif Bahadur said, reports Geo News.


A video of the blocked route started making rounds on social media.

Tourists already stuck in the jam urged people not to visit and declared a ‘traffic emergency’ in the region.

Prime Minister Imran Khan had praised the beauty of Kaghan Valley.

“I have toured the world but have not witnessed such a beauty that has been bestowed by Allah upon this Kaghan Valley,” he had said.
