Prime Minister Imran Khan has been working ardently towards making his vision of establishing tourism in Pakistan a reality. In an effort to promote tourism around the world, there is a need for proper attraction spots that includes comfortable lounging, eateries and an organized system that manages concerned activities. All this was lacking before and Pakistan’s potential of becoming one of the most sorted out countries for vacations, exploration and adventure were going to waste.
However, several tangible projects have been executed to further the aim of attracting local and foreign tourists, after the current government took charge. Furthermore, K-P (Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa) government has been on this case since the beginning as they recently inaugurated an artificial lake that has a lot to offer.
This man-made lake is located in Galiyat and goes by the name Samundar Katha Lake!
This lake isn’t just another boring spot with touched-pictures circulating online. In fact, the latest updates of this developing tourist attraction that has now been opened for visitors were shared by the PM Imran Khan himself on his social media accounts, validating its progress and showing a picture that depicts an exciting place to visit with your family, friends or with significant other.
Situated between the beautiful hills, this lake is a sight to behold!
