Giglit: The foreign tourists who came to Hunza to enjoy the spring blossom are stuck in the region after the destruction caused by torrential rainfall. Among the stuck tourists are 22 Japanese and five Koreans, some of whom are senior citizens and facing health problems due to the sudden cold spell.

A Korean tourist told Pamir Times that many of the tourists have to catch a flight on 6th of April, for which they have already purchased tickets.

The tourists appealed to the Pakistan Army and the Government of Pakistan for aerial evacuation from the region.
