  1. Great ! Your news and your photos are remarkable. My love for my NA increases every time I visit your site.

  2. One of the most beautiful valley in Gilgit Baltistan. We can make GB like switzerland There is nothing special in switzerland they have worked on roads. PIA cannot land to Gilgit and Skardu airport while there are regular flights in Switzerland despite of mountains and bad weather but why not in GB. Yes this is the main problem.
