The Galiyat Development Authority’s spokesperson Ahsan Hameed has said that “we have created a new tourist destination so that visitors coming to Goliath can enjoy it, however, we are trying to further improve it.”

A large number of tourists from all over the country have started visiting the newly-built tourist spot.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Imran Khan announced opening Governor House Nathiagali for the general public. The eight-room historical building was constructed in 1923 and spans over 76 kanals. It lies 7,922 feet above sea level.

PM Khan decided to open all the government rest houses for the masses. These rest houses will now be available for booking.

The move will not only help maintain these historic buildings but also provide revenue to the government.
