Malam Jabba resort to reopen soon.
Destroyed during the height of militant power in the scenic Swat valley, construction of the Malam Jabba ski resort is in the final stages.
While the provincial Tourism, Sports, Archeology, Museums, Culture and Youth Affairs Department had reopened the chairlift and skiing track at the 'mini-Switzerland' resort for the tourists, the main resort building was still closed.
According to an official statement, the 90-room hotel will soon reopen after restoration work is complete.
When tourism-related projects were handed over to the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) government following the 18th constitutional amendment, the provincial government started construction on the skiing track and chairlift for tourists on 12 acres of land near the old PTDC Motel.
In a statement issued on Thursday, the tourism department said that 257 acres of forests near the chairlift and skiing track would be developed for use by the tourists.
Moreover, the project includes three state-of-the-art picnic spots in Malam Jabba, a hotel, parks, mosque, and rest areas, rain shelters, public washrooms, tea, coffee and tuck shops.
