Kotli Sattian to Rival Murree as a Tourist Destination

As per sources, the Commissioner Office stated that Kotli Sattian will be developed as an alternative to Murree, he further said that the provincial government is planning numerous strategies to help identify tourism sites in the region. 

He also mentioned that an alternative hill station is being constructed as a fail-safe load reduction strategy to reduce traffic problems in the area. Roads, greenbelts, and sitting spots will be developed, and forest protection guidelines will be circulated across the region in due time.   

The Commissioner’s Office added that the century-old forest treehouse that had been built during the dying years of the British Raj will also be renovated to add more color and beauty to the region. 

After the completion of these projects in the region, tourists will be able to travel to Kotli Sattian from Islamabad-Rawalpindi within an hour, thus making it more suitable and economically worthwhile to visit rather than travelling to a highly crowded Murree during the vacations.
