ABBOTTABAD: After passing three days of Eid-ul-Fitr, tourist influx continues in the Hazara division where hundreds of thousands of people from across the country have reached and enjoying the serene beauty of the region.

As the mercury rises in Punjab, Sindh and some parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, tourists have rushed to the hilly areas of Hazara where they are visiting waterfalls, lakes, rivers, streams and hills to enjoy the beauty and beat the heat of the summer.

Despite good measures by the traffic police of district Abbottabad and Mansehra, the main Murree road, which leads to Galyat, Thandyani road, Mansehra Naran Jalkhad (MNJ) road, was blocked for many hours owing to the heavy traffic of the tourists.

During the Eid vacations, the weather in the upper parts of Hazara division was very pleasant with intermittent rain coupled with thunderstorms. The National Highway Authority (NHA) also opened the MNJ road first time before Eid vacations and now the tourists have the opportunity to visit up to Lulusar Lake while the road will be cleared up to Babusar Top within coming few days.
