The Swat motorway has allowed tourists to travel easily to enjoy the beautiful winter scenery of the place. Swat has always been a much loved tourist destination but this year we see even more tourists coming in the winter just because of ice fishing. As Najma, a tourist quoted, “This is something new and unique when you are in a very cold weather and water under your feet is frozen and you have the opportunity to fish trout. Fortunately we experienced it today here in the green valley of Malam Jabba.”
Ice fishing is basically when you break the ice to fish under it. It has been introduced for the first time in Malam Jabba. This new and unique experience is definitely something you cannot miss when you go to Swat now. The green valley of Malam Jabba is usually empty at this time of the year but this year the nature lovers are pouring in to get new experiences. Such activities really are adventurous and seeing that Pakistan is one of the top tourist destinations, this would really help in boosting the image of the country worldwide.
Although, ice fishing is an interesting new addition to the activities you can do up north, please ensure that you do not cause unnecessary disruption to the land. The ethics of responsible travel should always be followed. For us, it is just a few days of vacationing, but for the locals, it is their home. Respecting their home, privacy, and keeping it clean should be the priority of every tourist.
