There is sigh of relief for Kaghan-Naran Road, a popular tourist route, which has now reopened by the National Highway Authority (NHA) after being closed for 32 hours due to heavy boulders and landslides at Ghanool.

Authorities also assured that the landslide will be completely cleared soon. Officials from the NHA and the district administration were present during the clearance operation.
