Early on Thursday, the Kaghan Highway was closed to traffic because landslides had covered a significant portion of the route.

District Commissioner Mansehra stated that the route was still in danger due to snowfall and landslides and that a public notice would be issued as soon as it was safe to go.

The DC also advised against visitors and residents going to Babusar Top.

The announcement of reopening of the Babusar for tourists after a seven-month shutdown has followed by the warning about the Thursday’s road obstruction.

Babusar Top, which is located at a height of 13,700 feet above sea level, is inaccessible to travellers from October to June. However, as soon as the area is open to visitors once the snow melts in June, tourists deluge the region.

Travellers may concurrently see the mountains of Gilgit-Baltistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Kashmir when passing via the Babusar pass.
