However, this snow storm doesn’t have to kill tourists especially if you take the following precautions:

  • If heading up north, make sure you have a hotel booking. In this way, you won’t have to sleep in your car.
  • If you are stuck in snow and can’t get to your hotel, DO NOT sleep in your car. It has killed 23 innocent people, including children only a week ago. Once again, Carbon Monoxide KILLS!!!
  • Before leaving home, make sure you take these items with you:
  • Sweatshirts and sweatpants 
  • Socks
  • Mittens
  • Gloves
  • Mufflers 

Last but not least, never leave home without snow chains for your tyres. You just can’t drive safely on a hilly road full of snow without them and they don’t cost a fortune.

While the local and district administration may be more prepared now, you and not they are responsible for your family’s welfare. So, do the right thing and travel up north only if you’re sure its worth it.

One response to “Another snowstorm in Murree doesn’t have to kill innocent tourists”

  1. AoA, no need to go there especially along with minor children. It is suggested and recommended that while your visit in Murree if any violation is occured by hotel management or by any locals, immediately report to the local police station under circulation to the high ups. Try to make their videos etc. All complaints must b share with higher authorities. It is suggested that make your visit plan in different times instead of peak seasons etc.
    Thanks and regards.
