Sustainable Eco-tourism Programme for Soon Valley

The Urban Unit, in collaboration with the Tourism Development Corporation of Punjab (TDCP), is working on a comprehensive and sustainable eco-tourism programme for Soon Valley, which includes the development of facilities at three different sites in the area: Kanhatti Gardens, Khabbeki Lake and Uchali Lake, and will also contribute towards fostering the development of ecotourism activities in other regions of Pakistan.

The construction work is near completion at Khabbeki Lake and Kanhatti Garden. The Garden has also been outfitted with a gravity-fed water system that makes use of the natural gradient of the surrounding hills to provide a continuous source of clean water to all parts of the site.
