After the situation went worst, Rawalpindi and Islamabad Administration closed the route to Muree, Islamabad to Murree Travel Ban Extended.
Over and Over again after a few years tourist destination Murree hills starts trending over the misbehavior of the locals with the tourists or overcharging hotel rooms depending on how worst the situation is. Murree has always been in the limelight for local tourism in Pakistan.
On the night of Friday and Saturday, thousands of vehicles were stranded after heavy snowfall started in Murree, Galiyat region of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the unfortunate tourists were stuck in their vehicles left with no other option but to leave Murree and return to Islamabad were unable to move any further as snowstorm gained momentum, next morning as the administration started rescue operation found around 22 tourists were found dead and thousands were stranded in their vehicles.
A tourist said that a hotel room that usually cost Rs3,000 was available for Rs40,000. The hotel owners charged Rs1,000 for turning on the heater for just an hour.
After hearing true stories of how Muree hotels overcharged people, how muree locals charged heavily for chains, for moving vehicles, how things were overcharged..how no one cared as people died on road, I decided not to visit Murree or Galiyat ever again in my life. Future trips would be too great hospitality areas of KPK, Kashmir and GB. I starts boycotting the Muree campaign and I would like all those owners who have their hands in the death of innocent people, all the locals who could have helped them but no one did…as this is the least I can do to expose them and make sure no such incident happens in future InshaAllah.Friends and Family members also requested to support my Case#boycottmuree – Netizen said
