It gives me immense pleasure to announce the first ever website of the Government of Gilgit Baltistan, this being the time of many firsts for our beautiful region. Here, we are dedicated to creating a healthy, safe and educated environment to fuel prosperity and enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors alike. This endeavour by the Tourism Department is in fact a first step towards creation of another forum for us to realize our goals, which is the E-Government. We dream to put into reality the goal of putting all our citizens online in the next 10 years and connect them with their government through technology, a goal which is very close to my heart. At this occasion I wish all my fellow citizens to cherish the freedom to learn and experiment, to fall and to rise again and of the utmost importance, the chance to prosper. Let us all benefit from the opportunities that we have had and strive to spread the same for thousands of our less fortunate brethren. Let us all invest our time and energies in learning new technologies for the benefit of our communities.

Gilgit Baltistan is a land like no other. It is a place of immense beauty, diverse cultures and hundreds of years old traditions of hospitality and warmth. The political empowerment has given us our rightful place amongst the people of Pakistan, and as an equal people we are proud to showcase our treasure of natural wealth. This website is an important step in introducing the government of Gilgit Baltistan to the rest of the world. I have browsed through its pages and am pleased to see the information and services provided. I encourage you to travel around this website and see all that Gilgit Baltistan has to offer. Do not hesitate to comment, criticize or contact us , as I have directed my team to be responsive to all new ideas and to come up with the best possible E-services for our people.

Thank You for visiting us online.
