Gulpur Falls

Gulpur Falls

Gulpur falls lie on the Mirpur-Kotli road between Gulpur and Narrh. This is the viewpoint for the Gulpur waterfalls, without a doubt one of the most beautiful places in AJK. These waterfalls, made more famous by photographs on this site, are visited by tourists from all over AJK and Pakistan. Unfortunately, the local people have turned this viewpoint into a rubbish tip. Local vehicles and commercial lorries arrive here to dump large amounts of rubbish everyday. The authorities stay apathetic and leave this beautiful place to be turned into an ugly hell.

Further along, there is a road that turns off from Hajiabad (near Sehnsa) and goes to Dadyal via Blo. Travelling from Hajiabad to Blo, you see some of the most breathtaking sceneries with thick jungles consisting of pine trees and other plants. However, about 2-3 miles from Hajiabad, right in the middle of the jungle, people have started to dump large amounts of rubbish. It seems that lorries are also dumping commercial rubbish here at night. The local authorities stay silent and allow this henious crime against Kashmir to continue.

Brother Razaq, I suggest you take this matter to your MLA immediately. Demand to have this pratice stopped to save the environment and save our country. You can also try to go and see the DC in Kotli. IMO you need to go in a group to have some impact with these people. If all this fails then you need to make a peaceful protest. Get together and demonstrate at this site and then demonstrate through he streets of Kotli. If we do not save our country from these illitrate bureacrats, our children will inherit a pile of rubbish.

salaam can i take the opportuniy to correct u bhai Hanif, its not the locals who dump the rubbish here all the rubbish dumped here is done by municipal dept. from kotli which is exactly 14 miles away ...they dump here every few days from a lorry ....we the locals have informed the police but they turn a blind eye ....they used to dump it by baraali but unfortunatly they started dumping here now ...the local authority have been informed too but no action has been taken...you could say its the local authority who are dumping here...namely kotli municipal dept.

What is the police doing to stop this? What are the local authorities doing to stop this? Zilch, I bet.
