Mr. Lakomov was also entertained by traditional dancers who performed to the tunes of the local musical instruments.“I saw the young and the old dancing to the tunes. It was really an amazing performance. Let me say it’s really good to be here with them,” said the ambassador. “I came here to see for myself, the land, its culture, music and way of living. Now I am convinced it’s a safe and secure place for foreigners.”
Overwhelmed with the hospitality of the G-B people, Mr. Lakomov encouraged the foreign community to visit the region as it is now safe for the tourists and the mountaineering expeditions from world over.
The foreign delegates were later taken to various other historic places on the Karakorum Highway. The delegation also made a stopover at Sikanderabad, a point which marks the exact location of the collision of the Indian and Eurasian Tectonic plates which caused the creation of the Himalayas and Karakorum.
