Great that you were able to visit my ancestral land #SaltRange so soon after your arrival in 🇵🇰. It’s a land rich in history, culture, hospitality and martial tradition. #KatasRaj #Malot #KhewraSaltMines #KallarKahar are some of the marvels to explore and enjoy.
A wonderful Christmas hiking in the incredibly beautiful and diverse #SaltRange (completely out of 📵touch - how lovely ;)! And then a visit to the amazing @UNESCO #WorldHeritageConvention protected #RhotasFort on our way home. #BeautifulPakistan @PTEGPOfficial

No country can prepare for a #climate emergency of this scale. People need help now, that’s why on top of the $5 million, today we announced $25 million and a $3 million matching fund—for immediate relief, and to support rebuilding & recovery for the people of Pakistan.
