Kharmang Valley, Gilgit Baltistan – The tranquil town of Khurramang is set to embark on a transformative journey of development and progress, as announced by Gilgit Baltistan’s Senior Minister for Planning and Development, Amjad Zaidi.

A significant milestone in the trajectory of Kharmang’s progress is the inauguration of the region’s first Women’s Degree College in Baltistan, a testament to the government’s commitment to empowering women through education.
Addressing the shortage of educators, the authorities have pledged to appoint close to 1,000 educational professionals, underscoring their dedication to fostering a nurturing learning environment for the youth.
As the sun sets on the horizon, the people of Kharmang stand poised at the threshold of a promising future, one that resonates with the echoes of development and prosperity, all under the visionary leadership of the government and the unwavering commitment of the community.
