British-era Moto tunnel restored in Pakistan
British-era Moto tunnel restored in Pakistan: The Pakistan Climate Change Department has opened a 129-year-old tourist motor tunnel after it was restored in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. The tunnel is part of a long forest walk in the Ayubia National Park in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.
‘Fire Tunnel’ built by the British. The water pipe runs through it and was probably built to solve a water problem in nearby Murray. Great 4 km walk from Dunga air to Ayubia. The tunnel was built to connect Ayubia with Khaira air. As the water pipe passes through it and the tunnel is used for water transportation, it is a completely flat flow in the tunnel. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, formerly known as the North West Province (NWFP), is one of the four provinces of Pakistan, located northwest of the country bordering Afghanistan. It was formerly known as the North West Province until 2010 when the 18th Amendment to the Constitution of Pakistan changed the name to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is the third largest province of Pakistan in terms of population and economy, even though it is smaller than the country. Within Pakistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa shares borders with Punjab, Balochistan, Azad Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan, and Islamabad. It constitutes 17.9% of the population of Pakistan, the majority of the population being Paktuns and Hindko speakers. This province is home to the ancient Gandhara kingdom. Once a stronghold of Buddhism, the region’s history is marked by frequent raids by various states as it is close to the Khyber Pass.
