000011958 520__ $$aBeautiful Ayubia National Park (ANP) lies at 34o - 1' to 34o - 3. 8' N latitude and 73o - 22.8' to 73o - 27.1'E longitude. Its elevation ranges between 1050 to 3027 m. it spread over an area of 3312 hectares. The mean annual rainfall is well above 1500 mm in addition to precipitation received in the form of deep snow in winters. The Park supports three types of forest ecozones; sub tropical chir pine forest, moist temperate coniferous forest and sub alpine meadows. Among different tourist attraction places, Ayubia National Park is one of the highly fascinating spot in Pakistan. About 50, 000 people live in surrounding villages of ANP.  Every year more than 120,000 tourists visiting the park during summer season. During last few years tourists pressure create solid waste problems in the area. Hotels and restaurants generate 2940-3225 Kg/day, while 505-600 Kg/day waste is generated from summer resident houses. In ANP tourists, generate 3.38 to 3.84 Kg/capita/day solid wastes. That amount is alarming, because this amount is 3.1 to 3.22 times greater than the solid waste generated at national level per capita per day. Different health care centers generate 0.24 tons medical waste per month.
