000024449 520__ $$aThe case study relates the impact of a mountain road on a location of astounding beauty, Fairly Meadows in Raikot Valley, which leads up to the north face of Nanga Parbat in the northern areas of Pakistan. The study covers the interesting possibilities for tourism for community development. In analysis, the sociopolitical circumstances in this valley are complex. The road, built by an outside entrepreneur in exchange for access to the forests for logging purposes, is looked at from the negative and positive aspects in terms of tourism in the remote regions. 

Tourism of itself is seen as a positive force; if it conforms to the dictates of carrying capacity it can be environmentally sustainable, economically beneficial, and culturally unobtrusive. Current environmental degradation stems from social conflict and economic exploitation by timber contractors, private developers, and the government. By addressing the environmental and socioeconomic manifestations stability can be restored, however. To do so, a tourism plan is needed as well as key interventions to undertake infrastructural rehabilitation, area and sector development, effective policy implementation, and sustained advocacy.

The case study is complemented with an interview with a local leader, photo plates, and maps.
