The KPCTA displayed brochures, banners, posters, booklets and pamphlets about the scenic spots, roads leading to the tourist destinations, hotels, hospitals, heritage sites and restaurants so the tourists and visitors could obtain required information at the tourist desk before departing to a specific tourist attraction in Swat and Malakand.
