Surely cherat is a very healthy enviremental area...we the villagers should play their part in the development of this area coz its really a place to visit ...Government should put some attension to make it a hill station. but unfortunately army is occupying this area day by day and even covering the area and stoping people's movement. Best wishes and long live Khattak... Fazal Qayyum
