Ehsanullah Advocate, a local leader, expressed his optimism that the project will promote tourism in the Ushirai Dara region, which has been previously hidden from the eyes of tourists due to the lack of a proper road.

Saidgai Lake is a historical landmark located at the end of Ushirai Pass, and every year hundreds of tourists come from Ushirai Dara and other areas to see it, walking a distance of seven to nine hours.
