When you think of Pakistan, you might not think of skiing. Well, improved security has brought a revival of winter tourism to Pakistan's Swat Valley.
The region was under Taliban control for almost a decade; they declared skiing "un-Islamic."
In 2009, Pakistan’s army drove militants out of the valley and since then there has been a marked improvement in the security environment.
And now a swathe of local tourists are making the most of their mountains, and operators are hoping foreign ones will follow suit.
