    Head of Department, Tourism Mrs Akhale Khamo said Dzükou valley is not only a hot spot destination for foreign and domestic tourists and locals but it is also an educational institute for an environment.

    Stating that Dzükou valley has become the most visited place in the state, she stressed on the need to preserve the valley.

    It may be mentioned that SAYO had started the task of cleaning the valley since last month, where local volunteers had worked tirelessly to clear the plastic debris from all the areas of the iconic valley.
