Balakot is a town located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa falling under the jurisdiction of Mansehra District. The town was little known before the earthquake of 2005 which severely affected the Balakot city resulting in a huge loss of life and property. It has an administrative status of a Tehsil overseeing a total of 12 union councils.
Balakot has a population of 273,089 as per the latest population consensus survey. A new Balakot city project was initiated by the Government of Pakistan with the help of the UAE Government. The new city is located 20km away from the old city which will be much safer in case of any other natural calamities occurring in the future. The city, however, remains a popular tourist attraction which serves as the main source of income for the locals.
