Kashmir Point

Reviewed By Mushtaq M - Islamabad, Pakistan

Snow covered Kashmir Point is more than wonderful experience. Light snowfall added the joy.
Enjoy scenic view of snow covered Mountains of Kashmir while walking on 700 m walking track around Government House.
Keep extra socks and if possible extra shoes in your car as your shoes and socks will soon become wet in the snow.

Patriata Chair Lift

Reviewed By waqarsarwar - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

The chairlift ride covers some really amazing scenic views of the locality. However, purchasing the tickets for the ride is a difficult job because its too crowded for most part of the year. However, waiting in queues for the tickets is worth it. As the area is too crowded, keep a special eye on youngsters and children.

Reviewed By SalmanLondon - London

This is most impressive building in whole of Islamabad. Beautiful architecture and well worth the visit. We went there before sunset and enjoyed the views both in daylight and twilight.
I went there after 30 years and was a bit disappointed to see that the crescents on minarets and the central projection were very rusty and not as shining as they once used to be. The main prayer hall opens for the regular prayers. There is a nice souvenir shop near the stairs for magnets, etc.

Margalla Hills

Reviewed By Graham B - London, United Kingdom

There are a number of treks for the intrepid walker and they are rated for length and difficulty. I went of Trail 5 which I was told was the easiest. It started well but toward the end got steeper and stepper. I was exhausted by the end. Well worth doing but goodness knows what the more difficult trails are like.

the Mall Muree

Reviewed By taimoorsalmanzahid - Lahore, Pakistan

I hate murree so much now! Where was the murree of my childhood with the Cathedral open to all and the historical places easy to access.
It seems the only good thing about it now is a motorway to the hill station and throngs of people. If you do plan on staying there stay in hotels outside the town and not on the mall. Most of them are shabby and expensive
