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.

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

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.

Dunga Gali Pine Line Track

Reviewed By CandyCritic - Ottawa, Canada

If you happen to find yourself in Pakistan, and you happen to have the means to travel to this fairly out of the way place, I highly recommend it. That would be after I suggest that you know the security risks, and plan accordingly. We can't get around the fact that wandering through Pakistani wildlife these days can be dangerous for foreigners. The trail itself is patrolled by police fairly regularly, although we spent our first half of the visit without seeing any police (then after that we saw at least 6 of them). The cost is a little steep compared to the locals price, about 15 rupees for locals and 200 for outsiders. Fortunately 200 rupees still isn't that much.
As for the trial itself, this is where the money is at. It's absolutely stunning. The views are spectacular, with nature and Mountains all around. There is a great deal of wildlife on the trail, including plenty of monkeys. While the air is thin being at such an elevation, the air is so clean and smells great compared to some of the local cities. The trail itself is very easy, almost completely level, and fairly well maintained (although I'm told in the colder months they don't clear the snow that well). The locals are fairly friendly, and always willing to help (likely for a fee), however if you want to explore on your own they're fairly easy to turn away.

Red Fort

Reviewed By KamranShaukatAliKhan - Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan

I'm bit disappointed to see such a historical place abandoned by the local govt. It should have been taken care like it deserves. The structure is mostly worn out and barely gives clues about time. It has been in use by several emperors of the time as strategic fort for wars, it was repaired and structured was altered by them. But today, it merely stands on it own. Almost a quarter of it is damaged. Some parts like gates etc. are belong to modern times instead. Local govt. should really consider a repair.

Pakistan Monument Museum

Reviewed By Saqib R - Lahore, Pakistan

An educational museum, right next to Pakistan monument. The museum has many exhibits that depict or recreate history of Pakistan movement. For example, there are statues / paintings of Jinnah, Allama Iqbal, Fatima Jinnah and other personalities from Pakistan movement. Kids must be taken to this place to acquaint them with the history of Pakistan.
