Margalla Hills Hiking Adventure

The Margalla is very easily accessible from Islamabad. However, these are quite large, steep hills and should not be underestimated. If you plan a walk to the top of the first ridge in winter then solid footwear, a large bottle of water and warm clothes are necessary.

There are many routes to choose from, some of which have been numbered by urban planners. More popular walks are Trail 3, Trail 5 and Zoo Trail. Google Earth is a good way to get started before you leave.

Steve P a TripAdvisor from the USA says that the trailsare well maintained, clean and not very “completed”. Basically, rough gravel and large stones partly stacked in steps for a long series of turns, which gives a great view from both sides when climbing. You can see the monkeys on the way up; take photos of people dropped, the city behind you and the greenery around you. Great trip!

Fashion And Shopping

Islamabad’s winters are simply incomplete without shawls and stole. There are many stores that sell greatcoats, but of course, you’ll have to check every store to find the one amazing item your wardrobe needs. The best way to find a piece that matches your style is to visit Centaurus Mall for an hour or two and visit each of these stores.

You should visit Super Market, Safa Mall and Centaurus Mall for good shopping experience. People from Lahore to Islamabad come to these market places to buy their clothing because Islamabad is the most modern place in the country.

Pir Sohawa

One of the amazing and most visited places of this type is “Pir Sohawa”. It is an ideal place to visit and decorate with the family for night outings, celebrations, parties and events. Pir Sohawa is basically a highland located 5,000 feet above sea level.

The most amazing thing about Pir Sohawa is that you can see all of Islamabad from its highest place. Many visitors take Serene Air Flights to Islamabad to visit Pir Sohawa in winter to enjoy their holidays.
