Margalla Hills, Islamabad
(4.7/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
At the end of winding roads and hairpin turns, Margalla Hills rewards with sweeping views of Islamabad. A perfect setting for hiking, this well-kept national park in the midst of the Lesser Himalayas also features chairlifts and various rock-climbing spots, while city-based clubs organize paragliding and hang gliding activities. With excellent restaurants overlooking the city panorama, the park provides a popular escape from the city for both locals and foreigners. Keep your eye out for wildlife, such as monkeys and rare birds.
