(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.

  • I visited woth my best friend and get a wonderful pleasure i always recommend this palace when i come to islamabad 
  • Some free time in Islamabad we have used to take a ride in the Margalla hills. To do this we have rented a car with a driver at Hotel and us through traffic from Islamabad (not comparable to well structured as in Germany...) run in the hills above the city. It was a good decision for the car with a driver as well as for the trip, because it has beautiful views over the city and can enjoy as well the Pakistani cuisine. The restaurants "La Montana" and the "Le Monal", which offer a beautiful view in addition to tasty cuisine are a recommendation in all cases.
