  • If you visit rawalpindi /islamabad, must visit this area, it is a lush green area,roads are little narrow but fully carpeted, u need to be skilled driver to drive on sharp elevated turn,plus car must be maintained well to take on pir suhawa. You can have very nice view of islamabad, try to visit this area in early evening or in early winter,as during this time, area change it look completely. Daman e koh also come on the way but my today trip made me totally disappointed, i visited that area around 8 pm, but first i got disappointed by gentry and then atmospheric condition,there was so much suffocation, may be because of tree discharging CO2 in night, i couldnt stay there more than 15 minutes,i didnt want to go in detail but i was not comfortable at all there with my family, day time may be different story
  • Awesome place very near to Islamabad city. Hilly area, lush green mountains, have tracks and trails to walk and workout. One may visit in day time or even evening.
