  • Always a pleasure visiting this place. Bird's-eye view of Islamabad from this place is awesome. Very calm and quiet place. Good picnic point. Bring your own food or buy from the stalls. Horse rides also available. Stay away from monkeys. They often attack tourists if they get too close.
  • Amazing view about halfway up margalla. Awesome viewpoint and cute little stalls for food and souvenirs. Beware of the monkeys, they are quite aggressive if you have food. Lots of hiking trails as well if you dare. Would definitely visit again.
