Peer Sohawa is one of my favorite place in Islamabad. Its at much higher altitude of Margalla Hills and receive snowfall in winter. Weather is also much cool and area is peaceful.

There is a lot to do in Pir Sohawa: Hiking, Trekking, Camping, Picnics and for someone who wants to spend good money there is an upscale resort as well. There are small "dhabaa" and other small joints serving various foods and confectionery shops are also available to visitors. Overall a very very beautiful place, where I go on regular basis.
