Pir Sohawa is a beautiful scenic spot about an hours drive from Islamabad on the Margallah hills. It is a beautiful and scenic drive and you get excellent view of Islamabad from the hills. You can get food at Pir Sohawa or take you own for a picnic in the pine trees.

I visit Pir Sohawa quite often and it is one of the most visited and my favorite places in Islamabad. It gives you a beautiful view of Islamabad and weather of Pir Sohawa is usually cold even in Summer. Everyone should visit this place, especially after rain.
