“View from the Top:Islamabad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

You can see Islamabad from the view point.Has been improved in the last few years.A short drive up in the hills.Literally means in the lap of the mountain.Electric car takes you to the view point.Few good restaurants there.Even a summit dinner was held here.

“Great Trip to The Mountains!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Daman-e-Koh means the crade of the hills (roughly translated, no deduction for accuracy please). There are two ways to reach Daman-e-Koh. One route is from the trekking routes which start at the bottom of the hills and it can take 45 minutes to 1 hour for you to trek into the hill and reach Daman-e-Koh. The other way is through a brilliant road to the top of the hills which is very windy and has some seriously inclined curves for which you should make sure that you go in the right car with the right tyres. Both rates are scenic and beautiful. It is strongly recommneded that if you are walking up the hill then you should try to get off the hills before sunset and the place might get dangerous. Again this place is a very popular weekend destination and get very crowded so a weekday should be fun and give you time to enjoy yourself and your family. There are some very good restaurants at the summit and if you travel a little further then there is Monal which is a must visit for anyone who comes to Islamabad.

“Renovated to good standards”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

It is a very old sight seeing viewpoint near Islamabad and was not in good hands until recently when in Pervez Musharaf's regime it was renovated and a new road was constructed. A nice place to chill around with family and have a nice overview of the capital city.
