“What's worth seeing near Islamabad?”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

A great place to spend an afternoon / early evening. Just a short drive north of the city (some people hike up), you get a great view of Islamabad. Good place for people-watching. There are several places to eat and drink. Slightly over-priced, but good nevertheless. I’m told you can see monkeys there, but there were none in sight the day I went.
