Islamabad is a city located at the foot of a mountain. It attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists with its numerous landmarks and the activities it offers, rock-climbing included. Margalla Hills is one of the best destinations for that. The names of the peaks, which are a part of the hills, are very poetic and charming - Jasmine Corner, Jungle Rock, and Legacy Wall. There are several companies that offer rock climbing tours to guests of Pakistan, and Terichmir Travel is one of the best in this field. It offers different routes depending on the wishes of its clients. For example, Trail 2 is the best choice for everyone who wants to visit Daman-E-Koh viewing point. As this area has become home to numerous monkeys, locals informally call it “the trail of animals”. The walk will take 1 – 2 hours. Participants reach the viewing point and then can walk somewhat further to see a hidden gem – the remains of 202 AirBlue airplane. Trail 3 is the most popular choice, but travelers need to keep in mind that this trail has many stiff slopes. Having reached Daman-E-Koh, vacationers can continue their walk and visit Pir Sohawa. There are three restaurants that are great for relaxing and having a light meal. Trail 5 also reaches Pir Sohawa, but this trail is quite complex and it is easy to get lost there. That being said, it is better to explore Trail 5 together with a guide. However, experienced rangers can try to do that alone. Rawal Lake, which is located not far from … Read further
