Visit Islamabad, A Paradize for your Holidays

Serving as the capital of Pakistan since the Sixties, Islamabad was built according to a carefully organized plan, divided into sectors along a grid of clean, tree-lined streets. The city is sheltered by the Margalla Hills, the foothills of the Himalayas and the home of rare species of leopard, deer, birds, and even porcupines. Several hiking paths end at Daman-e-Koh, a picnic spot with a splendid view of the entire city, including the massive modernist Faisal Mosque and even the Rawal Dam.

I was born and raised in Islamabad and the best thing i like about it is its laid back style. The natural beauty  surrounding the city is unique and the source of spiritual uplift for many people. If you are a health buff you can take a hike in the mountains surrounding the city. If you are a naturalist you can find many interesting placing to explore new species.

Islamabad was conceived by General Ayub Khan but it was brought to life by all of us Pakistanis.
