Murree is located 60 kilometres north of Islamabad on the N75 Islamabad-Kohala Highway at an elevation of 7,500 feet. It is an ideal escape for anybody seeking a short vacation to the highlands.
Murree is also considered to be a perfect destination for a honeymoon, and if you are planning for one, then you should choose from a wide variety of Murree tour packages available online. Here are some of our favorite locations to visit in Murree the next time you go.
Pindi Point is a hilltop located around a ten-minute journey from Mall Road. It’s a difficult walk, but once at the top, you could relax and take in the sights of the valley’s beautiful green peaks, with Islamabad/Rawalpindi being visible in the distance. Try the 1.5KM chairlift to Bansara Gali for getting back from the hilltop.
Bhurban is a great place to escape from the noise and commotion of Murree’s main cobbled streets. It is located 15 kilometres from Murree on one of the main routes heading to Kashmir Valley. There are luxury resorts here to accommodate you, such as the Pearl Continental and peaceful hiking paths with a wealth of flora and animals.
Patriata, sometimes known as New Murree, is located fairly far from the central Murree. It might take over an hour to drive from Murree to Lower Topa. Even though it is a little further away, the 7-kilometer chairlift and cable car journey, cold air, and peaceful woodlands make the journey worthwhile. There will be many monkeys and perhaps a mountain leopard here as they’re known to hang out in this region.
Mall Road is Murree’s most well-known bazaar and the finest spot to sample the hustle-bustle of the town. The market is generally open until 3 a.m., and the avenue is constantly crowded with locals and visitors. There are stores selling everything from stunning local handcrafted shawls and jewelry to toys and footwear. You can also relax at one of the many restaurants providing wonderful cuisine.
Kashmir Point will perhaps give you the finest views in Murree. It is easiest to walk there from Mall Road, which will require about 20 minutes. Visit Kashmir Point to see the spectacular peaks of Kashmir; on a clear and sunny day, you might be able to see K2 as well.
Rawat is yet another scenic place in the Murree region, and it is home to several well-known villages. Also, the Rawat district is widely recognized for providing basic healthcare in the event of an emergency due to several health centers staffed by a large number of expert physicians.
The Galliyat is very significant in the Murree Region, and Nathiagali is the most famous Gali in Murree. Nathiagali is 35 kilometres between Murree and Abbottabad and is located at an elevation of 8400 feet. Furthermore, Nathiagali provides breathtaking sights of the snow-capped mountains of Kashmir and Kohistan. The massive peaks of Nanga Parbat may very well be viewed in clear weather.
Many hotels and resorts are available to service the many visitors who visit Ghora Gali. The delicious, delectable cuisine combined with the breathtaking scenery is a once-in-a-lifetime event. It is 5547.9 kilometers above sea level.
The Ayubia is the second most frequently visited location after Nathiagali. It is the greatest picnic place in Murree since it also has the Ayubia National Park, which is 1,050 metres above sea level. It is also distributed across 3,027 metres at the mountain peaks inside the valleys.
A new lake called Samundar Katha Lake has just been recognized. It is a few kilometers from Nathiagali and makes for an interesting picnic location with your loved ones. Tourists may participate in various activities such as zip-lining, boating, horseback riding, and several other water activities.
