“A must for every adventurer”
Review of Margalla Hills

Margalla Hills
Ranked #1 of 66 things to do in Islamabad

Reviewed 19 January 2018

There are a number of treks for the intrepid walker and they are rated for length and difficulty. I went of Trail 5 which I was told was the easiest. It started well but toward the end got steeper and stepper. I was exhausted by the end. Well worth doing but goodness knows what the more difficult trails are like.

The walk was interesting, if you go early in the morning you find small animals there. It will be better if you have some information about the flora and fauna of this area. Some good Restaurants are there at the top of the hill.

Lovely foothills of Himalayas. You can take trail 3 or 5 to the top. Enjoy the serene environment. Take Uber or Careem to trail 3 on margallah road near F 6. A 3 hours hike will take you to Monal Restaurant where you can have a hearty meal. You can climb down or try to find a cab to come down. On your way back stop at Damian e Koh.

So close to the capital, Margallah hills national park offers a great retreat into nature. There are multiple hiking tracks in the hills. Track 3 is the most known one and used primarily for jogging & exercising enthusiasts. Track 5 has also lately been more frequested and leads to a spring. It is pretty good for a family hike as well. Track 6 is the latest addition that leads to a clearing / small pasture up in the hills before Jabbi village. Track 4 is for mountain bikes and starts from the same point as track 6 but then leads to Pir Sohawa road. Track 2 is a shorter, steeper track that starts from Jungle hut on Pir Sohawa road and ends at Daman-e-Koh view point.

Track 3 & 5 both can be used for a hike all the way up to Pir Sohawa.

All in all, these tracks offer great bird watching opportunities. Particularly track 5 & 6 as these are relatively less frequented than track 3. Indian Tree Pie and Khaleej Pheasant can be spotted rather easily along with monkeys and boars. During rains, there are multiple streams and ponds along track 5 & 6.
