Trail 5, Islamabad
It is right there at the edge of the city so you can have a hike early at the sunrise and go to your office by 9. Trail 5 has one of the best views of the city and some amazing small waterfalls. Better watch out for monkeys as they have a habit of stealing food items right out of people’s hands.
Dunga Gali Pine Line Track
The walk in the evening and near sunset makes the sun shine on mountains in such a way that it turns them golden. There is a ditch on one side and a mountain on the other full with pine trees. The trail is wide enough and not steep so the trek is quite easy.
Trail 3, Islamabad
It is the famous trail that starts from the edge of the capital and ends at the top of near Pir Sohawa, which gives the amazing view of the whole capital. Along the whole way you do get glimpses of the green capital from different angles. Some bushes on the way have thorns so just don’t go running into them.
