Shakarparian

Shakarparian information

Lonely Planet review

Known as Shakarparian, the urban wilderness south of Islamabad has an arboretum with trees planted by dozens of foreign heads of state, as well as sculpted gardens, and panoramas of Islamabad and Rawalpindi from the east lookout.

To get to the hill lookouts, get off the bus at the Zero Point stop, cross the road and follow a path for 20 minutes up the hill.
