The first place in mind when you start thinking about the beauty of Pakistan is the most famous tourist resort Murree. It is synonymous to holidays, summer resorts, green hills, pine trees. It is a place that has something to offer to every age group in any season be it the green fresh summers or snow covered winters, captivating mountain views, sunsets or the roaming clouds. One can never get tired of going to Murree and enjoy its beauty.
The easiest and most beautiful way to reach to Murree is via road but then again you don’t have any other choice since there is neither airport nor any station in Murree. But you don’t want to miss the scenic beauty on the roadside anyway. Taxis and buses will take you to Murree in an hour or so but you should prefer to travel via your own vehicle so that you can stop anywhere you want to along the way, have a cup of tea or bhutta (the corn) which is YUMMY:D and take lots of photographs to make your trip a memorable one. You will have beauty everywhere all along the way.
When in Murree you don’t need to go to specific locations to enjoy yourself. Where ever you look, you will find green mountains, flowers, snow(depending on season) and hustle bustle everywhere but still there are some spots which are tourists favorite and once you are there you should definitely visit them. One of the most famous places is the Mall road; it is famous for the NEWLY WEDDED couples walking together hand in hand and the youngsters teasing them and what else…. Yes, you can shop and eat a variety of things from local food to KFC everything is available.
As far as the plants are concerned, Pine trees are found almost everywhere in Murree, the air is filled with the refreshing scent of pine,… cherries, raspberries and strawberries dwell locally and it is fun to eat them off from plants by yourself as you walk and enjoy.
Murree has a variety of handicraft shops selling curios for the tourist to remind them of their visit to this hill station. Traditional colorful clothing items , head wear, carved walking sticks, jewelry items and leather goods are abundantly available and are a must buy for every tourist.
I would say Murree is a must visit tourist destinations where we have all domestics sorted out. We can see nature, get comfortable hotel, eat all kinds of food and do hiking etc. Weather visiting from others cities of Pakistan or from another country, your first stop to enjoy your holidays to the fullest should be none other than Murree, the Queen of Hills.
