Murree in Winter
Kashmir Point is a spot on Mall Road, going up from GPO about 1 km. It is at the top of a hill. Hill surface is clean. Scenary looks beautiful from here. Kashmir peaks can be viewed from here thats why this point is called Kashmir Point.
2 roads/paths go up the GPO towards Kashmir Point. View of Murree from both ways is different. So it is advisable that take one route for going & other for coming back.
You may hike up the Kashmir point. The way passing by the Cadet College Murree goes towards the Murree Residence of the President of Pakistan.
Patriata New Murree
New Murree is about 15 kilometer away from main Murree hills on the Lower Topa side. It is a well developed hill station with great high rised trees, beautiful hills.
A world class chair lift & cable car system takes you from New Murree to Patriata. Total ride is about 7 km long. New Murree is on ground level between the hills. Here you have to buy the ticket for Chair Lift + Cable Car which is Rs. 170/- (almost $ 3/-) then a chair lift ride takes you to a middle hill. From there Cable car takes you to Patriata Hill. The Chair Lift & Cable Car journey is memorable of life time. You can witness lots of great scenaries of near & far hills. In winter all hills are covered with snow while in summer lush green scenaris could be seen.
You can watch Kashmir mountains from middle Hill where Chair Lift takes you. You may stay here for some time & enjoy Tea/Coffee or just walk around. Then Cable car takes you to even more high hill. Walk freely everywhere. Just walk in the direction where most of the tourists are going. Straight road takes you to the highest point of the hill. Where scenary is panoramic. On one side you can watch Murree Hills & on the other side snow covered Kashmir Hills.
You may ride a horse but ASK/FIX CHAGES before leaving otherwise they will charge you too much. Similary don't hire a guide within patriata. People will come around you like they are helping you in taking pictures but then they ask huge amount for those services. A boy took couple of my pictures with my wife & demanded Rs. 300/-
Private car from Murree charges about Rs. 800/- (almost $ 15/-) for return journey. Driver will leave you at the gate of TDCP PATRIATA RESORT at New Murree & then take you back to Murree when you've finished.
Address: TDCP Patriata Resort, New Murree
Feeding to Monkey
There is a spot on Murree-Nathiagali Road, near Ayubia Chair Lifts, called "Baander Point". In this area great number of monkeys live in the jungle. They are so friendly that they come on the road and take food items directly from a person's hand. They do not harm by any means.
While returning from Nathiagali. Our driver, who was also a guide, stopped the car there. He was carrying some nimko or popcorns. He sat on the roadside and monkeys ate all from his hand. Then I did the same.
Directions: Near Ayubia Chair Lift spot, Main Nathiagali Road.
Chair lift at Nathiagali
Four hill stations, namely, Khaira Gali, Changla Gali, Khanaspur and Gora Dhaka, are spread over an area of 26 kilometers and have been developed into a hill resort known as "Ayubia".
It is named after late Field Marshal Mohammad Ayub Khan, President of Pakistan at that time. The chairlifts provided at this place are a matter of great attraction. They take you above to the peak of forsted hills. Top point is called "Neelam View" because River Neelam of Kashmir can be viewed from here.
