How to get there

Make a road trip out of it! Nathiagali is about a two-hour drive from Islamabad and is located between Murree and Abbottabad.

What to do

Take a leisurely stroll through the main bazaar, visit the picturesque wooden St. Matthews Church, a remnant of the town’s colonial past, enjoy horseback riding or, if you’re in the mood for adventure, trek up the Muskhpuri peak that leads through Dungagali to the Ayubia National Park.

Where to stay

A charming guesthouse located right at the end of town, Gali’s End is an exclusive private property tucked away from the bustle yet close enough for you to enjoy all nearby attractions. The resort offers independent apartments with up to four bedrooms.
