Margalla Hills National Park, is located in the foothills of the Himalayan range. The topography is rugged, with numerous valleys and many steep and even precipitous slopes. The area is drained by the River Kurang and its tributaries, which flow into the River Soan. Margalla Hills are unique in Pakistan, being rich in Sinohimalayan fauna, some species (especially birds) of which are at the western extremity of their distribution. The park is also a sanctuary for the Gray Goral, Barking deer and the Leopard.
Margalla Hills Park provides an excellent opportunity for bird watching. A Cheer Pheasant hatchery has been established at Chak Jabri and Dhok Jewan to raise captive Cheer pheasants that have become extinct in the hills. These are then released in the wild. Watch more about the park here.
Deosai National Park–at 4,114 m (13,497 ft) above sea level is the world’s second-highest plain. The snow cover that lasts much of the year makes access rather difficult, but in spring and summer it comes alive with an endless sea of alpine flowers. The area is known for its wide variety of both plant and animal species, from colorful butterflies to marmots and wild horses. No description, however, can do justice to this other worldly place under the shadow of K2, Nangaparbat and other aspects of Himalaya.
