Step Out and Explore the Wonders All Through Your Way to Nathia Gali
Nathia Gali situated in the north region of Pakistan, one of the picturesque towns lies with full glory. Nathia Gali is located in the Hazara division of KPK, Pakistan. It lies in the Galyat range, with many other neighbouring hill stations. This small town remains cooler than the rest of its neighbouring hill stations. And the reason is being its height. Nathia Gali lies above all its neighbouring resorts.
If you’re planning to visit Nathia Gali from Islamabad/Rawalpindi, it will take around 2 hours to reach this colourful destination i.e. it’s around 84.4km. And when you’re planning your tour on a weekend, be ready to face jam-packed traffic. So plan wisely.
Reaching your destiny, you’ll bypass Murree, Barrian, Khaira Gali, Changla Gali, Kuza Gali, Dunga Gali and Ayubia. All these crossing points are worthy for your time. One more place you don’t want to miss out is the Ayubia National Park. Make your journey a little more exhilarating, take a right turn towards Ayubia, when you’re heading towards Nathia Gali. There are plenty of restaurants, hotels and shops. And then it gets more exciting when you take a trip on Ayubia’s chairlift. More than a chairlift, you might want to spare some time for the trek. The trek starts from Ayubia and ends in Dunga Gali. The distance covered between these two points is around 4km. Not hard to cover, you’ll definitely enjoy the pleasant environment of the trek and once you reach the other end, you’ll see and learn a little more about Dunga Gali. And a little more walk and you’ll learn the history behind its name.
Once you’re all done with the detour, you’ll finally reach your long-awaited destiny, the Nathia Gali. If you’re planning to stay for a night or two, you’ll find a number of hotels and resorts. Hotel Elites, Retreat Hotels, and Shangrila Pines are some of the notable hotels here in Nathia Gali. But as of some reviews, I wouldn’t suggest a booking to Shangrila Pines. Hotels Elites and Retreat Hotels are two of the coolest inns to make your trip worth remembering. Then if you don’t plan to stay for a night, you might want to park your car, take a short tour to the Bazar, fill your tummy with some lavish cuisine and enjoy the cool weather and beautiful scenes.
If you’re hungry for more, you can take a walk up the hill to Kala Bagh and Green Spot. One more place you can visit is the Governor’s House. Although, you can’t enter the Governor’s House, but with permission you can step in and take pictures of this beautiful place. More places will encounter as you step ahead or move a little right or left. One day trip, and you can make your day impressive and uplifting.
To keep the memories alive for long, don’t forget to take pictures of the striking places and also don’t forget to take home the souvenirs from the worth-sightseeing places.
