Murree is a popular hill station, summer resort, famous tourist attraction and the administrative centre of Murree Tehsil Pakistan. It is located in the Pir Panjal Range, nearly 60 kilometres away towards the North of Islamabad and Rawalpindi.
An American journalist Camile wrote, that, “Everything and anything can happen in Murree. Romance is in the atmosphere; intrigue is in the air. The roads to this happy holiday’s resort embrace both the heaven and earth. In Murree it is easy to fall in love”.
Murree was once a charming colonial town nestled in the Himalayan foothills – but the last 15 years have seen rampant development and today Murree more closely resembles a litter-strewn overcrowded tourist resort. However it remains exceedingly popular with Pakistani families and still receives glowing recommendations from this demographic. For the international visitor heading further north to the Galis (e.g. Nathia Gali) may prove more rewarding. In summer it is cool – even chilly in the evening – while light rain is common. In winter Murree hides herself under thick blanket of snow, however few tourists visit at this time and most hotels and attractions will be closed.
