Mukshpuri – Snow Hike
Islamabad – Dunga Gali
Galliat region with popular resorts of Murree and Nathiagali is very famous among the Pakistani tourists. The region is equally popular in summer as well as in winter. Mukshpuri above the small town of Dunga Gali is a peak with soft hiking to its top in summers while in winter, a snow hike is a good challenge for the hikers. We have designed an exclusive guided program, considering all safety & security measures on priority. A day trip with following program would be a memorable journey.
Mukshpuri at 2800m/9200f above sea level is picture peak above Dunga Gali, neighboring Miranjani ( Nathiagali ), the highest in the region. Located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the peak lies in Ayubia National Park. Its lower slopes are covered conifer trees while the top is flat and wide with superb view of surround hills and valleys.
Mukshpuri Peak can be approached from Nathiagali and Dunga Gali. It’s a steady 2-3 hours hike to the top. In the middle of the track, one may visit Lalazar Wildlife Park with a pair of Common Leopard and one Snow Leopard ( both in captivity / cage ).
An interesting account is available on internet about its etymology, which narrates that the name Mukshpuri is possibly derived from the Sanskrit words: Moksha (liberation) and Puri (city). Mukshpuri has a special significance for the Hindus because of the legends relating it to the Pandavas of the Mahabharata.
