Pakistan is unique in several ways, with a rich history and cultural heritage. The country was the site for one of the world's earliest human settlements, the great prehistoric Indus Valley Civilisation, the crucible of ancient empires, religions and cultures. Islamabad is a city of wide, tree-lined streets, large houses, elegant public buildings and well-organised bazaars.
Traffic jams and crowds are rare, and narrow lanes and slums are few and far between. Sidewalks are shaded and safe behind rows of flame trees, jacaranda and hibiscus. Roses, jasmine and bougainvillea fill the many parks, and scenic viewpoints show the city to its best advantage. It is a modern and carefully planned city.
There are ample opportunities for walking, jogging, hiking and trekking around Islamabad in the Margalla Hills, which is a delight for those keen on short and long hikes. Islamabad is also known for its gardens, lakes, museums, the Zoo, art galleries and the flora and the fauna.
