Pakistan: Hiking and Islamabad

Metroblogging Islamabad on why the city has much to offer to hikers. “. Although many of the residents take advantage of this opportunity and regularly hike up and down trail-3 or at the most go bush walking, yet most of the youth are reluctant to explore more of it. There are many other tracks distributed in the Margalla hills waiting to be pitched.”

    Yes Agreed the area has so much to offer. I think there is a general reluctance of the pakistani society as a whole to take part in and enjoy the environment. This can only achieved by schooling and the parents themselves setting an example, but I fear that the inherent physical laziness of the average upper middleclass housewife does not allow this to happen.

    Omar u are right ! our country has so much to offer but its reluctance and laziness which keeping everything back if in schools interest is created its gonna be very beneficial !
