Pir Sohawa is a small mountain town in KPK Province, just outside Margalla Hills National Park. The road passes through MHNP and is pretty good all the way, even much beyond Pir Sohawa.

For those living in Rawalpindi and Islamabad Pir Sohawa may not have much to offer but if you are visiting twin cities and want to go around a simple track that leads to a lush green point with a view to the city below for an evening tea, smokes or just for the heck of it. This is your place.
