    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Bring any kind of bags you like. There should not be any problem as far as bags are concerned.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: For winters bring maximum warm woolen clothes. Keep in mind that temperature falls below freezing point in winters. Jackets, Mufflers, Coats and Woolen caps are a must. Sandals are totally out in winter so bring covered warm shoes and ankle high shoes are nice option. Umbrella is a must because it may rain any time.

    For summer bring light clothes of light colors. Cotton stuff in light colors is prefered. Sandals are ideal and shoes should be light. No room for anke high shoes as temperature shoots to 40 degree centigrade in winters. Umbrella is nice option to save yourself from extensive heat.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Toiletries and medical supplies are easily available. But you may bring them as per your requiremenrts. Otherwise worry not as every thing is easily available. Sun block and sun glasses are recommended.

    Photo Equipment: Bring your digital cameras with you to capture natural beauty in Islamabad. If you bring still camera then let me tell you that its films are easily available.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Margalla hills are ideal for Camping, Trekking and Hiking. If you love adventure then bring your out door camping gear with you. You can even buy it from here but it would be expensive!

  • WHAT YOU NEED!!!!!

    Luggage and bags: It can get very hot in pakistan! You need certainly need to take body spray with you because you will start to sweat and smell because of the high temperature. But don't worry, you purchase body spray from Islamabad. You also need to bring special cream because so many people have mosqueto bites and can get a rash easily.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The clothes that you bring are very important. You need c tight.lothes that are not thin and not to tight! You don't need shoes,but bring wellingtons because it could get really wet!
    You need slippers because of the high temperature or sandles will do! You can bring an umbrella with you, but you certainly need to brind sunglasses.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can get pain killers if you want, but you can get all of your toiletries in Islamabad!

    Photo Equipment: Cameras and video cameras are a must!! Believe me, you wouldn't want to forget the beautiful sceneries like all those valleys and especially the rose garden. I find that place very romantic!!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you absoulutely love camping then you should take a tent with you. It would be a bit to much of a hassle to buy it from Islamabad.
    You certainly need a sun cap and sun cream, to protect you from all that heat. But believe me PAKISTAN IS DA BEST!!!!

    CAMERAS ARE A MUST!!!!!!
