    Abbottabad maintains high levels of education. Its institutions are renowed throughout Pakistan and its literacy ratio is much higher than the rest of Pakistan. Several engineering trips are taken to this region from areas like Lahore, etc.

    Trekking towards Shimla Hill

    by fashionapple Written Jan 10, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you come to Abbottabad then you should not miss a trip to beautiful Shimla Hills to get over view of entire valley and nearby hill resorts. You can trekk , walk or hire a local suzuki.

    Children can enjoy rides in park while elders can have a cup of tea or coffee along with snacks in open air restaurant.

    Shimla Hills in Abbottabad are natural but the ones in Lahore are man-made. Also do not confuse Shimla hills in Abbottabad with Shimla in India.
