Most enjoyable are the hikes on the many trails that have been expertly paved up the mountains. The trees, exotic birds, monkeys and other animals share the hilly paradise with the human inhabitants.
- The Faisal Mosque is the biggest mosque in Pakistan and was once the largest mosque in the entire world. The unconventional style of the mosque makes the structure unique. The mosque has been designed to hold 100,000 worshippers, making it the fourth largest mosque in terms of capacity. Faisal Mosque was built to represent a Bedouin tent and has an ample pyramidal space inside.
- The Pakistan Monument is located on the western edge of the Shakarparian. The area is higher in altitude so the monument can be seen from every direction. Pakistan Monument symbolises the unity among the people of the country. At the centre of the memorial, there is a flower made out of four large granite petals that represent the four provinces of Pakistan. Ingrained in the granite slabs are the drawings of historic places and prominent personalities of the country.
