Continental House is located in the heart of Islamabad. You can visit all the major tourist sites like Daman e Koh, Zoo, Blue Area, Secretariat, BariImam very easily due to short distance. Islamabad is a charming city where lush green hill backdrops and mild warm weather set it apart from other big cities in the region. A city, not for the night owls and party animals, but for the aesthetically inclined and to those drawn to the glory of nature.
Islamabad’s relative infancy as a major metropolis is reflected in the city’s architecture, which is modern - the influence of its first urban planner Constantinos A. Doxiadis is pretty evident – yet distinctly Islamic in appearance. The main Islamabad attractions include Shakarparian Hills, Murghzar Mini Zoo and Children's Park, and Rawal Lake.
Rising to 609 metres, this terraced garden offers sweeping vistas of surrounding hills, Rawal Lake, and the cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.
This is a man made lake that covers an area of 8.8 square kilometres and adjoins the Shakarparian Hills. It has in the recent past become a popular venue for picnics and gatherings.
Another low peak hilltop that has become a popular spot for picnics, the Daman-e-Koh also affords beautiful views of the city.
Murghzar Mini Zoo and Children's Park
Located at the foot of Daman-e-Koh viewpoint, the Murghzar Zoo has become a popular Islamabad attraction amongst children and adults alike. The Pakistan Museum of Natural History also has a display corner located in the zoo. The park is a gift to the children of Pakistan from the children of Japan.
The Lok Virsa (National Institute of Folk and Traditional Heritage) is dedicated to the preservation of the traditional culture of Pakistan. The institute’s museum, located near Shakarparian Hills, holds a vast array of items such as embroidered costumes, jewellery, woodwork, block printing, ivory and bone work.
