A beautiful night had fallen in the capital. I was sitting on the stairs of Pakistan Monument in the heart of Islamabad. There’s this beautiful angle from where you can see the city’s all famous landmarks. Up on the hills a galaxy of lights from the famous restaurant Monal, the white pyramid and minarets of the Faisal Mosque and the illuminated triplet towers of Centaurs Mall. Not to mention the worth dying for night view of the city, which looks like all the stars from heavens have fallen on earth. Weather was absolutely marvelous. It had rained a little in the evening and a gentle, intoxicating breeze was blowing. This time, I had left home for Chitral, the valley famous for its beautiful landscape and colorful culture in the far north western region of Pakistan, close to Afghan border. I had come back from Skardu just a couple of weeks before. I hadn’t taken two trips in such a short time before. Alsoone of our friends excused himself a few days before. For some time I wasn’t sure if it’s a good idea to take this trip. But I listened to my heart and went on with it. So, on that beautiful night in Islamabad, we were sitting on the stairs of Pakistan Monument waiting for my cousin Haris who was to convey us to I-8 Markaz where the buses for Chitral were waiting for us. We were going to travel with Discover Pakistan.
