Neela Sandh Picnic Spot – Islamabad’s Very Own Waterfall

Published on

It will sure be very surprising to even the residents of Islamabad and Rawalpindi that outskirts of Islamabad actually host a waterfall and adjoined natural swimming pools. This Waterfall runs throughout the year. Not only this, this is very beautiful place.

Neela Sandh Islamabad Pakistan is a picnic spot which is worth visiting, not only this, this is only 38 KM away from mainstream Islamabad city which is only about 55 Minutes drive. But as soon as you reach there, you will realize, you have been missing a very beautiful natural phenomenon in your backyard. As far as exact location is concerned, sit back and relax, we have got you covered today with pics, videos and maps. We will even be updating this page with more material, so make sure to bookmark it.

Now, first have a look on these few videos of Neela Sandh Picnic Spot.

Not only this Neela Sandh Picnic Point actually comprises of two identical water falls, each one have its on natural swimming pool. One waterfall on top and swimming pool is used by guy only visitors and other one is for families where normally women are seen swimming.

If you ever end up visiting there, make sure you use life jacket while swimming, as water is deep enough and it can be very risky to swim there without a life jacket.

Rest assured, this place must be visited at least once only for its sheer beauty, though this place is not very well known to people of Islamabad or rest of country. I guess that is also the reason, that its beauty and magic is very well protected up till now. As we humans have a tendency to ruin the natural beauty for different kind of gains.
