Undoubtedly, Pakistan is one of the most beautiful countries on the planet. This beautiful land comprises an assortment of places. When it comes to breathtaking landscapes and mind-blowing sceneries, Pakistan is absolutely matchless.

This wonderful country is blessed with four seasons. During the winter season, heavy snow fall hits many areas of the country resulting in formation of captivating and enthralling snow landscapes. Every year, large number of people rush to these places to see snowfall and one of the most beautiful place to enjoy snowfall is Malka-e-Kohsar  Murree – Bhurban.

I am going to pen down my amazing experience that I had during my visit to Murree-Bhurban in the mid December, 2017. Fortunately, I witnessed the beautiful snowfall that blankets Murree and Azad Kashmir during this winter season in the country. Literally, it was an overwhelming experience for me. A large number of tourists, mainly from twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, thronged to Malka-e-Kohsar Murree to enjoy the first snowfall of the season.

The beautiful weather turned more pleasant when Murree received its first winter rainfall. The tourists including me got excited when rain water turned into snow and started to blanket the landscape.

Moona Mehtani – A tourist from Hyderabad shared her experience “I had never got this opportunity.” “It is a blessing to have natural beauty in different regions.”

Umaima from Karachi said, “I have seen snow fall after 16 years so it was a wonder experience for me, I along my friends really enjoyed it.”

In short, Pakistan is beautiful, it is utterly blessed. Pakistan is endowed with a rich and varied flora and fauna. Especially, Malka-e-Kohsar Murree is the real beauty of Pakistan. You must go there for at least once in your life time. It sure is an unforgettable place to visit.
