A scenic town in Pakistan, Nathia Gali is famous for its thick and deep pine, walnut, and oak forests, where fog in July/August presents glory. In winter snowfall adds to the scene. It is the most picturesque hill station near Abbottabad and Murree. From Nathia Gali you can take many short strolls through the pine forests. The natural scenery is highly attractive.

The Nathia Gali region is home to various wildlife. It is home to a near-extinct Common Hill Leopard in the forests of the Ayubia National Park, right by Dungagali and Nathia Gali.

It is approximately 9452 feet (2,800 meters) above sea level. Trek to Mushkpuri top starts from Nathiagali spiraling upward through green pine forests. It is a 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) climb.
