A Journey to the Hill Station. I am a resident of Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. Lahore is a hot weather city during the Summer season. The summer is a cruel season. It brings with it the scorching sun and the burning winds. The plains of Pakistan become hot like hell. One dreams of hills, pines, and springs.
Last year, I had the good fortune of spending a few days in the Murree Hills away from the heat of Lahore. It was with a sense of great relief that, one morning, I boarded a bus for Murree. From Lahore to Rawalpindi it was a tiring journey.
After a short stop at Rawalpindi, the bus moved towards Murree. When we had traveled a few miles, we noticed the changing landscape. The road began to ascend gradually. Small mounds appeared on both sides of the road. Then came small hillocks. They were thinly grown with shrubs and small trees. journy
A great mist hung in front of us. Only the dim outlines of hills were to be seen. The driver told us that it was raining in Murree. It was my first journey to a hill station. I was very much excited. I wanted to see everything on the way. I looked out of the window of the bus.
The hills were covered with lofty pine trees. It was a beautiful scene. Suddenly, I noticed that the clouds were rolling towards us. The breeze was cool and damp. The driver switched on the lights.
It had become somewhat dark. When we reached Ghora Gali (a place in Murree), it began to drizzle. It was misty all around. The bus moved very slowly. In half an hour we reached Murree.
The drizzle had stopped, but the clouds were still there. Perhaps they were regrouping for the next shower. My cousin had come to receive me. We went straight to the house they had rented for the season.
Walking along winding roads and paths lines with fir trees we reached the house. After meeting my uncle, aunt, and cousins. I took some refreshment and prepared to go out but heavy rain began to fall, and I had to stay indoors.
My stay in Murree was for one week. It was a pleasant time. Murree is the most popular and modern hill station. It is situated at a height of two thousand and four hundred meters. The weather remained cool and pleasant.
We roamed through the pine-covered hills and drank from cool, sweet spring. Murree has everything that nature and man can give it. Nature has made it beautiful and graceful. Man has given it grand buildings and comfortable hotels.
