Matric English Essay A Visit to a Hill Station

"The best part of the beauty is that which no picture can describe".

My love of adventure is natural to me of course; the degree of love varies from person to person. My adventuresome one nature promoted me and a cousin of mine suggested visiting Murree Hills. Murree, a beautiful valley situated between the huge mountains of Himalaya range.

It was almost mid of July when we all cousins left for Murree. We enjoyed the whole journey from Lahore to Rawalpindi. We reached Rawalpindi at 10 o' clock. We rested for a while in Rawalpindi and purchased many things of daily needs.

We reached Murree at 2 p.m. the same day. The weather was gusty and dusty. The huge masses of clouds appeared in the winking of an eye. An inky darkness prevails everywhere. Cool wind was blowing Birds were diving up and down on the waves of cool breeze. And at that time, it seemed as if:

"Nature is standing in front of us in all its beauty and grace".

We put up at an old hotel "Sunny View". After having rested there for a while, we came out to have a view of Murree hills. The valley below hills looked like a great cup full of flowers and flowing streams. The beautiful flowers of eye catching colors were dancing in cool breeze and looking so beautiful, as the poet says;

"See how the flowers as at parade, under colors stand displayed."

Next day, we walked to Kashmir point and enjoyed ourselves with its scenic beauty. When it was dark, we made for our hotel. A gentle shower of rain began to fall. When it started-tipping it down, it also created a musical sound and that was the beauty and music of nature. After a while, it started raining cats and dogs and continued till late at night, but when it was dawn, the rain stopped.

After our breakfast, we went out to see Salami Sanatorium. Salami is a beautiful spot situated in a fine valley. There are fruit garden on slopes. On our way back, we crossed two fast moving streams. Their silvery water was clear and cool. The number of glowing colors looked as much beautiful as:

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with heart." (Helen Keller)

Next day, we went to Patriata, early in the morning. We enjoyed having a ride of chair-lift. It was an interesting ‘experience. Running clouds, blowing breeze and bird eye view of Murree Hills. It seemed like a dream.

In our ten days visit of Murree Hills, we enjoyed hiking, and did a lot of shopping from Murree Mall. These moments are unforgettable for me. Those days were most well-spent days of my life.

Beauty of Murree Hills left a lasting imprint on screen of my mind. It will be commemorating me of the switching beauty of Murree forever, because;

 "A thing of beauty is a joy forever; its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness”.
