The hilltop garden and viewing point known as Daman-e-Koh may be found in the Margalla Hills' heart, north of Islamabad. The name is derived from the combination of two Persian words that, when read together, signify 'foothills.' It is roughly 500 feet from Islamabad and approximately 2400 feet above sea level.

Because of its high-quality restaurants, superb cuisine, live music, hiking paths, and lavishly forested hills, it is a popular tourist destination for those from the surrounding area and people from further afield.
