Murree is one of the largest resort towns in the Galyat area of Pakistan, and is the capital city of Murree Tehsil (which is an administrative division of the Rawalpindi District). It is situated on the southern slopes of the Western Himalayan foothills as they ascend to the northeast towards Kashmir. During British Rule in the nineteenth century, its altitude was established at 7,500 feet (2,300 m). Murree is accessible by road from the centre of the Islamabad and Rawalpindi areas. It is still associated with Britain; many British fruits (including cherries, raspberries and strawberries) thrive locally.

There is a church, built in 1857, located at the centre of the town, which is still used as a place of worship. Many houses around the church are still standing, functioning mostly as hotels. Old traditional restaurants have been replaced by fast food shops and newer restaurants. Some old places of accommodation, such as the Rich Villa Inn and Gulberg Hotel, have completely disappeared. A typical hotel usually provides a motel type accommodation with breakfast and communication access. Newly built hotels are also accessible. Murree has expanded since 1947 at a rate much greater than that which its infrastructure can sustain. Securing water and electricity has been a constant challenge. The jam-packed bazaar has caught fire a number of times in the last century, and the growth of tourism and a construction boom have had an adverse effect on the local environment.
Elevation 2,291.2 m (7,517 ft)
The main tribe of Murree are the Dhond Abbasi. Other tribes are the Syeds, Khawajas, Kethwal Rajputs, the Dhanyals, Awans, Jasgam, Satti, Baig, Janjua Rajpoot (mainly populated on eastern side of Murree) Qureshi Family, Mengiral Rajput and Barlas.
As well as being tehsil headquarters, Murree is also a Union council, it is bounded to the north by Darya Gali and Rawat, to the west by Ghora Gali, to the south by Numbal and Mussiari, and to the east by Ghel and Charhan.

Murree receives snowfall from the month of December to February in general. People enjoy snow falling a lot. When a snow fall news brake out Rawalpindi and Islamabad residents rush out to Murree. Some times  roads linking the valley with other parts of the country were closed due to heavy snow fall.
sozo adventure park at lower topa murree is offering a large number of free slides and rides of quite exciting for kids visiting the summer resort murree
 
We left at 11:15am and reached Sozo Park at 12:30am – courtesy of Murree’s insane traffic due to which we traveled 7kms in 75 minutes only to find out that entry ticket has been increased by 3.5 times to Rs. 350/-.
Kashmir Point is a spot on Mall Road, going up from GPO about 1 km. It is at the top of a hill. Hill surface is clean. Scenary looks beautiful from here. Kashmir peaks can be viewed from here thats why this point is called Kashmir Point.
2 roads/paths go up the GPO towards Kashmir Point. View of Murree from both ways is different. So it is advisable that take one route for going & other for coming back.
You may hike up the Kashmir point. The way passing by the Cadet College Murree goes towards the Murree Residence of the President of Pakistan.
