(added few years ago!)

A famous viewpoint in the middle of Margallah Hills north of Islamabd, Daman-e-Koh found its name from conjunction of Urdu & Persian words: Daman, which means center and Koh, which means hill.

So it is Daman-e-Koh meaning center of the hill.
Its elevation is about 2400ft from sea level & is a popular destination for the residents as well as the visitors to the capital.
Another higher viewpoint after it is Pir Sohawa which is located at the top of Margalla Hills at an elevation of about 3600ft. 
During winter, Monkeys are a common sight & Cheetahs are frequently reported to descend from higher hills of Murree during snowfall.
