Peak season:

Indulge in some local cuisine and explore Pakistan’s rich culture when you take cheap flights to Islamabad. Located nine miles from the sprawling metropolis of Rawalpindi, the capital city is a great place to relax and enjoy serene accommodation. The five distinct seasons (winter, spring, summer, autumn and monsoon) determine when most travellers book their flights to Islamabad. The humid subtropical climate makes it best for sightseeing in March and April or September and October, when the temperatures are warm but not overbearing. Hiking is a popular reason to visit in the winter months when there is less rainfall, and the Margalla Hills give amazing views of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. A great time to find flights to Islamabad, if you want to immerse yourself in authentic Pakistani culture, is during the holidays and festivals. These are usually linked to the various religions practiced within Pakistan. One such example is the festival of Eid ul-Fitr which comes at the end of Ramadan.

Off season:

The summer months (May and June) can be extremely hot with temperatures regularly reaching over 38C. The subsequent monsoon (July and August) with torrential rain, thunderstorms and strong winds can disrupt sightseeing plans. If you score cheap flights to Islamabad during the hot season, there are cool mountain retreats such as Murree, a former British Raj mountain station, to escape the summer heat and the mosques can look imposing with a monsoon sky as a backdrop.
