EcoD Pakistan Meetup | Islamabad


So we were together for the EcoD Pakistan Meetup during the second week of March 2017. Initially, we were expecting an official meetup from IBM perhaps we wait for that up to a long time and finally we decide to let’s do that together. : – )

Our Karachi team arrived in Islamabad from the early morning flight and they join us in Ramada Hotel Islamabad where we were covering the STEM event by IBM;

So, after executing that we move to Hotel Margalla Islamabad to did the check-in. And we got some good rooms;

 And then we were on our way to Nathia Galli;

Most of the roads were full of snow and many of them were block from many places;

At Nathia Galli we really enjoyed the Snow Falling. Especially for our Karachi Team, this was the most memorable moments as they never saw Snowfall in Karachi. BTW, we really missed Rijaa, one of our Team member who was unable to come;

And after spending whole day at Nathia Galli we move Back to Murree to do a team dinner;

So finally we end our day#1 with a wonderful dinner at Murree Mall road and then move back to the hotel.

The Day#2 was started with the solid plan of Hiking. The whole Team moves to trail 5 at early morning and after the few hours the hiking ends up at The Monal in Peer Sohawa Islamabad;

There we take some rest and move to Daman-e-Koh. Where we did lot of Party together;

After spending some time there, we move to F-7 Markaz to eat something at Safa Gold Mall and Hardee’s;

Everyone was so much tired due to hiking. So we did rest at the hotel and then go to Blue area for dinner. There we take Savor and Pizza from ‘Tehzeeb Bakers’.

And finally, we move back to Hotel and that’s how we end the Day#2;

On Day#3, our Karachi Team has the flight of early morning. And we drop them at Airport with a lot of best wishes and memories.

So that’s how we were done from a wonderful meetup that stays with us throughout our life.
