Islamabad (Urdu: اسلام آباد) is the capital of Pakistan and has an estimated population of just over 1 million. It is located in the central northern parts of the country on the Potohar Plateau at an altitude between 500 and 600 metres above sea level. Together with Rawalpindi it forms one urban area, but Islamabad itself was only built during the 1960's to replace the former capital of Karachi.
Islamabad has a pleasant climate in general from September to March when it is usually dry and warm or even hot but with relatively low humidity. May and June however are very hot with temperatures regulary exceeding 40 °C, followed by the monsoon months of July and August when around 300 mm of rain falls in each month, combined with still high temperaturs. Winter nights bring occasional snowfall but not always and not much either as daytime temperatures still are just below 20 °C.
Islamabad International Airport (ISB) has a number of connections abroad, among which are those with the national carrier Pakistan International Airlines to Abu Dhabi, Bangkok, Beijing, Birmingham, Copenhagen, Dammam, Doha, Dubai, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Jeddah, Kabul, London, Manchester, Milan, Muscat, New York, Oslo, Paris, Riyadh, Tokyo and Toronto. Several other airlines serve mainly neighbouring countries.
