Abbottabad - the world's most talked about city

Osamas_AbbotabadThe world's most talked about city these days is a small, picturesque town in northern Pakistan - Abbottabad. Its claim to fame is that it was the last address of the world's most wanted man - Osama bin Laden.

The "million dollar luxury house" as claimed by US authorities is in fact a relatively modest $250K house in a middling neighbourhood of Abbottabad, a city located about 100 kilometers by road from the capital, Islamabad. The house has aready beceome a tourist attraction and both international media and local residents can be seen taking pictures of it.


Abbottabad nestles 4,000 ft above sea level and has a cool, refreshing climate which attracts tourists from across Pakistan in the summer. The nearby Ilyasi Mosque which is built on a mountain spring also brings in tourists who are amazed by the cool water of the spring that is used for wudu (ablution).


The equivalent of Westpoint or Sandhhurst - Pakistan Military Academy, Kakul - is located a short distance from the house where bin Laden lived.


As has been proven by Osama bin Laden, Abbottabad is a place to escape to - if you want to get away from it all!
