Charra Pani is a hill station in the Galyat region of northern Pakistan.

Location[edit]

It is located about 15 km from Islamabad the capital city of Pakistan, en route to Murree and other Galyat. A fairly fast water stream runs through the park. Water here is usually very cold as it originates in the hills. People from the twin cities (Rawalpindi and Islamabad) often visit this place.

History[edit]

British troops were stationed here during the British Raj. In 1857 during the uprising against British rule, Sardar Sherbaz Khan and his sons were killed here after being captured.
