Mussiari is a village and union council of Murree Tehsil in the Rawalpindi District of Punjab, Pakistan.[1]

It is located in the south central area of the tehsil to the south of Murree. According to the 1998 census of Pakistan it had a population of 9,945.[2]

The major tribes of the Union Council include the Behramals and the Parhals with such distribution that the village Musirai which located in south of Murree city houses the parhals along with the villages of Mohra, Batnara and Paghaan (in south of Jhika Gali), whilst the villages of Bara Hoter, Sumbal Bia, Phaphril, Ghora and Saen are inhabited by behramals. The Union Council has a scenic beauty of a dale, as the River Soan bisects the two population hubs. There are behramal majority areas in the east of the river and parhal's majority areas in the west of the river.

The literacy rate in Union Council Musiari is substantial, and the rate is quite healthy in girls too. One High School for Boys, located in the village of Phaphirl, is meeting the education needs of the populace, it does not suffice albeit. The growing population of the area demand a Higher Secondary School and the existing School needs to be upgraded for the purpose. There are a number of middle and primary schools for boys and girls in the area, but a girls high school is still a remote possibility that eludes the desirous population for decades. The affluent parents prefer sending their children to better English medium schools in the Murre City. The road net has substantially increased with the construction of Murree-Islamabad express way. However, the remote areas still roost in the dilapidated road conditions that aggravate each year owing to flashing monsoons.
