Postal address for Campsite in Islamabad

Hello

Does anyone have the address for the campsite in Islamabad? I can't find it on the internet, and i need to put it on my itinerary for my Pakistan Visa?

Does anyone know of a campsite near the India border crossing as well, or a cheap guesthouse recommendation?

Thanks

Fern

Tourist Campsite,
Shahrah-e-Kashmir Road.

I can recommend the Paradise Inn in Saddar bazzar/ cantonment area of Pindi (Pizza Hut and KFC across the road! and Flashman's Hotel is a walk up the road where on the right day you could get a take out Murree or two.

Lahore is only a short distance from the border, www.pakistanbikersclub.com are the guys to contact, you will not find more helpful guys than these FACT.

Cheers
Pete

Folk stay at the Regale Internet Hotel in Lahore. I was asked at the border coming from India where I would be staying, my response of 'just whatever takes my fancy' wasn't good enough and the guy wrote this place down, very basic though but you spend most time on the roof.
