As happens with almost all of such places in Pakistan, the potential of turning to a great tourist attraction is there, but due to hapless attitude of the govt and concerned authorities, there are no services available and tourist face many difficulties.

Nice to walk around the hills and get a sense of history. Lack of information though but still great. Nice view of the city as well.
