The Bara Galli (Summer) Campus II

The Campus II of the University of Peshawar is located at Bara Gali on the Abbottabad Nathia Gali - Murree Road, at a distance of approximately 30 kilometers from Abbottabad, having an altitude of 7,700 ft (2,350 m) above the sea level, and is spread over an area of 60 acres of land.

Bara Gali, one of the most beautiful valley resort with dense forests, tall mountains and very pleasant climate, is the Campus II of the University of Peshawar since 1965. It is the nucleus of our academic and research activities particularly during entire summers, i.e. Mays to Septembers. Each summer around 20-25 International and National Seminars, Conferences, Symposia, Workshops, Training courses, etc. are held at this Campus, which are attended by more than a thousand national and international participants. Thousands of our students from the various teaching departments/schools/colleges/centres visit Bara Gali each year both in summers and winters, for various academic and research purposes.

Besides, all the students' co-curricular activities, including shooting club, hiking society, adventure club, medical camps, cross-country/road running, sports mela, and so many other activities take place at the Bara Gali Campus. Each year the Independence Day is celebrated with traditional pomp and show. The whole campus is illuminated at night. Hundreds of men, women and children participate in the various events. Educational activities are a matter of routine at Bara Gali during the summer vacations, giving the University of Peshawar the unique edge that its academic activities do not go on a standstill during the summer vacations.[6]
