Who We Are

History

First named “Shaheen Gliding Club”, the company was founded in April 2010, with an initial aim to promote Paragliding sport in Pakistan. Soon Hang Gliding, Para Motoring and Power Gliding were also added to the list of Air Adventures. These sports were made accessible to general public on economical note within a short span and the then prevailing myth “Gliding is for Elite Class only” was successfully shattered. For a short period, company was renamed as SAAP Pvt Ltd but in 2015 was finally given name of “Shaheen Adventures Pakistan”. In 2012, in the light of CEO’s vision, efforts were launched to develop Khanpur Lake as an adventurous spot and in 2013, water sports were introduced that started attracting large number of adventure enthusiasts and tourists. In 2016, Shaheen Archery, an affiliate was founded at Islamabad that marked the beginning of promotion of archery in the country. In 2017, for first time in the history, parasailing was conducted at Darwaza Dam Haripur and was later shifted to Khanpur Lake in 2019. In 2018, a Base Camp was established in Margalla Hills at Shah Allah Ditta Islamabad, where first zipline facility of Islamabad was developed. In 2019, another thrilling zipline facility was developed at Rawalakot, first of its kind in Kashmir. And today, we can proudly look back to our 11 years long journey full of challenges, commitments and achievements. Till date, thousands of individuals from all age groups and belonging to various walks of life have realized their adventure dreams with us. We are fully determined to continue serving our customers with the highest standards of quality, thrill and safety in the field of outdoor adventure sports.”
