Swat’s famed Malam Jabba ski resort has a new attraction: a zip line. The zip line, which is the highest in Pakistan at 9,200 feet, has been installed in the resort to attract tourists from all over the country and the world.

The newly installed zip line is approximately 1,000 feet (90 metre) high and about 2,000 feet (550 metre) long, while its speed can reach up to 80 kilometres per hour. Just imagine the views and adrenaline rush you’re going to get.

Ever since it was opened, tourists have thronged to the new tourist attraction, zip-lining to their heart’s content. Speaking to different media outlets, the tourists said that it was a true adventure and a unique experience for them.


The provincial government of KPK along with the federal government have placed a lot of emphasis on developing tourism in Pakistan. In fact, KP Tourism Minister Atif Khan in a recent media talk revealed that the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government is planning to start a helicopter service to make it easier for people to reach popular tourist spots.
