Habib University Adventure Society (HAS) Habib University Adventure Society (HAS)

Besides letting us experience that mad rush of adrenaline, adventure exposes us to our planet Earth in a way that nothing else can. You can see the picture of a mountain, but only when you step on the clay and stones that make it up, and walk through the dozens of types of shrubs, flowers and trees growing on it and the little creatures crawling through it, can you truly claim to know a mountain.The Adventure Club gives you the opportunity to interact with nature on a one-on-one basis.

We have conducted trips to different areas across Pakistan in the past. Under our belt, we have trips to the Churna Island, the Tharparkar Desert, the snowy mountains of Swat-Kalam and the Gorakh Hills.

We have gone hiking, camping, snow skiing, tobogganing, snowball fighting, cliff diving, banana boating, wake tubing, jeep riding, snorkeling and jet skiing in the past two years since our inception. And we have many more exciting things planned! Join us and help us make more adventures of a lifetime!
