Wanna take a break … ?
Orienteering is an outdoor sport enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. It is a form of land navigation in which ‘orienteers’ use an accurate, detailed map and a compass to find points in the landscape. It can be enjoyed as a walk in the woods or as a competitive sport. It provides the suspense and excitement of a treasure hunt.
In collaboration with Adventure Foundation Pakistan (AFP) , Asian Study Group (ASG) has designed an introductory course to help you to learn rough and find skills of land navigation, use of map and compass, pacing and using attack points. By the end of this weekend course you will be changed from an enthusiastic beginner to an eager competitor.
The course is physically challenging but not strenuous. It is not beyond the reach or ability of any person from age 12 and above.
We will drive to Abbottabad in a Hiace Van in the afternoon (at 3:00 pm from United Bakery front) on 24th November (Saturday). At Abbottabad we will stay in the camping site of Adventure Training Centre of AFP. We will be back in Islamabad on the evening of 25th November (Sunday). Coaching, equipment for orienteering, simple boarding and lodging with meals and transport will be provided.
