Have you ever wondered what an aerial view of Islamabad's Margalla Hills would be like? Well, you can now know. No, we are not referring to pictures.

The capital city now has a zip line. Yes, you heard that right. It is nestled near the foot of the lush hills at the Shah Allah Ditta Caves.

The newly installed zip line is about 120 meters long and about 60 meters feet high. The equipment, such as harnesses, used in the service have all been imported from the USA, the management of the zip line told SAMAA TV.

Tourists in Islamabad queuing to experience the adventure expressed their excitement at the new zip line. "We don't have to travel to Swat or Kalam especially for the slide now," a couple visiting the city for the first time said.

Another woman from Lahore said called the experience the "best and most unforgettable experience of her life".

The tourists expressed their satisfaction over the safety of the zipline as well.

Pakistan's zip line is located in Swat at the Malam Jabba ski resort. It is 1,000 feet high and about 2,000 feet long and its speed can reach 80 kilometres per hour.

    Man made structures must not be allowed on these precious scenic natural places throughout Pakistan and protected by construction.

    Excellent decision by court. I was waiting someone should block it. Greedy developers and corrupt CDA officials have allowed rich to ruin the hills of Islamabad.
    Well done your honors.

    A well coming decision.
    What about the construction done prior to this decision. Can people be allowed to sell/buy (already constructed) property..?

    Good decision. We welcome courts orders and now it should be implemented by all regardless of position.
