Pioneer adventure tours was Established Aug 15th in Shillong with the prime intent to introduce and expose adventure sports in the state of Meghalaya and the North East as a whole. Starting Pioneer Adventure tours made sense simply because there was a lack of qualified professionals providing people with the opportunity to explore and discover Meghalaya’s rich and diverse natural environment.

Our first adventure site is situated in Dawki (which borders Bangladesh) and provides adventure activities like scuba diving, trekking, river rafting, cliff jumping, zip lining, caving, rock climbing, canyoning and camping. We intend to have people stay on site for a couple of days and take part in the various adventure activities on offer.

Most of our team is experienced in the adventure activities we offer, with certified qualifications in scuba diving from PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) as well as mountaineering and rock climbing from the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering. Jason is a certified rock climber, having passed out from Wee’s Rock Climbing School, Thailand. Jason and Vijay have been part of major river rafting expeditions, and Gary is a highly experienced mountaineer, having summited Mt Cho Oyu in Tibet and most recently, Stok Kanrgi in Leh, Ladakh. He has also climbed Mt. Everest and Mt. Kancehnjunga in Nepal and Nyegi Kangtsang in Arunachal Pradesh.

Our mutual love for adventure sports and the outdoors meant that Pioneer Adventure tours was an inevitability and it is one that we hope will provide many with the opportunity to learn about, appreciate and respect this region’s natural beauty like we do.
