The Other Adventure Options

Wildlife Safari – This one is exciting for all. Spotting animals in their natural surroundings is always a pleasure and adventure seekers just love it. In India, there are many parks that are worth visiting, each one special in its own way. While the Gir national Park of Gujarat is famous for its 300 Asiatic Lion, Sundarbans in West Bengal is known for its royal Bengal Tigers. If tiger spotting is what you look for, then Bandhavgarh and Kanha both in Madhya Pradesh) are the real place to be.

Scuba Diving – While wildlife safari takes you on a trip to the animals and birds’ world, scuba diving introduces you to a more colourful underwater world. Fascinating creatures that you have never ever seen in your life wait to completely overwhelm your senses. Options for diving places in India include Goa, Havelock Islands in Andaman and Nicobar Islands,Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu, Varkala beach in Kerala and Devbagh in Karnataka.

Camel Safari – Riding on a camel is not easy. It is tiring but at the same time it is enjoyable. Discovering the sandy regions on the back of the camel, camping on sand dunes during night and watching the surrounding glow in the moonlit night is a beautiful experience. Jaisalmer and Bikaner in Rajasthan are the top spots when it comes to camel safari in India. Apart from this, the Rann of Kutch and (cold desert) Ladakh are also interesting.

Paragliding – Spread your wings and fly like a bird. Isn’t this something we are told whenever we try to restrict ourselves within certain limitations. Well, this is different but if you really wish to fly like a bird then here is an opportunity- opt for paragliding and Billing in Kangra valley is the place to be. This small place in Himachal Pradesh has become the venue of international competitions.Mt Abu, Pushkar, Kullu valley, Ooty and Kodakonal are other places really good for paragliding.
