ADVENTURE TRAVEL IN INDIA OFFERS SOMETHING TO ALL SORTS OF TRAVELERS NO MATTER WHAT YOUÃ¢â‚¬â„¢RE AFTER. FROM DUNE BASHING TO SKIING TO HIKING THE HIMALAYAS AND MORE…THERE IS NO LIMIT TO THE AMOUNT OF ADVENTURE ACTIVITY IN INDIA TRAVELERS COULD ENJOY.
Here are some of our favourite destinations if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re after some serious adventure travel.
Assam: Underrated and not nearly as appreciated as it should be Assam is one of our favourite offbeat destinations for adventure travel in India. The mighty Brahmaputra that flows through the state will let you raft his playful rapids and camp on his river banks under starry skies and by gurgling waters. Majuli Island, the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s largest river island, will let you explore her cultural and natural secrets and the friendly faces of the Assamese people will leave you with warmth in your heart and wanting to come back for more to this state of many charms.
: Fancy hiking over frozen lakes, rafting the mighty Zanskar river and skiing down massive snow white mountains? Be it summer or winter, Kashmir is a year round adventure travel destination
. In the summer you can hike through its alpine meadows and go on weeklong rafting expeditions whereas the winter brings with it some excellent snowboarding, skiing and the right out of a fairy tale hike across a frozen lake. Kashmir is a truly welcoming and friendly state that has just not been given due credit across all these years.
: If you can think of it, they offer it. That to us basically seems to be the Himachal Pradesh motto. This mountainous state offers not only some of the best trekking in the country but also some excellent skiing, ice-skating, fishing, golfing, paragliding, rafting, mountain biking
and more. One of the best ways to explore Himachal is to make sure you have at least a week in hand along with a sturdy Jeep or 4WD to traverse the state. For avid hikers who are looking for something a bit more long term there are several courses that the Indian Insitute of Mountaineering offers.
Uttarakhand: Love the outdoor life and are some of your best days the ones spent camping and exploring national parks? If yes, then Uttarakhand might be the state for you. There is excellent white water rafting and kayaking in Uttarakhand as well as some seriously adrenalin pumping activities like Bungee Jumping and the Flying Fox. Easily accessible from New Delhi, this is the probably the best destination if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re craving some adventure travel and yet are pressed for time.
Andaman and Nicobar Islands: Another offbeat destination Andaman and Nicobar is slowly starting to become very popular especially with domestic travelers. Known for its excellent diving the Andaman and Nicobar Islands are home to a lot of secrets and destinations that are gradually starting to be unraveled. The underwater world here is spectacular and if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re lucky you can spot anything from massive Manta Rays to friendly Dolphins to the brightest coloured sea horses. These islands are one of the best diving spots in India and should sinking meters deep underwater not be your thing, simply grab a snorkel and explore the life below the ocean from the surface.
