From mountain treks, to deep-sea diving, white water rafting and dune bashing India has a vast list of adventures to offer. We’ve made it easy for you to plan your adventure travels, by listing the must-do adventures in India!
Every year in January and February, the Zanskar river freezes and people walk on this frozen river for beautiful views of the Himalayas, frozen waterfalls and gorgeous monasteries. This is known as the Chadar Trek, and is considered to be one of the best treks in India. It’s pretty risky and scary to walk on frozen ice and the weather is dangerously cold, but it’s completely worth it. It’s exhilarating to see the stunning scenery, atmosphere, caves and unique campsites. This once-in-a-lifetime experience is not for the faint-hearted!
If you prefer the beaches, sun and sand, we recommend the Andaman for a wide range of water sports, such as scuba diving and snorkeling. The water surrounding these islands is gorgeous with diverse marine life, offering fascinating views when you go under water. Prepare to see marine life such as coral reefs, scorpion fishes, octopus and sharks. Relax on the beaches after your dives and soak in the scenery of these tropical islands.
Go to the Spiti Valley to explore untouched India. With its beautiful terrain, small villages, amazing waterfalls, beautiful monasteries, gorgeous valley, and stunning riverside views, the Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh is a must-do! Go on a group trek in the summer or climb frozen waterfalls in the winter. Recently, some adventure junkies attempted climbing frozen waterfalls for the first time and we hear it’s a spectacular experience. Please be prepared before you attempt to trek and or climb waterfalls in Spiti and follow all the rules to avoid any mishaps.
Goa is not only a relaxing tourist destination, but also offers numerous water sports and adventures to adrenalin seekers. Go Flyboarding, paragliding or parasailing in Goa for that unique Goa experience. Flyboarding is only available at Baina Beach in Goa. Along with water sports, parasailing is a great way to get an aerial view of Goa and have a fun adventure. You can even go white water rafting or kayaking in the Mandovi river while you’re in Goa. Goa also offers numerous treks and surfing in it’s ious beaches.
If you want to see India’s wildlife go for a jeep safari in Gujarat’s Gir National Park. You will see beautiful lions in their natural habitat here. We hear that the best time to see lions is at sunset or first light. Seeing lions and other wildlife from an open-rooftop jeep is an incredible experience.
While Kerala has a lot to offer tourists, we highly recommend a thrilling adventure sport called Flying Fox here. Flying fox is a sort of a zip-line that is connected to two opposite mountains. The views are stunning while you enjoy this sport. Kerala also has other adventure sports such as trekking, water sports and numerous wildlife safaris.
