Adventure India : Trekking Options in India - 12

Guys, this is the article on "Adventure India". I hope all these information worth for you to keep you close to the nature and tide you in a good relationship with it. Now in this segment I am exploring the various Trekking Options for your kind information.

Shorter Option in Himachal 2N3D:

Drive from Kullu to the manikaran hot springs. Next morning, walk along the Parvati river to the secluded village of Pulga. This is ideal for short exclusions upriver before retuning to Manikaran. This itinerary could be combined with a trek up the tributary Tosh Valley bordered by the Pir Panajl range and its peaks of Papsura and Dharamsura. While Pulga can be visited all year, the best time for the latter routes is May to October.

Moderate Option 3N4D:

Moderate trekking for 4 days over the Suglej-Beas watershed starts with a drive from Shimla via Narkanda on the Hindustan Tibet road to Rampur. From the Bashleo pass (32tt m), there are views of the Mahadev range and the trail down to the Beas Valley at Banjar for the road to Manali. West of the Bashleo lies the moderate Jalori Pass. Some of the other interesting diversions include a hike to Churdhar (3647 m) from Narkanda. With corporate team building programmes a growing segment, one that outlines a clear linkage between bonding in the boardroom and outdoors, q 3 nights 4 days itinerary could be suggested. Longer options could be 10 nights 11 days.

For those above average in fitness and with previous experience, the Pin Parvati Pass (5320 m) is recommended. The trek lasts from Manikaran to the old-would rest house at Pulga along the Parvati river. Gradually, the trail winds its way past Khirganga, the Mantalai glacier to the top of the pass on the Kullu-Spiti divide. The descent leads to the roadhead at Dhankar in Spiti from where one may drive to Kaza and the Kunzum Pass into Lahaul or down to the junction with the Sultlej to reach the Hindustan-Tibet road for Shimla.

For the firm-hearted, a 9-day trip will include hillsides that abound with apple orchards, quaint villages and temples and onto the tribal districts of Kinnaur, Lahaul and Spiti where Buddhism pervades the life of the people. Spiti is well known for its monasteries, of which Tabo is the oldest and most revered, having celebrated its millennium anniversary recently. the landscape of Spiti is in stark contrast to the fertile greenery of the first few days drive, marked by stark mountains, snow-capped peaks, flat valley floors and numerous glaciers. Cross the Rohtang Pass and descend to Manali in the lush green surroundings of the Kullu valley.

Safety - A Prime Consideration:

Three things that play an important tole in any adventure sport are good equipment, trained manpower and, most vital, following the guidelines. The Aerosports Association in India has been looking into making a safety-grid that incorporates operational areas of activity. This will help visitors know the skills required for a particular sport. It is also imbibing international practices by focusing on insurance premiums for the domestic market. International groups, must, in consultation with operators, insure themselves.

Camp Sites:

The best way of enjoying a tour to Himachal Pradesh is setting up a camp to explore the beauty of nature. You can put up your own tent or take shelter under the roof offered by any of several camps that offer accommodation, catering and activities like hiking, nature tours and river rafting. Camps can be found at Sarchu in Lahaul valley, Sangla and Kalpa in Kinnaur and Kaza in Spiti. In addition, the Youth Hostel Association of India also runs camps at Kullu, Manali and Dalhousie. Camps run by private operators are situate at Sangla valley and Kalpa in Kinnaur, Tabo in Spiti, Dharmshala in Kangra, Shoja near Kullu and Mashobra and Baldian near Shimla.

Trekking-Kumaon:

Getting There:

By Rail: The nearest railhead is Kathgodam, 35 kms from Nainital, connected to Agra. Bareilly and Lucknow.

By Road : Nainital can be reached by road from Delhi - 311 kms and Lucknow - 401 kms.

Trekking Routes:

Pindari Glacier: Among the best known trekking routes, this can be combined with Corbett National Park and a Garhwal-Kumaon motor safari following either the Pindar river from Karnaprayag or returning via Bageshwar in the reverse direction. The trek starts at Kapkote and over a span of 8-9 days, can be linked with visits to the neighbouring Kafni valley. It offers close-up views of Nadakot, Changuch and Nandaghunti peaks.

Virgin, unexpected treks await the trekker through fruit laden orchards, forests of pine and cedar, gurgling streams, sacred temples, rocky gorges, imposing passes and soft music from flutes of village shepherds.

Kullu-Manali region, along with Lahaul and Spiti areas, offer the best soft, medium and hard trekking opportunities. Some popular treks in the Kullu-Manali valley include Raison-Malana-Chandra Khani-Raison, Manali-Bhrigu-Rohtang Pass-Manal, Manali-Chikka-Hamta Pass-Manali, Raison-Padri-Khauli, Pass-Garasa-Raison, Manali-Chandratal-Manali.

The Kumaon and Garhwal regions of Uttarakhand too, are nature's finest expressions of land blessed with natural beauty and trekker's paradise.

Trekkers in Sikkim are spell-bound by the profusion of plants and flowers. A variety of over 4,000 species of plants including mangolias, rhododendrons, junipers, blue poppies, gentians and primulas make a pretty posy of memories of trekking holiday. One of the unique features of the Sikkim Himalayas is the splendor of numerous mountain lake flowers in a riot of colours beyond 10000 feet., a feast to the eye of the trekker. One may chance upon the shy musk deer or wave to the exotic Red Panda perched among the tree-tops. By the time you have covered the last lap of your trek, you will be familiar with the hospitality of the Sikkimese and the deep rootedness of their religion and culture.

A detailed trek itinerary can be made with the help of Sikkim Tourism. Adventure Division, Gangtok or any recognised travel agent in Sikkim. Trekker huts along trek routes are available at Pemayangtse, Khechopalri, Yuksam, Tsokha, Dzongri, Thangshing, Zemathang, Chaurigang and Tashiding. A eleven-day, relatively leisurely trek that is spiritually elevating is Pemayangtse - Sangacholing - Khecheopalri - Bubdi - Sinon - Tashiding - Ralang.

Plenty of trekking routes have been opened in the Garjeeling area to savour the breathtaking beauty of the eastern Himalayas. This was the home of late Tenzing Norgay and has since 1954 boused the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute where he trained a generation of mountaineers. The earliest Everest expeditions started journey from the Darjeeling area. The trekking adventure culminates at Sankakphu - a summit at an altitude of 3,658 meters (12,000 feet) on the famous Singalila ridge.

Various forts in the Sahadris also provide a good base for trekking activities. Forts around Pune include Sinhgad, Lohagad, Visapur, Shivneri, Purandar and Rajgad. Pratapgarh near Mahabaleshwar, Panhala near Kolhapur, Torna near Bhor, Rajmachi near Lonavala, Harishchandragad, Maholi in the Kasara hill range and Mathera via Garbet Point are other exciting options. There are various clubs and private institutions which organize trekking expeditions on a regular basis to the above mentioned forts.

Adventure India : Zanskar Trek, Skiing and Heli-Skiing - 10

Guys, actually there are no limits for sports in India. If we think on the issue of Adventure Sports, there are many adventurous sports available in India. Just we have to expand our eyes to see the scope of sports. Here I am going to express the some more adventurous sports. Get an information and spend your precious and memorable moments with it.

"Frozen River Zanskar Trek:

A challenging and exciting trek over the frozen river Zanskar is the only access to the isolated capital of Zanskar (Padum), during the harsh winter period. This dramatic and challenging trek begins with the few days sight-seeing in the Tibetian influenced Kingdom of Ladakh. The trek is on the frozen river with night stops at villages and natural caves. Best Time : Mid January to Mid February".

Skiing:

Winter is a time to bundle up in front of a roaring fire with a pot of hot coffee brewing on the stove. But only after you have been out enjoying the cold. About 13 kms from Manali, Solang Valley has good skiing slopes equipped with an excellent lift, offering views of glaciers and snow-capped mountain peaks. Kufri, 16 kms from Shimla offers skiing facility during the season. To appreciate the spectacular Himalayan ranges, Narkanda is an ideal retreat for those looking for some solitude in the mountains. It gives a unique view of the endless snow line, especially during winter when the slopes come alive with skiers.

With the first all of snow, the highlands are transformed into a glittering winter wonderland. In winter, Gulmarg acquires a new persona - that of the country's premier skiing resort. Gulmarg has slopes varying between 8,700 and 10,500 feet with the highest ski runs in India. Meant only for beginners, Gulmarg ski-lifts and chair lifts provide basic utilitarian facilities with a simple link-up. In Gulmarg, you will be able to hire snowboots, mufflers, woollen socks, windproof jackets and caps. The longest ski run in Gulmarg is provided by the Gondola Cable which allows a ski run 2,213 metres. Sledging on the frozen glaciers is also offered by locals.

Pahalgam also provides facilities for skiing, and work on an Institutue of Mountaineering and Winter Sports is already underway. Skiing courses are conducted at Patnitop in the months of January and February. During the winter months, there are introductory courses for visitors / beginners at the gentle gradient slopes of Patnitop. At madhotop (5 kms from Patnitop on Sanasar Road), excellent possibilities for all kinds of skiing exist.

With their vast open spaces, above the snowline, the Garhwal and Kumaon hills of Uttaranchal offer a plethora of ski locales. For the avid skier, cross-country runs of 10-20 kms are now available with the added advantage of fresh powder snow. Due to their awesome height and spread, Garhwal and Kumaon, like other ares in the Himalayas, offer the thrills of exploratory long distance skiing. Winter skiing in Garhwal is now professionally conducted at the Auli slopes. The season is late December to early March, depending on snow conditions.

The eastern-most hill district of Uttaranchal, bordering Nepal in the east and Tibet in the north, Pithoragarh, is often called 'Miniature Kashmir'. Nestled amongst the spectacular Kumaon Himalayas, at a height of 5412 ft., in a small valley barely 5 kms long and 2 kms wide, Pithoragarh was an important centre of the Chand kings of Kumaon. Apart from the excellent skiing slopes, Pitaoragarh and its environs are known for their natural beauty and fine temples.

Other ski locales in Garhwal include Dayara Bugyal and Kush Kalyan in district Uttarkashi, Panwali and Matya in district Tehri Garhwal, Mundali in district Deharadun and Bedni Budyal in Chamoli. In Kumaon, Khalia Top in Musiyari and Chiplakot Valley in Pithoragarh are popular skiing locales.

Heli-Skiing:

Heli-Skiing has come to stay in India. It is practiced in the area bound by the Hanuman Tibba, Rohtang Pass, Deo Tibba and Chanderkhani Pass near Manali. A major feature is the compactness of the heli-skiing area. A sortie of ten minutes can carry the skiers to the top of a 14,000 floor high slope. Heli-skiing in Manali, Auli and Gulmarg provides an enormous variety of ski runs, and routes as complicated or as straightforward as the individual can tackle. A helicopter takes a group to the numerous peaks that surround the resort from where they make their descent.

Best Time : December to January

Adventure India : River Running - 9

This is the most organized and developed water sport in the country. It includes rafting, canoeing (travel by canoe) and kayaking (travel in a small canoe). India's rafting stretches are mainly on the rivers Beas, Sutlej, Mahakali ang Ganges, of which the Ganges is considered the safest. River trips are organized in the Indian Himalayas from the Zanskar and Indus rivers in Ladakh, to the Brahmaputtra and Lohit rivers in Arunachal Pradesh.

If you are lucky you might even catch the night rafting, when the runners raft by the light of the full moon that casts eerie shadows all over the flat Himalayan deserted land. In Sikkim, rafting is organized on the Teesta river. However, the Teesta is definitely not for beginners and strictly for those who are looking for a little adventure in rafting. River rafting is also done on the Sutlej, Chenab and Tons. Kayaking is becoming increasingly popular in India and can be done on the Beas.

White water rafting expeditions in India are organized and managed by professional Indian teams who have trained abroad in some of the difficult water stretches of the world. One such team recently won the prestigious Engadine Trophy at the international river rafting competition on the Inn river in Switzerland.

The Ganges affords some of the most spectacular river running in the country. Ideal for both paddle rafting and oar rafting, the river descends towards Rishikesh, passes under the Lakshman Jhoola and the run concludes at the dam beyond Rishikesh. The early stages of the Ganges offer the exhilarating alaknanda and the Bhagirathi rivers. The Indus snaking through Ladakh and the Zanskar and Chenab in Kashmir provide very different river running experiences.

Rafting on the magnificent River Kali is also popular in the Western Ghats of north eastern Karnataka. The programme is carefully designed and managed by rafting professionals. Safety aids such as PFD's (Personal Floating Devices) including life jackets and helmets are provided and are mandatory for all participating guests.

Garhwal, lying in the north western region of Uttarakhand offers opportunities for canoeing and kayaking.

Sikkim Tourism organizes package programmes during October to November. On request, it prepares tailor-made itineraries too. Kayaking is undertaken on the Teesta and is arranged for groups. Some experience in kayaking is required. Permission is required from Sikkim Tourism for conducting rafting trips by private parties. Contact the adventure Division, Sikkim Tourism or any recognized travel agent for further information.

Best Time : October to May

RAPPELLING :

Rappelling or abseiling (to rope down) is the process of descending a rope under control, used in rock climbing, mountaineering, caving and canyoneering; used to descend cliffs or slopes too steep to walk down.

A much safer adventure sport than mountain climbing. Anyone with normal fitness levels can participate in this activity. Though it sounds scary being a free fall where the rope hangs free not touching rocks or walls, the sport is not dangerous. It must, of course, be done under supervision. It is said, if you can walk, you can rappel too. Karnataka, HP and Uttaranchal offer some interesting sites.

PARAGLIDING:

Paragliding is a recreational and competitive flying sport. A paraglider is a free-flying, foot-launched aircraft. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing, whose shape is formed by the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing.

Famous for glaciers and snowcapped mountains and winter festival, Solang Valley and Deori Ghat provide just the right kind of slopes for paragliding during summer.

A combination of hang gliding and parachuting, India has immense paragliding possibilities with the Himalayas in the north and the Sahayadri ranges on the west coast. These sites have conditions for both ridge, thermal soaring, and ideal cross country routes almost all the year round, except during the monsoons. Distance world records have been set at international competitions held in India.

Adventure India : Rock Climbing - 3

The first stage to mountain climbing, rock climbing, is constantly increasing its tribe of enthusiasts. Himachal's steep rocky cliffs and mountain sides of Manali valley offer much to explore and conquer. Rock climbing uses a minimum of aids and the challenge is to find the toughest route and scale in the least possible time. Hands and feet do most of the work, but safety equipment like ropes, body harness, friends (cramming devices that contract to the pulling of a trigger and are wedged in the crevices) and nuts (metal wedges of different sizes) are essential. Just take an adventurous look at this slide show :

The availability of good climbing rocks not too far from the city gets greater access and participation from professionals as well as from the amateurs alike. Bangalore is in the centre of a number of rock-climbing destinations like Ramangaram (the setting for the Hindi blockbuster SHOLAY). Savandurga, Thuralli, Kabbal, Raogodhu and others. Badami, a five-hour drive from Bangalore, is also a good place for rock climbing. Kambakkam, around 100 kms from Cheenai, provides good climbing in many grades while Hampi in Karnataka has some of the best granite rocks in India providing the climbers ample opportunities to test their skills.

In a 300-kms radius adjoining Kolkata, there are some rock-climbing destinations such as Purulia, Matah Bura, Jai Chandi and Susunia Hills. The Himalayan Mountaineering Institute offeres courses in mountaineering at Gobu and Tenzing Norgay Rocks.

Guys after my 29 articles on Indian Art and Craft, I am moved towards the serial of Indian Adventure. Hope all you like it.

There can be no better quest than one that involves self-discovery. for adventure, tranquility and action, all rolled in one, adventure sport is India's new mantra.


From being focussed as a cultural tourist destination for several decades, India has emerged as an adventure destination for discerning international travelers. Perhaps no other single country in the world offers the variety of adventure opportunities which this South Asian nation does. Its diversity is fascinating. The choices are endless. From the inhospitable peaks soaring in rocky crags and forbidding ice fields of heights of over 6000 metres, the harsh desert land that offers innumerable thrills and safaris, tho the cool soothing azure waters of India's exotic islands, adrenalin-rush has a new meaning.

Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to set foot on Mount Everest along with mountaineer Tenzing Norgay, was once quoted as saying, "Adventure tourism is growing rapidly in India as access to remote areas is improving all the time. It is not only the scenic beauty that appeals to the adventurous mind but also the people themselves, the enormous variety of cultures and religions, warm hospitality and the skill with which life in a harsh environment is tackled."

India has several advantages in developing adventure tourism as it has no seasonality factor. While high-altitude adventure is possible during summer, during winter, low-altitude itineraries including skiing can be offered to adventure enthusiasts. An added attraction is that a visitor can indulge in several adventure activities during his holiday. For instance, visitors to north India could enjoy trekking, travel on horseback, go trout fishing in tis many rivers on indulge in skiing or water sports.

Indian Art and Craft : Jingle Jangle - 28

Guys, it is the last post on Indian Art and Craft. As I am on the path of expressing our Indian History to world's young generation and expecting that they come India and feel my India's fragrances.

Bangles, have over the centuries acquired a cultural, social and religious significance. This adornment was a purely decorative accessory until the medieval period. Around this time, the bangle was transformed from a mere decoration to a symbolically associated with widows who have been denied the right to wear bangles.

In Bengal, the iron kada (bangle) commonly termed loha is worn by the married women as a symbol of her marriage. The bride is also given a beautifully crafted white conch bangle and a red lac bangle.

Ivory bangles, like the glass ones, are an important item for brides of some communities. A bride from Punjab is traditionally given slender ivory choodas (bangles) in white and red. These bangles are given only in multiples of four. Over the years, the expensive ivory has been replaced by lac and plastic but the custom continues.

When the Gujarati bride conceives, her sister-in-law gifts her a silver chain bracelet. In the seventh month she is also asked to wear a bracelet made of black thread and five kowdis (a kind of shell). This bracelet is united only when the woman goes into labour pains to symbolically help in an easy delivery. A similar ceremony called Valaikapu, is practiced in south India.

The profession of glass bangle making and selling is mostly dominated by Muslims. Ferozabad, a town in Uttar Pradesh, is renowned for its glass bangle manufacturing.

In each region, bangles are made using the materials available locally, like wood in Kashmir and lac in Rajashtan.

The Ahirs of Rajasthan and Rabaris of Gujarat cover their entire hand with bangles made of bone. The Lambadis of Andhra Pradesh wear the graded bone bangles up to their elbows. The Bastar tribe of Madhya Pradesh wears bangles made of coconut shell. The Gonds and Bhils wear bangles made out of brass or beads. The Kashmiris have the most exquisitely painted papier-mache bangles.
