Adventure Sports : Active India - The Real Adventure - 1

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.
