Are you a person consumed by wanderlust? Have you ever woken with a dream of Scuba Diving in Barcelona or River Rafting in surging rapids of Franklin river in Tasmania or Skiing in Taos Ski Valley in New Mexico? Being an adventure enthusiast, we have dreamt of all, there is only one thing that separates us from these lovely or for some, blood-curdling places, that is money. To fulfill our hunger for adventure we started exploring places in India and, the beauty and charisma that India offers is definitely at par with the other beautiful places in the world.
Here are top 5 places in India where you can feed your adventure hungry stomach with as much adventure you want.
1.Scuba Diving in Andamans: Explore the Underwater Treasure
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara reminds us of two things, friends, and Scuba Diving. The deep Pristine white beaches of Andaman offer a terrific variety of marine animals such as Scorpionfish, Octopus, Anglerfish, Sharks and Coral reefs as well. Beautiful reefs are a pleasant view for the daring divers. Who knows you might find a secret treasure in the enthralling Havelock Island.
- Ladakh: Welcome to Heaven
The first incident that we narrate to any new person whom we meet is how astounding our Ladakh trip was. It offers two of the world’s largest mountain ranges, alpine desert, and the dry barren landscape full of historic Buddhist monasteries. From River Rafting in the chilly Indus river originating from Tibet to Trekking in the awe-inspiring beauty of nature, you get it all. The trek is all about magnificent landscapes, historic Buddhist monasteries found in the region. Depending on your appetite you have the liberty to choose from Chadar Trek, Snow Leopard Trek, Lamayuru Trek etc, what matters is your risk-taking capacity.
- Auli: No, Not New Zealand
We had only seen skiing in movies until we visited this mesmerizing, eye-capturing place located 16 km from Joshimath. The steep hills are enough to pump up the euphoria furthermore. The panoramic view of mountains like Nanda Devi, Kamet and Dunagiri will blow your mind. Apart from skiing, other attractions like the cable car, rope lifts, making snowman add a feather to this beautiful place.
4.Rishikesh: Paradise for the Adventure Seekers
River Rafting, Bungee Jumping, camping, flying fox, Kayaking Rappelling, Mountain biking, Trekking and much more. What else do we, adventure lovers want?
For us, it’s a Paradise.
Walking through the mystic trails makes us feel fresh and livelier.
To all the Acrophobic people, we understand your fear of height but maybe trying Flying Fox or Bungee Jumping will let you get over your fear. Sir Winston Churchill Said “Fear is a reaction while courage is a decision.”
Common; pack your bags and run to Uttarakhand, Rishikesh will be found around.
- Goa – Booze+Adventure = Awesome
When we mention Goa, half of you are already dreaming of gulping alcohol until you are out. Well, low taxed booze is not the only exciting part of Goa. The exhilarating combination of miles of largely spread sandy beaches and the extensive rivers truly make Goa a dream destination for all. Besides, Goa is a perfect celestial home for the wanderlust traveler, an ideal destination for adventure enthusiasts.
Going Goa and not experiencing water sports is like surviving but not enjoying life. The banana ride at Mobor Beach, jet skiing at Majorda Beach is an exciting and safer ride for all ages. Goa is one of the very few places that offers Parasailing and Flyboarding.
Apart from water activates, jungle adventure, cruise, casinos will make your trip a memorable one.
Apart from these top 5 places, there are still numerous places left to be explored. Adventure does involve an element of risk,” Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.” Said Denis Waitley.
It’s high time that we break our daily routine, stop being repetitious. We wake up in the morning. Go to school or work. Come home. Eat. Sleep. It’s the same thing every day. Yet we are comfortable with it. Only after we come out of our comfort zone we will be able to explore.
