Where there are large rocks, there is a stage set for rappelling. From beginner descents to some of the toughest cliff faces, you are never too far away from this adventure. An activity that gives you quite a core workout, rappelling encourages people to explore rugged landscapes and enjoy beautiful sceneries apart from the main event itself. Ramanagara, which is on the Bangalore-Mysore highway is a great place to literally “learn the ropes” of this adventure discipline.

Bungee Jumping

An activity not meant for the faint-hearted, bungee jumping is also one that helps you conquer your fears. Strap yourself to an elastic cord and take a plunge into thin air from a height. As crazy as it may sound, this is one of the most popular adventure activities across the world and performed with the highest standards of technical details and equipment. India has many popular bungee spots, from natural set-ups to artificially designed spots. Rishikesh, Lonavala and Bangalore are considered to be some of the top places for bungee jumping in India.
