Activities in India

For the thrill seeking traveller India is an all-in-one deal. The Indian Himalayas and the many hill formations present the trekker with innumerable hiking and trekking options.

The wildlife sanctuaries, whether in the ‘sholas’ of southern India or the thick teak forests of the east, whether in the ‘sal’ and ‘shisham’ jungles of the north or the scrub of the west, are for the nature enthusiast.

White water rafting in the rapids of the Himalayan rivers, ‘kettuvalam’ cruises in the Keralan backwaters, snorkelling, diving, water-skiing, beach bumming along India’s extensive coastline, there’s enough to make a water lover happy. There are many centres for adventure sports like parasailing and paragliding.

Skiing in the Alps it is not, but for beginners the slopes in Auli and the more difficult ones in Spiti would provide some thrill. Some hotels and clubs allow non-guests/members pay-and-play use of swimming pools and golf links.

Planning to surf? Try India. The undiscovered spots on the vast Indian coastline are well-visited by surfers all around. Surfing in India is still developing and you will be amazed to experience waves height ranging from 3 ft to 15 ft during pre and post monsoons respectively. You can enjoy surfing in various parts of the country including- Mulki near Mangalore, Gokarna near Goa, Kovalam and Varkala in Kerala, Dwarka in Gujarat, Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu, Orissa, Vishakhapatnam and Auroville in Pondicherry.

Cricket is special in India. It’s as much about twenty-two guys and a ball as about the beat of drums and blasts from trumpets, painted faces and flag-waving, and cheering (and jeering) enthusiasm. Try and catch the buzz at least once – the recently introduced IPL T20 format is a huge hit all over the country and for the six weeks in April – May, the country sits glued to the television screens every evening!
