India – The land of Hidden Adventure Sports Destinations

India is a marvelous Country. A 225-million-year old Country spread 6000 kilometres across hemispheres and Changing climate regimes has blessed our Country with a landscape of perplexing diversity including lofty peaks in the north, vast deserts and salt pans in the north-west, over 5000 kilometres of coastline with mangroves and tidal flats, the Western Ghats, the basaltic Deccan plateau, ancient rainforests, and several islands.

Surprised because you always headed to New Zealand and other western Countries for Adventure sports? It’s time to edit your bucket list and explore the Country.

In this Article, we are talking about India as a Land of hidden Adventure Sports destinations and these aren’t just regular theme park-based adventure sports. There is altogether a different level of adventure activities in the Country now. Let’s list below the activities that will give your adrenaline a kick.

History of Adventure Sports in India

Wikipedia mentions that Adventure sports emerged in India during the post-colonial Era due to a need to transcend life’s routines. But seeing the topography of India, the unwritten history and date of adventure sports in India seem to be much earlier. From trudging across mountains and valleys to reach the other part of town, to tackling the waves while fishing, each Indian has and is still being adventurous in their daily lives.

Adventure Activities in the Country & the Hidden Destinations

A few adventure activities in parks/adventure camps which are sure to get your adrenaline rushing are:

BUNGEE JUMPING

Bungee Jumping India

Bungee Jumping

Bungee jumping is an extreme sport and is certainly not meant for the weak hearted as it involves jumping off a cliff or a certain height. In short; we can define this as a free fall but with a lot of precautions and safety. We aren’t supermen/women after all.

The rope commonly called cable is tied to the jumper’s legs together. The cable is designed in such a way that it pulls you to a certain angle depending on the kind of jump and terrain.

What it takes to Bungee Jump

  • Your weight matters. You will be weighed before being allowed to bungee jump. Confused? It’s for the simple matter that the elasticity of the cable will have to be matched to stretched as per weight. The more you weigh, thicker will the cable be.
  • You will swing like a pendulum when you fall, its normal.
  • You will get a head rush.

World History isn’t a Mystery

1. Bungee jumping was discovered by the world during the Second world war when the westerners visited Pentecost Island in the South Pacific. It is believed that one of the natives, Tamalie, was abusing his wife who was the inventor of bungee Jumping as far as history takes us. Tired of facing abuse from her husband, the lady ran away and climbed a tree only until Tamalie found her. With no option left, the unnamed lady tied up lianas around her ankles and jumped off the tree. Unfortunately, she didn’t know what it took to bungee jumping (teaches us the lesson of using safety while using adventure sports) and died after hitting the ground.

From that day, the egoistic men of the village started practicing jumping with lianas such that they couldn’t be outwitted by their wives.  And this is when the first Bungee jumping platform – a 28-meter-high tower, was built. As mentioned by Irving  Electa Johnson in National Geographic Magazine (Published in 1955) before the jump, every man had a ritual bath and then climbed the tower. After this; his wife was brought to a tower where she had to listen to the poor fellow’s complaints in front of the whole village, following which the man had to jump, head down, to prove his manhood. Weird but true.

2. Modern-day bungee jumping began in 1979 by members of Oxford Dangerous Sports Club from a 80m high Clifton Bridge in Bristol, England. And rest of the World then followed it.

3. The first commercial bungee jumping site was started by New Zealander adventurer A.J. Hackett in 1989.

4. World’s Biggest & Highest Bungee Jump point is at the Macau Tower, Hong Kong. It is located at a height of 220m.

PARASAILING

Parasailing

Parasailing in India

How it’s done?

Who doesn’t want to fly free? Parasailing does the same (With safety in this case of course). This recreational activity is performed attaching yourself to a harness that is attached to a very large parachute or parasail.  Then your harness is attached to a towing vehicle i.e. a fast boat. The boat takes off and up you go!  The longer the tow rope, the higher you’ll go.

World History isn’t a Mystery

  1. Parasailing was invented in 1961 by Pierre-Marcel Lemoigne, a French engineer, to assist parachutists with training. He called it Parasail. While modifying and assisting; he modified a para-commander parachute and named it- Ascending gliding parachute. After this, he founded Aeronautical Training Service and thus introduced parasail.
  2. Parasail, however, gained popularity in 1962 after Pierre-Marcel Lemoigne sold his idea to a Connecticut based company called ‘The pioneer Parachute Company’. It was this company which came up with the name- Parasailing.
  3. Parasailing was initially used by the US Military for carrying out rescues operations.
  4. In 1969, Parasailing took over as a sport. It began on road using a 4-wheel tow vehicle and then became popular as a water sport.

SKYDIVING

Skydiving in India

Skydiving in India

You probably know about this sport and will be more than excited about this one. But Beware! This one isn’t for the weak hearted at all. It’s a freefall jump not from a few feet but almost 2500 to 4000 meters or maybe even more. Skipped a heartbeat?

Types of Jumps in Sky Diving

  1. Tandem Jump: Most common skydiving jump is the Tandem jump which involves jumping out of a plane along with an instructor. Even though it sounds like a freefall safety measures are taken, and you are attached to the instructor with a harness. The instructor wears a parachute big enough for both of you. You don’t need any training to perform this jump.
  2. Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) Level 1: Unlike Tandem jump, AFF requires prior training of 5 to 6 hours from a ground school as this is a solo jump. You will, however, have 2 trainers holding you and helping you to jump the right away while you exit from the plane. This is done to ensure proper body positioning and to initiate the canopy opening. For your security and to ensure proper landing and proper flaring for landing, an instructor on the ground keeps in touch with you throughout the fall via radio.
  3. Static line Jump: This one is similar to AFF Level 1 in terms of training and solo fall. The only difference is that during exit from the plane, the parachute is automatically deployed (within 3 seconds of jumping) by a cord attached to the plane.

SNORKELING

Snorkeling in India

Snorkeling in India

Snorkeling is a water activity in which we float in the sea wearing a life jacket which is filled with special material to keep you floating in water (so being a swimmer or non-swimmer doesn’t matter when it comes to snorkeling). Snorkeling gets its name from snorkel which is a diving mask designed in a way that it lets you see inside the ocean while blocking your nose to let you breathe easily from the mouth. At the mouth, a shaped breathing tube is placed which is partially in water and partially above the water and helps you breathe while you enjoy snorkeling.

Why Snorkel?

Snorkeling is an activity performed to get a breath-taking view of the underwater life including fishes, sea animals, and coral.

How to perform Snorkeling?

Snorkeling isn’t like a free swim tour wherein you simply swim and go to any part of the ocean. Hence, for snorkeling, there are designated professional tour operators who let you book a snorkeling trip. Under this, they take the boat (Mostly speedboat) to the snorkeling spot and give you equipment (Snorkel and jacket) using which you can enter the ocean to get an idea/view of the ocean life.

Is snorkeling risky?

No, it’s not until you wear the jacket and follow instructions. While most experienced swimmers like to explore the sea deeper and remove the jacket, one isn’t advised to do so. And yes, beware of the coral. Don’t try to step on it as underwater life is vast and various sea animals can merge with the coral so touching the fishes or any animal is a big NO-NO.
