When people say life is full of twists and turns, they are trying to say that life is an adventure. We all have limited time so make the most of it. Go on adventures, be it in the deepest of oceans or the tallest of the mountains. There are always a lot of things one can do in India when it comes to adventures.
From the east to the south and from the west to the north, the country is full of adventures. Here are some of the best bucket list ideas for adventure travelers.
Chadar Trek, Ladakh
Here, the challenge is to trek on top of a frozen river. It is one of the most thrilling experiences. You can only experience this in the winter months of January and February. The altitude of the place reaches up to 11, OOO ft.
You can enjoy the view of the canyon shaped valleys, which is covered in a thick blanket of snow. It can be a bit challenging, but that’s where the fun is.
River rafting, Rishikesh
If there is one place where you need to enjoy river adventure, Rishikesh is on the top. Rishikesh is the river rafting capital of India. The speed of the holy Ganga is thrilling. The river rafting here is quite an experience.
The fast gushing waves of the holy river with the Majestic Himalayas’ view along with the greenery around makes it a beautiful combo.
Scuba diving, Andaman
It is now time to dive underwater, and there is no better place to do it than in Andaman. The clear water and the fascinating marine life make it a truly magnificent experience. You can scuba dive and see different fish species, and the beautiful coral reefs leave you astonished.
