In search of adventure in India

TravelSpider suggests you some of the adventure holiday destinations in India as listed below, if you are really in search of them.

Mountain biking in Ladakh:
Ladakh, lying on the northern tip of India’s frontiers, is truly unparalleled in its majestic beauty. Biking around Ladakh is the holy grail of adventure cyclists all over the world. Terrifying mountain passes, thin air, and awe-inspiring beauty in a remote frontier landscape make this one heck of an adventure.

Skiing in Gulmarg:
A destination that’s as breathtakingly beautiful as it’s adventurous—Gulmarg has, over the years, become a magnet for those who love the thrill of extreme skiing on its big, jagged slopes. Pine-fringed and blanketed in snow, it exudes a charm few other places do.

Trekking in Zanskar:
Trekking in Zanskar is an adventure into one of the only truly remote frontiers in the country. The ancient monasteries and high passes in this cold and isolated erstwhile kingdom are mostly reachable only on foot or on horseback.

Scuba diving in the Andaman Islands:
The archipelago of Andaman and Nicobar is home to a diverse marine life—one that is a magnet for those in search of amazing underwater life. The pristine waters of these islands offer many opportunities for snorkelling and scuba diving as well as chances to try out other water sports.

Trekking and camping in Sikkim:
One of the smallest states in the country Sikkim amazingly also possesses topography stretching from tropical all the way up to alpine. Along with stunning bio-diversity, its home to old monasteries and superlatively pretty towns like Pelling. It’s one of the few places in the country where it’s entirely safe to travel without fixed plans and set up camp pretty much anywhere along the way.

White water rafting in Rishikesh:
Surrounded by the fast-flowing Ganga and forested hills, Rishikesh is a hotspot for adrenaline-pumping rafting adventures through a section of rapids that change in character every year. While rafting draws the most visitors to Rishikesh, it’s entirely possible to camp on the riverfront and lounge by bonfires under the stars.

Jungle safari at Jim Corbett National Park:
This sprawling abode for tigers and scores of other species is one of India’s top havens for wildlife enthusiasts. One word of advice: don’t get so preoccupied with tiger spotting that you miss other animals, and just the romance of traversing through what is genuinely wild territory.

Paragliding in Manali:
With mountain adventures beckoning from all directions, Manali is the perfect destination for those looking to unwind during the summers. Backpackers come to hang around in the villages near the main town and adventure tourists come for trekking, paragliding, rafting and skiing.

Skiing in Auli:
A twelve-hour-long drive from Delhi, Auli, India’s premier ski resort, is a picturesque destination located in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. Temperatures plummet to -4 degrees during the months of January to March, and ski enthusiasts gravitate here by the truckloads.

Nature walks in Dharamshala:
For those who like walking in the hills but don’t want to commit to full-fledged treks, Dharamsala, with its crisp, pine-fresh air, and magnificent vistas of the Dhauladhar range, is an ideal retreat. There are a number of short interesting walks around including popular ones to Triundh and Chamba Valley.
