The endless scope of adventure tourism in India is largely because of its diverse topography and climate. On land and water, under water and in the air, you can enjoy whatsoever form of adventure in India you want. It is one opportunity for you to leave all inhibitions behind and just let yourself go. The mountainous regions offer umpteen scope for mountaineering, rock climbing, trekking, skiing, skating, mount biking and safaris while the rushing river from these mountains are just perfect for river rafting, canoeing and kayaking. The oceans are not behind in any manner as well. The vast and deep expanse of water provides tremendous opportunity for adventure sports in form of diving and snorkelling.
The forest and the desert region have their own distinct place in providing scope for adventure tourism in India. You can enjoy animal safari, jeep safari, bird watching, wild camp, wildlife safari and jungle trail in the forest region while jeep safari and camel safari are the most favoured adventure sports in the desert region. After all this, if you think the list of adventure sports in India has ended, think again. There is still much left in form of paragliding, hand gliding, hot air ballooning, etc.
Adventure tourism in India is meant to provide you an exhilarating experience for life. Many a times in process of having fun, an entirely new aspect of life manifests itself before you and an awareness and appreciation about the surroundings emanates somewhere from deep within your heart.

- Wind and waterproof jacket
This is a very necessary item on the agenda. The ones made from the expensive goretex fabric are the best in the market for not only are they waterproof but they are also ‘breathable’, which helps to avoid the wet and clammy feeling of normal waterproof. If not there is the inexpensive waterproof nylon jacket.
- A Rucksack:
Again this is an essential item for trekking. A good-sized, waterproof, nylon, rucksack is a must. An internal frame system is required. This is good to the shoulders. Make sure that all the buckles are of the ‘quick release’ type. But remember that no rucksack is totally waterproof so make sure that you line it with of polythene bag .
- A Sleeping Bag:
Avoid a nightmare by choosing a sleeping bag carefully. There might be snow on the trek. There might be stones under your tent, so sleeping bag becomes an item of survival used Holofil bags to retain the trapped body heat in the loft even when wet. Avoid zippered bags. Try a slide-bag. It is good and warm even in temperature of 0 to 5 C. Do not forget to spread a mat under your bag.
- A Tent:
Take a strong tent to protect you from strong wind. They come in two basic shapes. The ‘A’ shaped with aluminium alloy poles and the dome shaped with aluminium or fibre glass rods The ‘A’ shaped tent with an inner layer of ‘breathable’ cotton and the outer (fly sheet) of waterproof nylon fabric, is the best for low altitude treks. Check the tent for strength and resilience. Take care never to pack wet or damp tents in their bags as they tend to mildew and rot.
- A Woollen Balaclava (monkey cap) PEAK cap.
- Sun Glares (preferably ones that block ultra violet rays)
- Sun Screen Lotion.
- T-shirts and Shorts for the day.
- Socks, stockings and Gloves that are 20 percent acrylic and the rest wool. Hundred percent wool often shrinks if wet.
- Also wear a pair of cotton socks under woollen socks. This allows perspiration to be soaked up by the first layer thus avoiding ‘matting’ of the socks.
- Many layers of clothing. The more layers you have, the more air you trap. Air, as you know, is a bad conductor of heat and retains body warmth.
