India: The Best Places to Visit on an Adventure Holiday

India: The Best Places to Visit on an Adventure Holiday

Journeying to India is a transcendental experience. A colourful country enriched by a unique culture and a treasure trove of ancient buildings and natural wonders, it is immersive, mesmerising, and truly exotic. From the exquisite palaces of the north to the languid Keralan backwaters, it’s an untapped gem that too few adventurers choose to visit.

If you’re an enterprising explorer in search of the next destination to tick off your list, here are a few places in India that we strongly suggest you see, along with some inspired ideas of what you should do once you’re there…

#1. Roopkund Trek, Uttarakhand

Gruesome, grotesque, and macabre skeletons may be, but at India’s glacial Roopkund Lake they also happen to be set against a stunning backdrop. Fans of The Walking Dead can have a real-life experience of their own when they visit, with hundreds of human remains scattered across and around the barely trodden paths and breath-taking lake. Local legend says that they belonged to the heroes of yesteryear, but research suggests they’re actually the ancient victims of freak hailstorms.

#2: Caving in Meghalaya

India is one of the best places on the planet to go caving, and Meghalaya is the ideal destination for an unforgettable subterranean experience. Nestled amongst picture-perfect waterfalls and lush green forests, the caves are breath-taking to behold, and far enough from civilisation for you to feel like you’ve been transported back in time to another world entirely. There’s also a pretty high chance that you’ll spot some of the local wildlife on your way there, so be sure to keep your camera at the ready.

#3: Flyboarding in Goa

Goa is internationally acclaimed as a water sport wonderland, and is the irrefutable home and heartland of ‘flyboarding’. For those who are unafraid of extreme action, it’s the ideal pursuit, but be prepared to take a while finding your balance. Once you have it nailed, you can fly through the air with the greatest of ease, watching a picturesque panorama of blue skies and jewel-coloured waters unfolding around you.

#4: Parasailing in Kerala

Ever wondered how to enjoy the ultimate aerial view of Kerala’s stunning Payyambalam Beach? We have the answer: parasailing. Taking you up to 300 feet into the air, it’s the perfect way to see the truly stunning sight from above. If white sands, aquamarine seas, and a cloudless vista sound appealing, we seriously suggest giving it a go.

    Paragliding in Bir is also a fantastic option. The Paragliding World Championships were held there in 2015 and it was a fantastic experience flying between the Himalayan Mountains.

    We went white water rafting in Dandeli National Park a few years ago, while staying in an amazing tree house!
