Adventure Tourism

Adventure activities boost tourism in Uttarakhand


Extreme adventure activities like bungee jumping, flying fox and giant swing came back in action in Rishikesh, from a week ago, after a brief hiatus of two months for the monsoons. Despite the condition of the tourism industry in the state being in a dismal after last years flash floods, these unique adventure activities continue to be big time crowd-pullers.

Rishikesh is one of the handful locations in India with facilities for adventure sports and possibly the only location where the action takes place amid an entirely naturally setting. This is one of the major factors drawing in adventure sports enthusiasts from all over the country, reports Times of India.

“There is one bungee-jump operator in Lonawala near Mumbai, but there they use a crane to provide the heights. Here, the mountains and the flowing Ganga doubles the fun,” said Mumbai-based tour operator Saurabh Thakkar.
