Do people around you call you an adventure junkie? If yes, then you must have crossed many adventure sports from your bucket list; but if that is not the case then you need to check out this article because we have put together a list of 5 adventure sports that you can experience at 5 different places in India. The list has experiences like caving, paragliding, kayaking, scuba diving and skydiving; you will have fun reading it!
India is a land of such umpteen possibilities that sometimes it just blows away the mind! You can literally experience all kinds of adventures, in various parts of India. For example, if you wish to go on cave exploration then you need to check out the captivating caves of Meghalaya. The caves of Meghalaya are surrounded by lush green forest and waterfalls, and exploring this natural beauty is an enthralling experience in itself. One travelling tip: do not forget to pack food, water and a good torch, before going on a cave exploration; you will need them for sure!
When I ask you about Goa, you would instantly tell me that Goa is the party hub of India. But, what if I tell you that this place has a lot more to offer to its visitors? Yes, you can experience off-beat Kayaking in the mangroves of Aguada River that flows within Goa. Imagine yourself sitting in a Kayak and exploring the forest area of Goa; truly an enthralling experience and trust me only few would know about it. Apart from this, you can also check out Mandovi River in Goa; so what are you really waiting for!!
Do you wish to paraglide from the second highest place in this whole world? Well, if yes, then you need to pay a visit to this adventure sports destination of India, called as Bir-Billing. Bir-Billing is a small village of Himachal Pradesh, with a beautiful backdrop of mountains and greenery. While paragliding, you can enjoy the panoramic view this place has to offer, plus enjoy your landing amidst raw beauty of nature. You can work out the whole plan with an online travel portal and book your package to save extra on your booking.
Ever wish to fall free from a great height and let-go off, all the backlogs that you have in your mind? If yes, then Mysore is the next place you should be heading off to. This place offers the option of skydiving amidst green valleys. If you are up for it but still scared, I get the feeling! You will however, be given a proper training for a day or two, before your actual experience, so you need not really worry. If you feel that you are still not ready to take the plunge (literally here!), you can even go for the Tandem Jump, where the instructor will accompany you. You will not have to do any work just enjoy the pull of the gravity!
Andaman & Nicobar Island
Andaman & Nicobar Island has barren and secluded islands and they offer the majestic experience of scuba diving in clear water. Just dive deep down in the crystal clear water and check out basalt formations and coral gardens, in the water. Believe you me, you will never be able to forget this experience in your life. If you love water and adventure then this adventure sport is for you!

Thanks for sharing such an insightful post as always
From the above, I have only been to aguada. Maybe because sports has never been my main idea of a holiday though I love to try out things when I am on vacation.
Glad I read it timely, last time when we went to Aguada, the water sports were closed, but I’ll not miss it this time for sure.
I have only been to aguagda, honestly I wish to visit Andaman ..that’s on my bucket list. But your post made me know about Bir Billing and Meghalaya as an adventure destination and I am curious
Those are some wonderful destinations to explore. Meghalaya is my fav, out of all. Last year one thing we all missed the most was traveling, hope this year we get to travel more 🙂
I have been to Goa and Mysore but haven’t visited any of these places. North east is yet to be explored. Thanks a lot Neha for sharing these wonderful places…next time I know what to visit as I am sure it is going to be lot of fun.
Every vacations we go for long drives to different states in India. You gave me new destinations this time. Thanks a lot
I had not visited any places from the list mentioned here but all sounds so amazing. will surly keep these suggestions in mind, when visit India next time.
Bir-Billing seems quite an interesting place. I always like to travel to mountains and everything about this small village sounds good.
Meghalaya sounds fascinating. Caves and nature are such a big mix of adrenaline spiking experience.
I am glad to read about such experiences being now available in the country itself. i recall earlier people could only have most of these adventures if they went abroad.
Wow! such amazing places. But honestly I am quite fearful when it comes to any adventure activities – especially that involve heights. Though secretly I really wish to try any of these at least once in life!
Awesome list of places . I have a dream to visit Meghalaya once . Bir-Billing is also seems like an interesting place .
I have never heard of Aguada and Bir billing. Thanks for the recommendations. I will visit these places. I am a globetrotter
I’m not much into adventure sports and plan vacations to chill and spend time with family. This is a good list for reference and will share this with my friends.
I have been to Andaman and had an aweosme experience with scuba diving there. In India, Andaman in the best place for scuba diving due to clear water and really great corals and underwater life.
