Adventures & Sports
Haryana Tourism catapulted into the arena of Adventure Sport with
the forming if its Adventure Club in November ,1991. And Adventure
sport had begun. The objective is to provide the young people with
opportunities to realise their physical and mental potential by
overcoming challenges and obstacles.Even as you read these words,
some one somewhere in the state of Haryana will be venturing into
our fascinating world of Adventure Sport. He might be a speak. Aboard
a rubber dinghy. Speeding down on white water river-rafting. Eating
away miles of the river "Yamuna, near Hathinkkund. On braving
a sheer rock-face; fighting to gain a foot hold in a bid to rock
climb. At Damdama lake. Or the Morni Hills near Chandigarh. Speeding
past in a canoe or a kayak. Straining muscles. To be spotted a winner.
At Damdama Lake. At Surajkund: or Badkhal Lake
camping and cycling near Damdama. Getting a feel of rural Haryana.
Taking in a whiff of the countryside at Sohna. Or relaxing by camp
fires. Listening to the sounds of silence or thrilling to the joy
of hovercraft rides.
Get swept off your feet and float in the air! Have a jeep pull you
in to the air for short exhilarating ride under a Para Sail before
floating back to mother earth; or take off from a mountain top and
land in the valley below on a Para Gilder.
This is the easiest way available to get air borne for the Children
and grown ups alike. The club holds regular parasailing at the Pinjore
Aviation Club. This activity is also being conducted at Hisar, Karnal
and Bhiwani air strips also and Adventure Club of Haryana Tourism
is capable of undertaking this activity out of the state also on
Rock Climbing deals with mastering the techniques and experienceing
the thrills of climbing on exposed rocks which may be from only
a few meters high boulders to a few meters high boulders to a few
hundred meters high rock faces of different gradients. Rock climbing
is indeed the basics of sound Mountaineering.These activties are
regularly being conducted at Damdama, Tikkar Tal and Solang at Manali
Ever thought floating down the river could be fun ? It is when you
go through rapids and small water falls, fighting the waves, feeling
the sheer exhilaration of coming up toppers with complete safety.
A more personal form of rafting is the kayak in which you are on
a one to one basis with the water, learn to make the Kayak/Canoe
to respond to your every command, enabling you to move about like
an eel through the water.
The snow fed waters of the river Yamuna. Its current before it
plungs into the plains
have all helped to bring white water
river rafting to Haryana. In the stretch from Paonta Sahib to Hathnikund
in Haryana, the river Yamuna is filled with rapids of I and II degree
intensity, which are ideal for amateurs.
Rafting down the Yamuna is a splendid experience. The rafters travel
past the petering hills of lower Himalays: Meander past quit stretches
of the Yamuna, Fringed by forest, maneuvering rapids and shallows,
till the flat lands of Kalesar arrive. The presence of the Kalesar
Sal forest reserve and the Tajewala water-works close at hand, have
some of the most splendid possibilities of Adventure holidays.
A delightful variation in water sport is canoeing and kayaking.
When days are sultry, the sport beckons. For the one who craves
to exercise, there is nothing like an half hour with a kayak.
The sport can be done as two-some or alone with the safety of strapped-on
life jacket. At each water front, there are experienced life guards
to watch against adverse eventualities. Special water sport activities
can be planned for students at Tikkar Tals at Morni Hills, Grey
Pelican Yamuna Nagar and Damdama Lake.
