Rishikesh is known as the adventure capital of India and truly said this place will definitely calm the thirst of the adventurer within you. Nestled among the Himalayas and the Shivalik range this city is the place to be for all the wander lusters out there. This place was my first adventure travel ever. I have always been an adrenaline junkie and have a bucket list with all these adventure sports I want to do once in my life. What better place to start off with my bucket list than Rishikesh.

My first adventure sport ever was White water rafting from Marine drive to Lakshman jhula. Floating through those rapids it will definitely give you the chills but a lifetime of memories.

Our next stop was Jumpin heights, now this is where you are suppose to be to get that adrenaline rush. Like the tagline of Jumpin Heights says “I’ve Got Guts!!”

Well you definitely need guts to jump from a bridge at a height of 83mts. Our first activity was Bungee jumping. Walked all the way to the yellow bridge with just one thought in my mind “Am I crazy enough to do this?” and then I said to myself “HELL YEAH !! LET’S DO THIS”.

They started with putting the harness. If anybody has ever wondered how safe these activities are then let me assure you people at Jumpin Heights take full care of safety. They checked my harness at least 3 times and then there I was standing at the edge of the bridge all ready to jump, living life at the edge in a literal sense.

The next activity was Flying Fox, the longest flying fox in India. Have you ever had a dream of flying like a bird? Well, I have and this activity definitely fulfilled my dream.

So to all the adventure freaks out there do visit Rishikesh once to bring out the wanderer within you. As it is said “ Life is a daring adventure or nothing”.
