Up above the world so high, on the hills, we get wings to fly. We’ll tell you today about things that you can do in the mountains other than trekking and camping!
So, basically, at the end of the day, we know that we have our two sides – one side romanticists the hills and the other one has fallen in love with beaches. The best part of this love is that it does not change according to seasons.
But to say, in summers, the feeling of escaping into the hills is something which cannot be explained. Cities give us a hard time with its pollution and humidity and so in these situations, hills and the mountains come to the rescue.
Planning a vacation to the serene lap of the hills is a must and we give you a list of fun & thrill-seeking activities you can pursue on the hills. Of course, the hot cup of coffee and sliding in the snow are your priorities but hills are a lot more than what meets the eye.
Camping and mountains have a very strong bond, often carrying all your camping equipment uphill for a night under the stars is relaxing, but here we are to tell you more!
- Mountaineering and Rock Climbing.
Be it any hills that you visit, rock climbing is one of the best activities to do. Rock climbing is especially very popular in the treks offered in the Himalayas. It is totally safe and in fact, one of the most thrilling experiences you will ever have.
The feeling of looking down after climbing so high is indeed noxious but surreal; of course, you do these activities under the supervision of the camp organisation that took you there so there is absolutely no harm.
These are something you must have never done in the city life and you need to explore these kinds of activities to do in the hills so that you gain something from your trip.
We know that you have started to know about things that you can do in the mountains other than trekking and camping, so go the hills. Pick up your worries and tensions. Paraglide and throw them away in the air.
Paragliding is one such activity which takes camp on almost every bucket list. You have literally nothing to hold on to but the thing making you fly. So, I don’t think anything in this world can possibly be more thrilling. Slang Valley near Manali is the best place to para glide. So let’s para glide! wouldn’t that be one of the things that you can do in the mountains?
- RIVER RAFTING
One of the other exciting things that you can do in the mountains is river rafting, it may seem to be the regular boating kind of activity to you but it is a lot more than that, trust me.
Rafting is especially fun because you don’t know what is coming on your way next. Nobody can control the waves after all. They refresh your mind, body and the soul and give you a thrilling lifetime moment. Rafting in Rishikesh is a must. So the sea is calling and you must go.
Combine two of the best products of nature- hills and Snow- you get Skiing. Not only for snow lovers but everyone who treks a snow-capped mountain must give a try at skiing.
This is not only a normal activity but for some people, it is a weekend recreation and for some people, it is also a sport. These activities to do in the hills are simply mind-blowing. Head towards the Himalayas for the best skiing experience of your life.
- GONDOLA RIDE
The gondola is the famous adventure of the place in Kashmir called Gulmarg. It is the best ride in between the mountains which is very fun and thrilling. The ride is somewhat similar to the cable car rides which many of you must have already enjoyed.
But these rides in the mountain and that too in the ice mountains is simply breathtaking. If you are in Gulmarg, you must not miss this ride for sure.
You know what they say, “ These mountains that you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb”. So, what are you waiting for? Book your mountain adventure Togedr!
