Being situated at the foothills of the great Himalayas, Uttarakhand is a dream come true for adventure sports lovers. With more than half the area of Uttarakhand under a rugged and mountainous topography, the place is ideal for adventure sports, besides the usual tourist attractions of nature and religion. Being blessed by the glacial river Ganga, Uttarakhand is counted amongst the top water sport destinations in India. The region is dotted with numerous streams which flows through rocky terrains and dense forests. This makes Uttarakhand renowned for water adventure activities like white water rafting, kayaking, canoeing and water skiing.
Besides the challenging streams, Uttarakhand also offers its tourists a rich blend of undulated terrains, rocky cliffs and densely forested regions. These spots in Uttarakhand are very well suited for trekking, rock climbing, mountaineering and skiing, if one wishes to explore the snow capped trenches during winters. Other popular adventure sports in Uttarakhand include paragliding, camping and jeep safari.
