Adventure Spots

Uttaranchal with valleys, peaks, mighty rivers and snow-capped mountains is a great place adventure. It offers some of the best venues for adventure sports such as skiing, river rafting, canoeing, Para- gliding and rock climbing.

The large slopes of Garhwal and Kumaon covered with seasonal snow are an ideal place for skiing during the winter months. 

River rafting

The Himalayas are the source of some of India's mighty rivers. The rivers race down the slopes and cut deep gorges and break into silvery white rapids. The Garhwal and Kumaon hills provide ideal locales for river rafting in swift swirling rivers.

Canoeing

Rishikesh, Dakpathar and the Ramganga in the Corbett National Park are best suited for canoeing. September-November and March-April-May are months for this sport.
