The beauty of Ladakh is beyond words. It’s definitely one of the most famous destinations in India. But the Chadar Trek in this destination is a mind-blowing experience in itself. You get to enjoy the most exquisite view of the snow blanket on the toughest of meadows of the north. This frozen river can be explored by trekking only during the winters that is during January and February as the Zanskar River freezes to make this place idyllic and heavenly.
2. River rafting — Rishikesh
Rishikesh is the hub of adventurous activities in India. You’ll find all the awesome activities like trekking, skiing, sky-diving, scuba diving, horse riding, jungle safari in this town. But the white river rafting is especially very famous in this place. The Ganges is the famous river of the country which even has a religious and mythological significance. When it flows from the high mountains, the force of the water is such that it is thrilling even to look at that gushing cascade of water. No wonder people want to get up close to this by river-rafting here. Best time? Between November to February.
3. Jim Corbett Safari
The list of adventure trips in India is definitely incomplete without mentioning the jungle safari at the Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand. It’s an exciting trip that lets you view the exclusive wildlife of the country very closely. From the famous Bengal tigers to the leopards, such rare species of rare animals can be spotted in this safari. What’s more? You can add a twist to your journey by trekking to the nearby area as well. Try going for this safari between October to June to have a fantastic time viewing these rare animals.
4. Scuba Diving — Andaman
We are sure you love excitement to the core and that’s why scuba diving is your passion. So, if you want to reach out to the underwater flora and fauna, then do drive to one of the most happening adventurous locations of the country — Andaman. You’ll love watching the scorpion fish, octopus, and corrals and much more in the ocean along with swimming to the depths of the ocean. And if you want to see most of the sea animals, then travel here between January to May without fail.
5. Manali to Leh drive
Two of the most gorgeous tourist attractions of the country — Manali and Leh — are connected to each other by some very risky and hair pin twisted roads. To add to the magic, there are also some valleys that are breathtakingly beautiful but quite risky to reach as well. And when you drive from Manali to Leh, you experience a distinct thrill and adventure driving through these perilous yet pulchritudinous roads. Pro tip – Stop at the gleaming lakes, gaze at the dazzling mountain views, and sip piping hot tea at the roads-side tea stalls to get the best of your adventurous journey. And travel during the months between July to September to get the best escapade of your life.
6. Skiing in Gulmarg
Your car rental from Revv would definitely take you to Gulmarg in Kashmir. It’s a fascinating destination with snow almost everywhere you look at. So, when snow is so rich in this place, why won’t you try skiing? Of course, you won’t be able to resist yourself! Try skiing with your buddies at this place and enjoy the falls and slips, turns and twists in thick snow to make your journey more awesome. Naturally, so much snow in Gulmarg can only be seen during the winter months that is from October to February.
7. Dune Bashing — Jaisalmer
Jaisalmer is a popular desert destination! You would have certainly thought of walking on the thick layers of sand. But now you can also experience dune bashing in this thick desert sand. No, we aren’t saying that the camel ride or desert safari isn’t happening, but this experience of dune bashing 30-40 metres tall sand dunes amidst the majestic Thar desert is simply one of a kind. A wild SUV ride with experienced drivers behind the wheel would be thrilling to the core (not for the faint hearted for sure!) Try visiting Jaisalmer any time of the year except the monsoons to experience this adventure.
We know you are on an adventure trip, but never compromise on your safety and the need to take a safe car rental towards these locations is imperative. And when you are driving to these locations, you might also want to know about the famous bungee jumping at Rishikesh, the paragliding in Bir Billing near Delhi, surfing in Goa, skydiving in Mysore, wildlife safari in GIR National Park in Gujarat, and camping in Coorg.
