Hiking Hills of Dhauladhar Range of Himalayas having full of pure oxygen offers more to you in terms of untouched nature away from the so called civilization. Even the water coming out of natural sources is so pure and refreshing that one could not stop himself to stop near by to feel or drink. The beauty of nature is so mesmerizing that we literally forget all our worries of of our civilized worlds. There comes the moment when we sit quietly and do some Mountain Yoga – Pranayam (breathing techniques taught only by experts) to go in to partial meditation state. Believe me it is very difficult for us to climb down against the wish of our souls.
It all started with the Jungle trek when we opened our eyes towards nature and started appreciating it. Jungles are the backbone of our economy and foolishly we are killing all jungles. Well that’s a different story. So we first created a small group of like minded friends to go for jungle trek. We used to pack our lunch boxes and find a suitable trek, assess the threat perception, collect the equipment and just go for it. We love this event most as we get an opportunity to romance with the absolute nature. Later we started encouraging school children to come with us and understand the nature more. There are lot of events/games we organize for the school children while the trek and those events or games as the time passed had actually gone extinct due to the reach of idiot box to every house. It is our endeavor to bring children back to those country games which once we used to play in our childhood.
Fun rock climbing is another activity which children love most. We make them climb the natural rocks big and small with and without ropes. We don’t climb any rock which needs very high professional equipment. We have collected local and only necessary equipment to climb not very difficult rock. The main idea for rock climbing is to have fun and build our fitness. Some children have fear of heights, for them this event is good enough to give them confidence and fun is unlimited.
Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing comprising a large number of interconnected baffled cells. Wing shape is maintained by the suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing, and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside.
Despite not using an engine, paragliders flight can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometers, though flights of one to two hours and covering some tens of kilometers are more the norm. By skillful exploitation of sources of lift, the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand meters.
Water sports is the most thrilling activity we offer to perform in the clear waters of Maharana Pratap Sagar water reservoir:
A kayak is a small, narrow watercraft which is propelled by means of a double-bladed paddle. The word kayak originates from the Greenlandic language, where it is the word qajaq (pronounced [qajaq]). In the UK the term canoe is often used when referring to a kayak. The traditional kayak has a covered deck and one or more cockpits, each seating one paddler. The cockpit is sometimes covered by a spray deck that prevents the entry of water from waves or spray and makes it possible for suitably skilled kayakers to roll the kayak: that is, to capsize and right it without it filling with water or ejecting the paddler.
Sailing comprises wind propulsion of a craft by means of sails or other airfoils and steering it over water, ice or land, depending on the type of craft. A sailor manages the force of the wind on the sails by adjusting their angle with respect to the moving sailing craft and sometimes by adjusting the sail area. The force transmitted from the sails is resisted by forces from the hull, keel, and rudder of a sailing craft, by forces from skate runners for an iceboat, and by forces from wheels for a land sailing craft to allow steering a course on a point of sail with respect to the true wind.
Rowing, often referred to as crew in the United States, is a sport with origins back to Ancient Egyptian times. It is based on propelling a boat (racing shell) on water using oars. By pushing against the water with an oar, a force is generated to move the boat. Here we offer fun lovers to row in country boat which is much balanced and safer in comparison.
Still water rafting and White water rafting are recreational outdoor activities which use an inflatable raft to navigate a river or other body of water. This is often done on whitewater or different degrees of rough water, and generally represents a new and challenging environment for participants. It is advisable to practice still water rafting first and before going for white water rafting.
Swimming is the best exercise and altogether is the best water sport which children of any age liked most. We have a pool of experts swimming trainers and this is the best place to take your water phobia out. My daughter first time jumped in to this water when she was just 8 years old and believe me it was very difficult to bring her out of the water. This is an event which children love to do the whole day. Even hunger does not bother them while this event is on. We artificially conduct swimming competitions in the packages itself to encourage children and adults for swimming.
An endangered species, the Siberian Crane is a very distinctive – and endangered member of the crane family. While it nests in western Siberia throughout the year, the cranes undergo a 4,000 mile journey to India every winter to escape the deathly cold and lack of food in the Siberian regions. Many of them arrive every winters to Maharana Pratap Sagar Lake in Himachal Pradesh. It is one of the paradise for bird watchers and those who want to capture them in cameras.
