Adventure. Do you actually remember the word? When was the last time you went out
for some real adventures? Well, you might be having some wrong perceptions about
"adventure", considering your everyday life in this concrete jungle as one big
adventure (in a way, you may call it an adventure). Well if that is the case, you
need to think twice over it.
Let's get back to the adventures that we define here and see the difference from the
real adventures that requires high adrenaline.
Climbing staircase (that too, once in a while, when your elevator is not working)
doesn't count as an adventure. Your computer mouse doesn't come under wildlife.
Standing under the shower is not same as standing under the waterfall. Wondering in
the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city is miles of freshness away from
getting lost in the thick lush green jungle.
Which floor do you live in? Well, you might enjoy the height that you live in but
never ever compare that with the heavenly mountains... standing tall and proud. So
just pump up your adrenaline, head for a real adventure, feel the nature, defy the
law of gravity?
When you are heading for a mountaineering trip, follow the instructions of the guide
properly to avoid any mishap. Wear comfortable and convenient clothes, for e.g.
Cargo pants, multi-pocketed jackets, good hiking shoes. Carry all the basic
accessories but make sure it's not overweighed. But before starting off, get
medically examined. Also ensure that at least one or two members of the team have
experience of high altitude climbing.
It's always fun to try something new in life. And what can be more exciting than
climbing the steep rocky mountain. It might look quite scary, but then what is life
without some challenges? Of course, you've seen Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible
with all those actions. Well he had a mission. And here, your mission is to feel the
For such adventure, it's definitely not a cakewalk. First you need to sign up for
basics with an experienced instructor. Climbing is an inherently dangerous activity
that can result in serious injury, so proper training and equipment before
attempting this activity is seriously recommended.
No matter how colorful or fast your life gets in the city, you surely need to
escape from it at least once in a year. It's time to feel the nature. It's time you
realize that it's not just humans that the world belongs to. Indeed, there's nothing
like exploring, making your vision broader.
However, few things are needed to know before taking the wild side. Learn about the
place, the culture, the habitat, various types of species found and their
behavior. Make sure you are under an experienced guide. Never take chances with
wildlife, even the cutest looking species might turn out to be dangerous.
High speed, high energy, high life... just what rafting is all about. Racing with
the current. Waters splashing all over you. Not a single word but the sound of water
hitting the rocks. Isn't it amazing when your mind is free for once and you feel
nothing but yourself, accompanied by the force of nature. But before you head for
this mind-boggling activity, enroll with an experienced group that organizes rafting.
Make sure that you don't have any physical ailment. Don't take chances if don't know
how to swim. And most importantly, the high-powered spirit is all it takes.
