India is an excellent destination for all those passionate about relaxing in and underwater. For example, Goa is the destination of choice for both professional and amateur scuba divers thanks to its clean, white sanded beaches, magnificent underwater world, and rich flora and fauna, and owing to its location on a biodiversity hotspot. The city of Pune houses the “Absolute Scuba” – a one-stop shop offering scuba and dive certification courses. In the “Flying fish” scuba diving resort in Calangute, all those searching for new experiences, be it active or relaxed, can explore the magnificent marine life underwater, go water skiing or simply watch the dolphins.
Goa is every surfer’s dream. It presents them with a unique experience of the emerald waves of the warm Arabian Sea. What could be better than to ride the waves and then relax on the white sanded beaches? “Surf Wala” on Arambol beach offer beginners workshops and instructions on azure waters. Here, even the seemingly clumsiest of students will be taught how to surf within a short time. The best time to surf in Goa is the end of September. The monsoon season is between April and September so the water at this time is too calm hence not good for surfers. The surf school “Mumu” located in Mahabalipuram, welcomes students of all ages eager to learn the tricks of this wonderful sport from scratch. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

The “White World Expeditions” is a tour and adventure travel company offering water and camping trips. They organize boat, kayak and rafting trips on water, suitable for those who wish to relax on water without getting too wet while taking in the magnificent sights of the valley. Alternatively, travelers may opt to refresh their mind and body by hiking in the green valleys or going mountain biking or just by watching elephants. In Arunachal Pradesh, you can sail down the waters of the northeast Subansiri River together with “White Water Rafting”. But beware – these trips are not for the faint-hearted – the struggle with the unruly water will test the courage of even the most fearless adventure lovers.
How about a flight over the pink city of Jaipur? The city really does look pink because of the color of the stones used in its construction. Such magnificent sights and unusual urban shapes are laid before the eyes while slowly rising to the sky, sitting in the balloon basket of the “Sky Waltz Balloon Safari”. The beauty of the architecture, the blue zephyr, the warm sun, and cool breeze, will all leave a permanent mark in the heart of each flight participant. It is dazzling to go paragliding over the big and noisy tandem in Jodhpur with the professionals of the flight school “Sky Ventures”, take off on a powered paraglider and go hang-gliding.

The “Flying Fox Jodhpur” in Jodhpur is a center for extreme sports, and thrill-seekers should not miss it for anything. Six ziplines stretched over lakes, gardens, and the fields of the Mehrangarh Museum Reserve, await the heights explorers, ready to fly from the top of the mountain and land on the roof of the old fortress. There is an eco-park here which offers excellent walking or jogging tracks. The Rohtang Pass in Himachal Pradesh is the meeting point of the passionate skiers. A rather dangerous track here offers the tourists full swing motorcycle and off-road vehicle rides. Choose wisely as this entertainment is only for the brave and bestows incredible emotions.
The Khardung La mountain pass located in Ladakh is considered one of the highest elevations in the world and hence guarantees a rush of adrenaline. It presents tourists a ride they will remember all their life. The journey amidst the sparkling snow and ice on a motorcycle or an automobile can be enriched by a mountain climb. Nevertheless, please do not forget that it is more difficult to breathe at high altitudes. It is always cool and fresh here, and the snow is spotless, making this “pass” a popular tourist destination. The brisk beauty of the pass, the peace, and tranquility, are a worthy reward for the enduring struggle with oxygen starvation and the persistent battle of snow-covered heights.
