With the holiday season round the corner, it is time to plan something interesting instead of the usual guitar and bongo lessons. Choose adventure sports to get the adrenalin flowing.
Be it parasailing, paragliding, trekking, rafting or snorkeling, there is hardly any sport that Aayush Makkar, an IP University student, has not tried. Says he, “Every month or two I go out and explore a new destination. I have been to Shimla, Dharamsala, Goa and the Andamans to name a few destinations and have tried almost every adventure sport they offer.”
Ask him why he’s such a thrill-seeker, and the reply is, “Among other things, it helps me overcome fears.”
Modern School student Raagini Sehgal, too, gives the thumbs up to the thrill of attending summer camp. “It was a great learning experience to be a part of Camp Anubhav (an experiencial learning holiday for 9-16 year-olds organised by Rocksport Adventures). The various activities helped me stay fit, both physically and mentally. I have never been so close to nature and it helps in studies too.”
