There’s something about a new year. Even though it’s just a new date in the calendar, it feels like so much more. It feels like a fresh page, a new leaf and a new beginning. It’s the time to set new goals, resolutions and give yourself a chance to start over. We’ve already begun creating our bucket list for the coming year, and it’s an exciting one! There are so many beautiful places to travel to which are at a stone throw distance from Pune, and with so many adventurous things to do!

Paragliding in Kamshet

Witness the beauty of the Sahyadri ranges and valleys from high above. Start your year by soaring, literally, with an exciting paragliding experience in Kamshet. A daylong course will take you through a tutorial, while you train with a set of professional pilots and other flying enthusiasts. Turn your trip into an even more exciting journey by camping overnight in Kamshet or booking a small villa for your gang.

River Rafting in Kundalika River, Kolad

Enjoy a getaway into the thick of nature, by driving down for a weekend in Kolad. Book a hut in the middle of the forest or on the lake for your group of 6. Spend the evening relaxing by the river and head to a thrilling night trail into the forest. Spend an exhilarating afternoon the next day river rafting in the refreshing waters of the Kundalika River.

Waterfall Rappelling in Madhe Ghat

What says adventurous like being tied down to a harness while you go down the slope with water gushing at you. Being drenched by the waterfall not only adds to the thrill but also increases the difficulty level in case you’re looking for a challenge. There are many places for rappelling near Pune, but the Madhe Ghat waterfall is one of the most beautiful spots you’ll find.

Bunjee Jumping in Della Adventures

Bungee Jumping is known to be one of the most popular adventure sports around the world. Della Adventures in Lonavala offers you the experience from a height of 45 m. They also have a myriad of options for all sorts of adventure sports, like ATV rides, Zip Lining, Zorbing and much more. So the next time you’re planning a trip to Tiger Point, take a detour on your way back and top at Della!

Lake Side Camping in Pawna

Not exactly an adventure sport in everyone’s books, but nothing says digital detox like getting away from all the crowd and noise of the city to a serene spot. Spend the evening by the bonfire and wake up to the sunrise. If you book through an organization you’ll get a washroom setup with running water, hot meals and tea. If you’re feeling adventurous though, you can go completely on your own.
