The Shivalik Himalayas in Rishikesh features some of the most thrilling cliffs, a picturesque scenery in itself. After you have got a taste of river rafting, it is next time to enjoy rock climbing. Whether you want to set out a short trip and want to go on an expedition, you can choose an option that you prefer and enjoy. The adventure activity can be enjoyed by all (men, women and kids) who are physically fit and have the stamina to challenge the cliffs. Before the activity begins, you can have an introductory session with expert climbers and instructors. An introductory session informs you of the basic techniques you can use while climbing rocks. The best part about this adventure is that it does not only taste your physical endurance, but it also tests your capability to control your mind.
