The Scope of adventure sports in Rajasthan includes both the traditional games enjoyed by the Maharajas and newer sports loved by today’s youth. Tourists in Rajasthan do not just have the royal forts and palaces to see but also royal games to enjoy. Other games too have an endearing charm and enthusiasm that leaves the tourists asking for more.
Rajasthan hosts a number of adventure sports ranging from trekking, camping, aero sports, water sports, boating, angling, etc.
Trekking and Rajasthan! Sounds strange! But it’s true. The topography of this state is such that it provides excellent opportunities for the trekkers. The desert regions and the hill ranges are ideal for trekking in Rajasthan. The famous regions for trekking in Rajasthan are Aravalis to Kumbhalgarh, Abu
Road to Guru Shikhar (highest peak of Aravali), Thandi Beri to Kumbhalgarh fort, or Ranakpur to Rawali Tatgarh.
Rajasthan’s topography is such that it is suitable for various safaris like jeep, camel, horse, and elephant. The major share of the limelight is without doubt hogged by camel and elephant safari; nonetheless, jeep safari is equally interesting and widely enjoyed. Each safari has its own charm and caters to the varying preferences of tourists. Sitting on a jeep, elephant, or camel, tourists explore every nook and corner of Rajasthan while enjoying the journey itself.
Ironically, the apparently desert state of Rajasthan hosts a lot of water sports. The lakes of Rajasthan are excellent for cruising, boating, and angling. The lakes of Udaipur are especially famous for boating adventure. The streamer cruises are loved by travelers.
As kids, playing in the sand always delighted us. This childhood entertainment is taken to a new level with Dune bashing in Rajasthan. Better known as desert safari, this is a form of off-roading, using an off-road vehicle to explore sand dunes of dessert lands. Experiencing the wide expanse of the desert, the ethereal magic of sunset and a lively Rajasthani entertainment makes for a splendid night to remember.
Overnight camping too has received an overwhelming response in Rajasthan. The desert territories of the state mainly have camping tours where the travelers can enjoy sojourning in a tent under a moonlit sky. The bonfire, the traditional cultural performances by the dancers and musicians is simply awesome.
