Skiing in Kashmir

India is not unfamiliar with skiing, Gulmarg in Jammu and Kashmir is the best place to indulge in skiing adventure sports.

River Rafting
The challenge of holding your balance in the midst of speedy water is what river rafting is all about. And India, with a large network of rivers, is the place to be if you wish to enjoy the thrills of rafting. Originating from the great heights of the mountains, especially the great Himalayas, these rivers speed down in a way that makes you feel as if they are in a hurry to reach the plains and enjoy a long overdue freedom.

Enroute they whirl, froth, foam and crash over rocky gorges and boulders. They make your raft wobble and wet you with an icy splash in an attempt to divert your attention. In brief, the rivers in India exude every bit of their untamed qualities and challenge you to overpower them. Also, they put to test your strength, both physical and mental, and it is in this that the whole excitement of rafting lies.

By 1920 the tout had successfully established in the waters of the Brinji, Lidder, Sindh, Nambal, Madhumati, Eric etc. The Lidder and Sindh streams proved best of trout.
