More adventure tourism opportunities in India could soon be available to tourists.
The growing adventure tourism sector in India is to receive official government backing, which could mean that even more people will get to experience the thrill of white water rafting or forest treks in the country.
Up until now, the major site for this type of activity was in Himachal Pradesh, which is best reached by taking flights to Delhi, but soon the adventures could be cropping up from the Himalayas in the north to the Indian Ocean shores in the south.
Officials have earmarked a number of land and water-based pastimes including mountaineering, trekking, river running, hang gliding, paragliding and bungee jumping, with health and safety regulations already under review.
The Ministry of Tourism is also set to offer extra financial support for schemes in the adventure tourism sector so that it can begin to expand via implementing new training and infrastructure programmes.
