The biggest problem any adrenaline junkie and adventure sports lover faces is that they believe they have to travel outside Delhi for thrill-seeking. What if I told you that you don't need to do that anymore? That there are enough places in and around Delhi where you can satisfy your craving for adventure and thrill. Wouldn't you be rushing to these spots as soon as possible? I know I would! So, here's a list of 7 adventure sports you can experience right here in Delhi.
If you're a plan of paragliding, our very own Gurgaon has quite a unique experience for you in store. Air Safari is actually a twist on paragliding - a small automobile is attached to a parachute which operates with the help of a motor, harness and a propeller. It'll help you fulfil your childhood dream of soaring in the sky like a bird. But don't worry, there are trained pilots to assist you so that you can do it without fear.

You won't have to travel far to do it either!

If you're looking for a place that'll offer activities like rock climbing, zorbing, cliff jumping, flying fox and obstacle course, all in one place, then you need to head over to Camp Wild. Not only that, but they also have eco-lodges and safari tents for you to spend a night in. You know its good since it has been used for MTV Roadies along with various magazines and news channels.

Have you always wanted to shoot your friends but with less-drastic consequences? Lol! Pacific Mall, Subhash Nagar has a paintball arena where you can run around and attack people with colour. It's not only super fun, but it's also therapeutic. So, take your gang of girls with you and fire away.

Yes we know that rock climbing has got nothing on real mountain climbing but it's still quite an adventure nonetheless. Indian Mountaineering Foundation next to South Campus, Delhi University is the best mountaineering and rock-climbing institution in India and no matter how much experience you have, they have rock-climbing walls for all.

I've been fascinated with off-road biking since the time I saw those cool dirt-biking scenes in a Hollywood movie as a child. And now, this activity is available right here in the city.

Any rookie can be a part of this too, as they have trained professionals to look after you.
