The beauty of sojourn oceans can be felt from the top too! That is by parasailing, where the rider is towed through the equipment by a vehicle that reminds us of parachute.

Scuba diving is for minute examinations, but if you crave for miniature view of the blue then parasailing is for you. With a motor boat at the front that propels your flight in to air or at lower speed on the waters too.

If you are training with a pilot then no need of training as is mandatory in scuba diving, but if you are on your own then training is a must. It is one of the most popular water sports in Baga, Calangute and Candolim beaches of Goa.

# River rafting

Diving, gliding are the one side to relish the water, along with them is another way to face the waters turbulent behavior facing the crux and enjoying the challenge.

# Bungee jumping

Jumping in air is not much of an adventure but to jump into the air as free fall gives you an instant adrenalin rush. Freely falling down to abyss is something dangerous, and can only be done by Spiderman. But the prime difference here is Spiderman has his web string in hand to hold him and here is a harness belted to your waist.

You need guts to undergo this experience but once you do it, you will fall in love with the sport as it helps you face you fears and overcome them.

Jumping Heights at Rishikesh, Ozone Adventures in Bangalore, Gravity Adventure Zone in Goa are a few places where you can test your courage while Bungee jumping.

paagliding# Paragliding

Jumping off a cliff is like something dangerous to life, but not if you are equipped with the survival gear in place. It is a crazy sport in which Paragliders sit on a harness attached to a lightweight fabric wing, by which they can fly for an hour or so.

Both Billing and Manali, located in Himachal, offer wonderful scenic view of Himalayan ranges as you glide in the air, slowly descending down to the ground. Nandi Hills near Bangalore and Pawana dam near Pune are other favorite paragliding locations that you ought to visit.
