    Bring out the bravery in you

    Rappelling is an exciting and a very adventurous sport to experience, but you need to always have trained and certified instructors around to keep you safe and sound. Remember, while rappelling one could face issues such as suffocation, loss of breath and other breathing issues, especially when the forces of the waterfall take over and you are descending with the force of nature. In some cases you could also turn upside down when you slip and fail to hold your foot against a rocky slope. Hence it is very important that one should only practice this adventurous sport under the watchful eyes of an instructor around. And if you know you wouldnt be physically fit to go rappelling, you could try other adventure sports around in Maharashtra, such as rafting, camping, or even paragliding as well.
