Rock Climbing in India is quite an enriching experience as it tests your strength, confidence and coordination. An exhilarating feel that it gives, rock climbing took off as a sport in India some 15 years back. With some of the best climbing areas, rock climbing in India is now a popular sport. The Aravali hills, the Western Ghats and the hills of Himachal Pradesh offer a smooth climb. High altitude climbers would enjoy the rock faces at Sonmarg in Jammu and Kashmir and Gangotri in Uttranchal.
Rock climbing is more about balancing than strength and the best season to climb is between October and February. One should strictly avoid monsoons, as the terrain becomes slippery. Though the sport is relatively safe and are graded from 1 to 30, one should not refrain from taking necessary precautions. Climbers to avoid falls should use specialized equipments and safety gears. Once you are all confident and in coordination with the gear, your skill and the technique then get set for the interplay.
