A major chunk of the Adventure sports will be Water sports as the location itself is Tehri Lake, which is of 44sqkms in area formed by the pristine waters of Bhagirathi River. The various sports facilities are in pipeline at Tehri Lake are:
Water Skiing is just like Skiing in snow minus the snow, instead of snow capped mountains you get a chance to ski on the waters. In water skiing you are given skis to be tied to the feet and then holding a rope which is tied to a motor boat you are taken for a ride in the waters.
Jet Skis, also called water scooters are a single person vehicle designed to travel in water. All of us have seen the Bollywood actors riding these machines in movies, but now you can also enjoy a ride on a Jet Ski and that too not at any beach but between the hills of Himalayas at Tehri Lake.
Kayaking is a water sport alien to India in which a person sits in a Kayak and braves the current of water. Kayaking can be done in white water as well as in calm water of any Lake.
We are all familiar with rafting, white water rafting is one of the most popular adventure sports in India, and Rishikesh is the place which comes in everyone’s mind when we talk about rafting. But now apart from Rishikesh you will be able to enjoy Rafting at Tehri Lake.
In Water Zorbing the person is made to sit inside a giant Plastic ball which is transparent which is them left to float in the water so that you get the feeling of walking on water. Currently you can find Zorbing in many water parks of India, but all of them are held in small ponds. But imagine yourself Zorbing above a Lake having an area of 44sq kms .? Now that will be a surreal experience.
Also known as Parakiting, in this water sports a person is towed behind a motorboat while being attached to a specially designed Parachute, unlike skydiving the parachute remains attached to the person. You will find yourself closer to mountains while parasailing at Tehri.
