Ten-Second Takeaway

For all you wall-climbers, trekkers, rafting enthusiasts, para-sailors and general daredevils, Mars Adventures makes sure your experience is truly, out of this world.

Feel The Adrenalin

Be it exploratory trekking and river rafting you’d like to try {or maybe you’re the veteran level} or perhaps you want to learn wall-climbing and bouldering, Mars Adventures is a one-stop-shop for daredevils and wannabe daredevils alike. The good thing though is whichever end of the spectrum you lie on, founder of the enterprise, K Kameshwar Rao, will ensure you’re treated with the same respect.

Hard Rock

Wall climbers who are just starting out, we recommend signing up for sessions at Kanteerava Stadium {there’s a slightly intimidating 50-foot wall here}, Phoenix Market City or the PLaY Arena for training before you hit the real rocks and boulders. When you’re a pro {ish}, join the teams for climbs at the hills of Badami and Ramnagaram. We’ve taken to this sport and loving our new found flexibility, co-ordination and showing off abilities. What? It’s fun to show off sometimes. You climb a rocky hill and then not feel triumphant!

Taking Flight

If land is too passé, fear not, fellow thrill seeker! Parasailing and river rafting will ensure you get your dose of adrenalin pumping activities. The former, usually organised in Hoskote or Jakkur, is great even for non-pros as it can be done in tandem with an expert while river rafting is indeed, a group sport to start with. Dandeli’s river Kali, the Cauvery in the Coorg District and the Netravati in the Chikmagalur district are best known for rapids, and there you’re likely to be. We also do love their rope challenges which is pretty much an obstacle course but in the air – either high in the trees or just off the ground. Rappelling, zip-lining or ladders, this will test your strength and wit.

So, what you waiting for? Strap on a life vest, and jump right into the action, folks!

#LBBTip

They have a pre-mountaineering course which trains you for high-altitude climbing and is a very rigorous programme. But if you’re aiming to scale the Himalayas, this one’s for you – a true test of skill and endurance before you even hit the mountains.
