Challenge Yourself At These Adventure Sports & Activities Near Pune
One of the most exciting, gripping, action-packed adventure sports that will put to test your love for challenges is bungee jumping. Not everybody has the guts to literally see in the eyes of danger and still manage to conquer it. If you are daring enough, we urge you to go bungee jumping at Della Adventures, around 65 km from Pune, in Lonavala. Jump from a height of 45m and let yourself loose in the air and let gravity take its course. Enjoy this sport at INR 1500 per person.
Waterfalls are one of the most scenic views, one of the best places to enjoy yourselves playing under the water with your gang. But imagine climbing it down, on the wet surfaces, water getting thrown at you with a gushing speed and strong force. Sounds electrifying enough, right? The waterfall at Madhe Ghat is the perfect place to indulge in this challenging escapade. Here, you have to rappel down 120 feet with the water drenching you completely and adding up to the difficulty level. It is packed with high level of adventure, just 56 km away from Pune and costing you INR 800 per person.
Rock climbing may not look like a real adventure, especially the artificial one, but it does give you an adrenaline rush and thrill. Scaling the steep, vertical height is a task. There are many centres in Pune that train the amateurs, but we suggest rock climbing at Malshej Ghat, especially during the winter season.

Row through those calm waters, sometimes a little swift, surrounded by picturesque forests in Kolad, 113 kms away from Pune at just INR 450 per person.
