  • Hiking : It is an outdoor activity of going on an extended walk for pleasure or exercise in natural surroundings.
  • Trekking : This is similar to hiking but involves walking in the mountainous areas.
  • Rock-Climbing : It is the climbing of mountains, especially the scaling of rock faces by means of special equipment and techniques.
  • Rappelling : The activity involves descending of a vertical surface, as a cliff or wall, by sliding down a belayed rope that is passed under one thigh and over the opposite.
  • Jumaring : It is nothing but the art of ascending a slope by rope, using a clamp with a handle that can move freely up a rope on which it is clipped but locks when downward pressure is applied.
  • The Sahyadri Hills(Western Ghats) of Goa are ideal for under taking any of the mountaineering activities. If you visit Valpoi, Mollem and Sanguem, you are going to be assured of abundant natural beauty. Some popular sites for trying out your skills and physical strength in Goa are - Mahavir wildlife Sanctuary, Devil's Canyon, Tambdi Surla Temple, Vageri Hill, Krishnapur Canyon and Chandrasurya Temple.
