Trekking is surely one of the best ways to explore, the passes and the valleys cutting through the mountain ranges of Himachal. The best terrain for trekking lies between the gentle Shiwaliks and the tough upper reaches of the Greater Himalayas.

Patalsu, Bharmour, and Manali offer good possibilities for rock-climbing enthusiasts.

River Rafting
River Rafting is a thrilling way to discover the tremendous possibilities offered by the snow-fed rivers of Himalayas.

The best rivers for this sport are the Beas, the Spiti, the Chandrabhaga and the Satluj which has spectacular rapids upto Tattapani.

Helicopter Skiing & Parachute Jump:
Some of the snow-covered slopes of Himachal become ideal for skiing, and heli-skiing in Winter.

The Mountaineering Institute of Manali orgainses skiing courses from January onwards, while the Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation does so simultaneously at Narkanda.

Recreational Skiing:
The slopes of Kufri and Narkanda, 16 km and 64 km respectively, from Shimla, are ideal for recreational skiing.
