Rappelling / Rock Climbing

Located in the lap of the Himalayas, Rishikesh has all the ingredients that a holidaymaker looks for. Among other adventure activities one can enjoy here is rock climbing and rappelling. You must have watched people climbing up a cliff and then rappelling (climbing down). It is really a lot of fun indulging in this exciting adventure sport. And doing it in Rishikesh has its own unique flavour. Rock climbing and rappelling can be translated as ascent and descent respectively.

ROCK CLIMBING
Rock ClimbingThe Shivalik Himalayas in Rishikesh features some of the most thrilling cliffs, a picturesque scenery in itself. After you have got a taste of river rafting, it is next time to enjoy rock climbing. Whether you want to set out a short trip and want to go on an expedition, you can choose an option that you prefer and enjoy. The adventure activity can be enjoyed by all (men, women and kids) who are physically fit and have the stamina to challenge the cliffs. Before the activity begins, you can have an introductory session with expert climbers and instructors. An introductory session informs you of the basic techniques you can use while climbing rocks. The best part about this adventure is that it does not only taste your physical endurance, but it also tests your capability to control your mind.

ESSENTIAL EQUIPMENT
For a new climber, it is essential to know about the essential equipment used during a rock climbing adventure. Some of the most essential gear needed for this sport include harness, shoes, belay device and carabiner, helmet, chalk bag and chalk. Made up of nylon, harness is an essential equipment used to have a safe climb. While buying a harness, you need to ensure that it is comfortable and is a good fit. Likewise, climbing shoes also need to fit your feet snuggly as compared to normal shoes. Snuggly fitted shoes provide with a good rock feel and better control over the rock. Available in a wide range, a belay device is meant to prevent fall during a climb. Chalk bags are essential because they keep your hands dry during the climb.


RAPPELLING
RappellingThe adventure of descending down a rock, relying 100% on the equipment, is called rappelling. Like rock climbing, rappelling in Rishikesh is also great fun. Geared with the right equipment, you can double up the joy of this adventure. Rappeling down a cliff can be done in a variety of ways. Even when you have with you standard climbing gear, you should know how it use the gear for a safe rappel down the cliff.

ESSENTIAL EQUIPMENT
Equipment needed while rappelling down a cliff include athletic tapes, climbing gear, harness, helmets, ropes and shoes. It is very important to test the rappel anchor before you set it. One end of the rope should be fixed to the rappel. Another important thing to remember here is that the rope does not pass over sharp edges while the other end of the rope reaches the ground. The rappel device should be attached to both the rope and the harness. Instructors will guide you on how to use the equipment and have a safe rappelling down the cliff.
