1) Go Camping 

The first step in mountaineering is to set up the base camp i.e. your shelter and this can either be a simple tarp, a basic tent or an elaborate luxury tent. People can camp by simply tying a mosquito proof hammock between two trees, take shelter in a cave, tie a tarp in the open if its not raining or snowing or more often than not, a simple dome tent serves the purpose of providing shelter from weather and creepy crawlies.

Roasting fresh catch on the camp cookout, being close to nature while hiking, bathing under the waterfalls deep inside the woods and sitting around the fire on the bank of a river hearing the sounds of a forest are just a few of the reasons why people enjoy camping.

Nothing lifts the spirits and warm the cockles of one’s heart like sitting around a bonfire. All our eco camps offers an intimate alfresco fireside gatherings of friends and family, where they sing traditional camping songs.

1) Go Glamping

Being roasted in the sun and close to creepy crawlies, skipping showers, going to the bathroom in the woods, and sleeping on the cold, hard and most likely wet ground while being bitten silly by mosquitos are reasons why many don’t enjoy camping. With glamping, those who yearn to escape the city and become one with nature can do so, just in a more glamorous and comfortable way than typical camping.

Glamping not only offers a variety of luxury campsites around the world but we also create a glamping tented camp just for you and your friends, family or team mates at the location of your choice. Our glamping sites features covered 3 course dining using fine cutlery, luxe tents with proper beds & solar lights, composting toilets & showers etc. Glamping with us lets travellers select location and interest areas etc. to find a glamping site fit for a king. And if it isn’t there, we will make it for you, wherever, whenever.

2) Hikes & Walks

The next step in mountaineering is to climb them. Pack your haversack lightly and tread off to new lands to discover hidden trails, mountain views, amazing landscapes and friendly villagers. An escort guide is always provided for your hiking activity.

Here we use a combination of hiking and when you come to a vertical cliff, you use rock climbing or bouldering. Often you use jumaar or a metal ladder to climb short but vertical cliff.

Whether your goal is a fort, or a forest, a waterfall, or simply an amazing view from the top, trekking will make you experience nature first hand, as you heed the mountain’s call. Observing nature around you, listening and absorbing every sound and sight on your walk, without a single word, is an incredible experience by itself.

3) Skiing

Coming down a snow covered slope on your alpine skis while wearing ski suit and your ski goggle is one of the most popular adventure in the world, so much so that it is an holiday category in itself. In India, come Feb, and Gulmarg in Kashmir and Auli in Garhwal is where you will see skiing action.

Often during mountaineering, you have to cross deep valleys, gorges and a raging river, and you cross over using a mix of burma bridge, valley crossing and river crossing.

When you climb up a tree or hill side using a rope, it’s jumaaring and when you use a metal ladder, its called ladder climbing. It looks easy but isn’t and a good level of fitness will definitely make it easier.

7) Valley Crossing

While crossing a valley, you tie a strong rope at both the ends, and then crawl upside down a rope, to get to your goal on other side of deep valley.

8) River Crossing 

Try walking across a river in full spate or on rapids, together with your team-mates. It’s fun and a good dose of adventure but not without your safety life jackets, for both swimmers and non-swimmers!

Hang gliding is an air sport in which a pilot flies a light and unmotorized foot launchable aircraft

2) Hot Air Ballooning

5) Base Jumping

Climb to the top of a cliff and take a jump! Ofcourse you are wearing a safety harness. For a few moments you defy gravity and hurtle towards the ground at 9.8 meters per second before you are held in place just a few meters above the ground. It’s thrilling to say the least!

About Overland Day Trips

Being roasted in the sun and close to creepy crawlies, skipping showers, going to the bathroom in the woods, and sleeping on the cold, hard and most likely wet ground while being bitten silly by mosquitos are reasons why many don’t enjoy it. With glamping, those who yearn to escape the city and become one with nature can do so, just in a more glamorous and comfortable way than typical camping. Glamping with Ecomantra lets travellers select location and interest areas etc. to find a glamping site fit for a king. And if it isn’t there, we will make it for you, wherever, whenever.
