Rock climbing in India

Rock climbing in India

With the fantastic variety of terrain found all across the country, rock climbing is a big attraction in India. From the Himalayas in the north to the boulders down south in Hampi, Karnataka, India has a lot to offer. Rock climbers are taking advantage of this. Whether you’re an amateur or a professional, the most popular rock climbing spots are the Himachal region, Malshej Ghats in Maharashtra, Hampi in Karnataka, and even parts of West Bengal.

Rock climbing in India: Himachal Pradesh

The region in and around Himachal Pradesh provides some great options for rock climbing. These include Manali, Setan, Solang, Chota Dhara, and Dharamshala. One of the best spots of the region includes the Miyar Valley. Parvati Valley also provides a picture-perfect view of the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas.

Rock climbing in India: Maharashtra

The Western Ghats are a rock climber’s paradise. In Mumbai, the Borivali National Park offers plenty of rock faces for big and small climbs. During the monsoon, there is waterfall rappelling that takes place at multiple waterfall spots all over the ghats. Ajoba Fort Hill, Sandhan Valley, and Kalavantin Pinnacle are some of the other popular spots for rock climbing in India.

Rock climbing in India: Karnataka

A few hours away from Bangalore, you’ll find rock climbers converging at Badami and Kambakkam. In the Tumkur region of Karnataka, Madhugiri is a rather challenging destination for climbers. There is a huge monolith formation that offers a good challenging climb, and is a major attraction. You’ll also find the ruins of an ancient Gopalakrishna temple atop the rocks.

Known for its prehistoric monuments and picturesque structures, Hampi also is a great rock climbing destination. Here the rocks look like they’ve only just emerged from the earth, and are huge and primitively rough.

Rock climbing in India: West Bengal

For amateurs wanting to have a go at rock climbing, Susunia Hills offers easy peaks. The lush greenery with historic sites along the way makes for a delightful ascent. It’s believed a hill fort was built by King Chandravarman there.

Rock climbing equipment: Rock climbing harness

For a safe comfortable climb, it is important you choose the right rock climbing equipment. This includes the right ropes and buckles, but the rock climbing harness is critical. Choose one that fits you comfortably, will not slide down on your hips, and has leg loops that allow you to move and stretch.

A responsible climber performs regular checks on his or her rock climbing equipment. If your harness is fraying or excessively discoloured, or has stretched in some spots, it is time to retire it. If you have the slightest doubts about the efficacy of your rock climbing equipment, get it checked by an expert, or avoid the risk and get new equipment.
