If this is what adventure sounds like, read on about activities that are eccentric to the core but have a super-high thrill quotient.
Conquer Hotness—Try Lava Boarding
You may have heard of snowboarding and sand-skiing, but lava boarding! Riding a board on volcanic rocks could be unforgiving if you have never tried skiing and boarding in the first place. You can taste the heat from close quarters in Nicaragua. Oh yes! It is 100% legal to board on the breath-taking volcano. An active volcano on Cerro Negro in Leon, Nicaragua is the only destination on the planet where you can sled on wood, ascending from a height of 2388 feet. Some adventurists have even tried Mount Yasur in Vanuatu for lava boarding, but Black Hill is truly awe-inspiring.
Swimming in Death Pool- Jellyfish Diving
Always knew jellyfish as killers, but swimming with them? Swimming with them, knowing they will sting you is something that defies the concept of intelligence. However, there is a lake in Palau. Micronesia where you can snorkel and scuba dive alongside jellyfishes amidst breath-taking underwater backdrop. The squishy feeling of getting stung by jellyfishes could scare a normal diver to death. Add the moments when you trespass into shark territories and coral patches. It could well be the most Photogenic Casualty you will ever experience in life…
Kayak Safari—with Crocodiles, Sharks, and Hippos
Your heart will stop at the view of St. Lucia in South Africa. Looks deceive, and that is exactly what tourists and adventure enthusiasts vouch for, Rightly called the Death Cage, kayaking through the wild waters of iSimangaliso Wetlands is an unpredictable trip. Get chased by crocodiles, while you negotiate those mega-sized hippos on the shore and hundreds of other aquatic animals that you would rather stay away from if you were a normal “boring” person.
Free-dive into Abyss—Dean’s Blue Hole
There are two possibilities—either you will come out alive ecstatic, or get lost in the deepest pocket on the unknown, unexplored underwater abyss. Ranked as the deepest blue hole on the planet, Deep Blue Hole is a poetic experience with stomach-churning results. You can descend to up to 20 meters which suddenly widens into a sinkhole of 200 meters, and only hope survives here. Hope of resurfacing with breath intact.
Free-diving into blue holes is a crazy experience, considering there is no equipment involved. Just fins and your breath, that’s it! Other sinkholes where you can free dive are Boesmansgat (South Africa), Zacaton (Mexico) and Dragon Hole (Paracel Islands, South China Sea).
Spelunking and Exploration– Leux de Evans, France
What is spelunking? For a layman, it is cave exploration. There are still hundreds of caves in France, Germany and Swiss Alps that are yet to be explored, Insane to the core, spelunking involves rock climbing, mining, kloofing and hiking through the smallest holes between rock openings. Rappel past the underground cave rivers and swim into the sinkholes, if there is something you would probably miss here is running around the stony trails left by ancestors who once used these caves for protection,
Spelunking is a dangerous, adventurous activity taken up as a group task, where participants have to face daunting funnels, creepy dark caves, icy waters and attacks by poisonous flora and fauna. Add to it the danger of being engulfed in obnoxious gases and risk of hypothermia.
North Pole Marathon
Tagged as the coolest marathon escapade on the planet, North Pole offers a running experience of a lifetime. What’s more—there is a systematic selection process in place to let only fittest and most able runners into the event, Running 27 miles in subzero temperatures at the farthest point on the planet can raise hell on the feet of distant runners who have tracked 40+ miles on attractive condition.
Running on ice is far from an ideal footing, and add the worst possible climatic conditions… Chilled hands, frosted nostrils and blocked vision— and still running to conquer the Pole. It does not get any tougher than this. If this does not inspire you—here’s motivation:
All these Adventure sporting events unite senses with a latent compassion towards life… Let go of the fear and attachment to safety. In short—Live Life as it comes.
