According to me, life is like a spin and we all are the spinners of it. In the end, we all are going to come back from where we all started. At the age of one, our parents helped us to stand and walk on our own, and at the age of seventy again we will be helpless to walk by ourselves. So in between, you just got a specific set of time when you can experience your life truly.
Life is all about creating something new and that too of your own. Always try to add some new flavours or thrills to it to find the best version of yourself. From learning how to stand on your own feet to building your career, somehow we often forget being truly happy. After a certain age, we all should find some ways which will spice up our life. I got a list top five thrilling activities that you should certainly go for before you die. Let’s get into those quickly.
Skydiving or Parachuting is one of the most thrilling activities one can ever experience in their lifetime. It is often considered as the extreme sports due to all the risk involved.
On October 22, 1797, André-Jacques Garnerin, the inventor of the parachute made the first parachute jump from a hydrogen balloon 3,200 feet (980 m) above Paris.
You can imagine how you will feel when you will actually do it. So, hold on your breathe for few seconds and jump.
Leh Ladakh Road Trip
The Leh Ladakh road trip is often said to be one of the most breathtaking experiences ever. You can’t understand how it feels or enjoy the thrills by just looking at the photographs. While driving or even riding your bikes, every single second will be an extreme moment for you.
There are two most preferred routes to reach here. The first route is from Manali to Leh via Keylong and Sarchu. A 14 hrs journey, the distance from Manali to Leh is approximately 473 km. One can also make halts at Tandi, Jispa, Sarchu, and Pang in this route. The second route is from Srinagar to Leh via Kargil and Lamayuru. An approximately 11 hrs journey, the distance from Srinagar to Leh is close to 419 km. Drass, Kargil, Shargol, Tingmosgang, Sham valley are some of the campsites along this route.
If you want to feel the real relaxation of life then you will find it there while riding through the silent roads.
Those who have already gone for scuba diving will know what an amazing experience it was. Maybe it was a once in a lifetime opportunity for those who want to discover a whole new world but under the water. But for those who are planning or have kept it on the “To-do List” must go for this recreational diving as soon as possible. The joy of seeing colourful fishes waddling away by your side or even the beautiful coral reefs will certainly be an experience that you’ll not forget easily.
For those who want to fly like a bird in an open sky, Paragliding would be the most suitable option. As we all know Paragliding is a lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. This adventure sport comes with its own risks but using of proper equipment’s like wing designed for the pilot’s size and skill level, helmet, a reserve parachute, and a cushioned harness along with proper training can be a once in a lifetime opportunity. There are few spots in India where you can go for this recreational sport, but Paragliding at Solang Valley is often considered as one of the best thrills you’ll ever get.
Now it’s time to say no to Netflix and chill. You just got a single package of time to explore each and everything in your life. So just pack your bag and go. Also, remember to leave some space in your bag to collect memories instead of things. Heli-skiing is one of those thrilling activities that will certainly give you another reason to live your life to the fullest. Heli-skiing is a downhill snowboarding which is accessed by a helicopter. In India, Manali in Himachal Pradesh and Gulmarg in Jammu and Kashmir offer some of the best experience of Heli-skiing.
