    We relate adventure sports to itsy-bitsy activities like diving, hiking, and rafting that children and their families can easily engage in. But there are some adventure sports that are meant only for the most daring of individuals. Even though there is extreme level of danger involved in these activities that brings the person close to death, these sports truly live up to the meaning of ‘adventure’! And mind you, they’re not for the faint hearted.

    Given below are a number of adventure sports that’ll make your heart beat faster or to have you clutching the edges of your seats in case you can’t handle them…

    1. Cliff Camping

    Highlining is much like tightrope walking, but without the ‘tight’ and taut rope, the balancing pole…..and the safety net to catch you if you fall!

    6. Cave Diving
