The presence of Himalayas is the greatest asset that made J&K, arguably the best destination for adventure sport in India. The one thing one might feel is the absence of long coastlines and sea, which had been overshadowed by the natural, pristine Dal Lake giving more adventure sports options besides adding the glow to the panoramic vista of this sceneric splendor. The fast flowing rivers gives an amazing opportunity for water sports like white water rafting, fishing, cruising, and staying in houseboats. Being situated at high altitudes, amidst the snow capped mountains, the state has got the privilege of both land adventure like trekking, mountaineering, skiing and facilities of aero-sports like Para gliding and hot air ballooning. The place is perfect for tyro as well as veteran adventurers as there are spots of minimal difficulties for learners and areas that are hard nut to crack even for the professionals. Adventure in J&K is an experience that nothing else can compare up to. So don't let this opportunity go by and grab it with both hands.


Trekking

A range of soft trekking options is available in the Jammu area. Summer is the season when all the routes are open, but some trekking routes are open in winter as well. There are excellent camping sites in the region. The Tourism Department has shops in Jammu and Kud that hire local and imported trekking equipments on rent. The equipment available includes 4-man tents, 2-man tents, sleeping bags, carry mat, jackets, wind sheaters, rucksack and trekking boots.

Skiing

Ski courses are conducted at Patnitop during the winter months every year. The gently graded ski slopes of Patnitop are suitable enough for beginners. Madha Top, about 5 to 6 kms from Patnitop on the Sanasar Road, has good possibilities for all levels of skiing. After the newly planned ski lift becomes operational, Madha Top will offer skiing options for both trained skiers as well as beginners. For beginners and for people who want to brush up on their skills, the Tourism Department provides ski instructors. For skiing enthusiasts, there are several private hotels in Patnitop and Kud

Aero-Sports

Paragliding has been recently introduced in Sanasar. Equipments can be hired from the tourist office in Jammu city. May to June and September to October are suitable months for paragliding in Sanasar. The resort is 19 kms from Patnitop and a road connects the two. Sanasar can be reached by bus or taxi from Jammu, via Kud and Patnitop

Golf

Kashmir offers a unique opportunity to play golf all through the summer from April to November – in invigorating surroundings. In the verdant golf courses at Srinagar and Gulmarg, you will be able to play for longer hours than you can in the plains because of the lower temperatures – Srinagar’s highest temperature seldom goes above 35 degree Celsius. If you plan to play golf regularly during the entire duration of your stay in Kashmir, a temporary membership can be availed, which will enable you to use the course for as long as you are here. Naturally the membership entitles you to use the clubhouse restaurant facilities. You can hire a golf set and balls for the day from the pro-shops at Gulmarg. Should you want to brush up your play, or simply to learn golf for the first time, there are competent trainers at both clubs. The layout of both the courses, too, will delight the golfers

Purmandal Mela (February-March)

On Shivratri, the Jammu town wears a festive look as people celebrate the marriage of Lord Shiva to Goddess Parvati. This festival is celebrated for three days in Purmandal which is about 39 kms from Jammu city and known as Purmandal Mela. The people of Jammu also come out in their colourful best to celebrate Shivratri at Peer Khoh, the Ranbireshwar Temple and the Panjbhaktar Temple. In fact, if one visits Jammu during Shivratri, one finds a celebration going on almost everywhere.

Jhiri Mela (Oct-Nov.)

Jhiri Mela is an annual fair which is held in Jhiri in the name of Baba Jitu, a simple and honest farmer who preferred to kill himself rather than submit to the unjust demands of the local landlord to part with his crop. He killed himself in the village of Jhiri, 14 kms from Jammu. A legend has grown around the Baba and his followers congregate at Jhiri on the appointed day from every corner of North India as they revere him for his compassion, courage and honest

Navratra Festival (September-October)

Though the yatra to the shrine of Mata Vaishno Devi is a round-the-year event, the one undertaken during the Navratras is considered the most auspicious. This festival is celebrated in the month of September-October. In order to showcase and highlight the culture, heritage and traditions of the area during this period, the State Tourism Department has instituted the Navratra Festival as an annual event to be held during September-October for all the nine auspicious days of Navratras. A large number of pilgrims pay their obeisance to the deity during the Navratra festival. This festival showcases the culture and traditions of the region among the millions of pilgrims who visit the Vaishnodeviji Shrine during this festival.
