I had always wanted to attempt ziplining but kept postponing it. Also known as fox flying, it is a simple sport where one is safely harnessed to a thick metallic wire and released only to be stopped in the middle of the wire. After an easy drop of the first half, the fun is in completing the next half by pulling one’s body on the rope to reach the other side.
Though the narrative makes the sport look like a cushy job, it has its own challenges. The strenuous part is pulling your body for the large part of the sport. Having put on some weight recently, I did find it a bit demanding but not impossible. My trick was to take it slowly and also soak in the views beneath and around me.
Our wire was tied across a river in the middle of the Jim Corbett National Park. There was a thin stream of water which carried in it tiny fish. The river was not voluptuous but was semi dry. That however did not take away from its beauty. Come monsoon and the same river would become unrecognizable.
As soon as we landed on the other side, we were escorted to our next adventure sport, equally exciting and another first for me. Read about it in the links below.
