You can also plan camping with your friends, it is something that we all want to do. Bonfire, barbecue, games, and star gazing are some of the highlights of the night camping and doing all this with your friends, makes it more special and memorable.

 Thanks to the amazing scenic valleys, valley crossing is one of the most breathtaking things to do in Kanatal. One has to cross an 80 ft deep valley by using ropes, trust me on this, it can really give you a heart attack. 

If you want to try something different, you can do bridge crossing, believe me, it’s not at all easy as it seems. Your back is going to attach with the harness which to further going to link with the rope, it’s not a big deal unless someone else is also crossing the bridge ahead of you which may lead to dis-balancing. 

 Last, but not least, is rock climbing and rappelling. The natural hilly cliff and good rocky outcrops of the Kanatal are perfect for the rock climbing and rappelling.  

If you are planning for an adventure-filled trip with your friends or want to have a corporate outing, then trying out these activities at Kanatal will be a great stress buster.
