Some of you may already know that Jaipur in India is known as the Pink City. But do you know why? Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan and under the rule of Sawai Ram Singh, the area was painted pink to represent hospitality. To this day, pink is still very prominent throughout the city. There are numerous landmarks such as the Hawa Mahal and Jal Mahal, which are breathtaking and bustling throughout the day. In addition, the Amer Fort offers stunning architecture, and the Jantar Mantar, a huge equinoctial sundial, are worth visiting, too. There are many unique stories that make Jaipur a special place for the thousands of tourists that visit each year. But, there is a newer reason why Jaipur is becoming more popular. Adventure activities. The landscapes, sights, and hospitality of the area make this a prime location to enjoy off-road racing, camel rides, hot air balloons, and so much more. So, if you want a once in a lifetime vacation with a little more thrill, read our list of the best adventure sports in Jaipur, India, today. A whole new world awaits…

1. Paragliding

Paragliding is quickly becoming one of the most popular adventure sports across India. We think that one of the main reasons for this is the absolutely breathtaking views that you can enjoy from the sky. It will be like no other experience that you have ever had in your life. You can receive training sessions before you take to the sky, or be attached to an expert. Either way, your dream of seeing this fascinating country can come true in Jaipur. The time for this activity is between one and two hours.

2. Paintball

This time, you will have your feet firmly on the ground, but you will need to keep your wits about you. In teams, you’ll be given all the safety gear and a set number of colored pellets. Don your wear, head out into the ‘arena’, and prepare for battle. Can you come out unscathed or will you be hit by the enemy with pellets? This fun-filled experience is great for families and friends alike. Of course, if you’re not very good at aiming, you may need to purchase additional pellets. Time to relieve some of that work stress. Two of the most popular spots in the city where you can play paintball are WarZone Paintball at Snow Planet, and Mastiii Zone Flavors GT Central.

Okay, so let’s begin with a quick introduction for those of you who have never heard of zorbing. There are now numerous styles but in Jaipur, the most popular is body zorbing, which entails a person wearing a huge inflatable ball around their midriff and running around. Now, this might not sound like an adventure sport, but throw in a few other people and you soon have some kind of running, rolling, bouncing sumo-match happening before your eyes. We love that because of the zorb ball protection, this activity can be enjoyed by lots of different ages. Let’s just hope that if you fall down, you can get back up again.

Yes, they spit so watch out for that, but we still think that a camel ride is an excellent way to explore Camel rides are most popular in the area around the stunning Jal Mahal (water palace). Most camel rides can be anywhere, from one hour to six hours, depending on what you want from the activity. Being atop a camel and enjoying some of the most beautiful landmarks is an adventurous way to enjoy Jaipur.
