Summer is at its peak, bringing mangoes and of course, the much-awaited period of vacation for students along with it.We all want more from life than just the routine of hanging out or seeing new places during summertime, and this is the best time to do that. The thrill of extreme sports that are offered at many places that are now enticing the crowds. One and all are willing to try an exciting thrilling adventure sport. I remember one time at our family vacation in Kulu, where my dad was ready before all of us to give white water rafting a try. My own last experience was at Rio in Brazil, where we were taken up the mountain in a car before having gear and a pilot strapped on my back and jumping off a cliff. Before I even realized it, we were paragliding smoothly with a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean, the beautiful beach and the picturesque Sugar Loaf Mountain. It was one of the best 5 minutes of my life where I was flying and taking all of nature in. Now, our own country also has a wide number of exciting sports available for your adrenaline junkies. So check out the cover story, Sports That Thrill and dare to test your limits.
