A 705-metre long treetop walkway is set to become the star of Mumbai’s Malabar Hills by the end of 2021. Surrounded by tree canopies and birdsong, the elevated forest trail will allow visitors to soak in the local ecosystem and enjoy uninterrupted views of the Arabian Sea. 

Blurbs with details of nearby flora and fauna will add to the experience, and the project will apparently be built without felling a single tree. Sounds like a green dream!

Haryana’s Morni Hills is transforming into an adventure sports haven for visitors from Delhi and Chandigarh. Parasailing, paramotor gliding and a few other thrilling activities have been started in the area. 

A water jet scooter, on which the CM himself took a ride, has also been introduced on the scenic Tikkar Taal lake. Haryana Tourism will be adding more air, land and water sports facilities in the Hills, thus removing the need for tourists to travel to places like Manali or Bir Billing for a shot of adventure. Rock climbing, zip lining, bungee jumping, hot air balloons, kayaking—it’s all in the works! 

We advise all travellers to check their destination’s COVID-19 guidelines before making any bookings. Have a safe journey!
