Sightseeing, tasting local cuisines and shopping are a part of vacations anywhere. There are some things special to Jammu and can be best enjoyed in Jammu only. Since this region is known for its scenic surroundings, outdoor activities will bring out the most beautiful aspect of Jammu. Adventurous people, gear up.

  • Paragliding

    Yes, you will feel like you really have wings and can touch the sky. Hop on to one of the paraglides, hang tight and join the chirping birds on their way to a tour of the splendid green conifer trees below. For this breathtaking experience, travel to Sanasar, which is approximately 120 km and takes hardly 2 hours from Jammu city. You can take a bus or hire a taxi from Jammu. May to June and September to October is the ideal time for paragliding. If you are in for more outdoor activities, avail camping facilities in the cup-shaped meadow of Sanasar.

  • Trekking

    If you are a summer person, be ready for more adventures. Jammu area has trekking routes, all of which are open in summer, though in winter there are limited options. Some travel agencies also organise trekking and camping tours. Check with your hotel about any such facility. Trekking gears are a must. You can bring your own or save up for shopping and hire from the tourism office in Jammu city. When all is packed, start trailing the mountain path!

  • Bird - Watching and Wildlife

    For this you have to travel only 6 km from Jammu city for that insightful and spectacular view of an ecosystem in its best moment. Bring your children to the Ramnagar Wildlife Sanctuary and show them a live nilgai or a barking deer instead of mere pictures on books. Bird lovers will be excited to see so many varieties of birds in a single habitat. Mynah, Blue Rock Pigeon, Peafowl - all these live in harmony in the sanctuary. A bird watcher could ask for no more ifyou are one of them and happen to visit during March to May.

Gushing wind on your hands while paragliding, the fragrance of the evergreen trees on the mountain trail, the sound of the birds flapping their wings and chirping sweetly - create a memory so vivid that will make you feel all this when you are back in your city.
