Rafting or whitewater rafting is a challenging recreational activity utilizing a raft to navigate a river or other bodies of water. This is usually done on whitewater or different degrees of rough water, in order to thrill and excite the raft passengers. The development of this activity as a leisure sport has become popular since the mid 1970s.
In this adventure sports activity, a rope is tied across a river on the two river banks. The participants cross the river one-by-one.
Each participant is harnessed and the belay / safety rope is in the hands of the instructor. The participant is attached to the primary rope with the help of a carabiner-the participant is parallel to the rope. The participant then has to use his / her hands to pull himself / herself to the other end of the river. This activity also takes care of enhancing motor-skills as well as courage.
Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. It is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. A kayak is a low-to-the-water, canoe-like boat in which the paddler sits facing forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle to pull front-to-back on one side and then the other in rotation. Most kayaks have closed decks, although sit-on-top and inflatable kayaks are growing in popularity as well.
Raft building is an excellent activity for body and mind! It traditionally involves building a raft from various objects, usually pioneering poles, barrels or tubes, planks and ropes you can test your skills and innovation in a quest to build the ultimate craft well one that stays a float anyway!

Don't worry though if your raft turns out to be a mini Titanic, safety marshals will be close by to assist you! This is also of fun for adults, children and groups alike!
The Burma Bridge structure has two parallel ropes - one above the other - strung from poles / trees, at a height of 25 feet. Participants are divided into teams. At one time, two participants will climb the structure from two opposite ends using ladders and walk across the ropes to the centre of the structure. They will walk on one rope while holding the other one at shoulder / head height for support.
The participants will be secured with harnesses and the guiding / belay ropes will be handled by instructors.
Abseiling or Rappelling is the technique of the abseil (or rappel) method of roping down or descending down a fixed rope on a rock-face or mountain side. The participants are secured safely to a harness and belay rope, which are handled by an instructor.
The participants walk down backwards parallel to the ground at a 90 degree angle to the rock-face while the rope is let out slowly from their hands. The other end of the rope is secured on the top of the rock-face with the instructor. This is an adventure sports activity that helps develop courage, motor-skills, co-ordination & balance. There are quite a few variations of Rappelling - Face Forward, Back Forward, Overhang etc.

A zip-line consists of a pulley suspended on a cable, usually made of stainless steel, mounted on a slope. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to travel from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable by holding on to, or attaching to, the freely moving pulley. Zip-lines come in many forms, most often used as a means of entertainment. They may be short and low, intended for child's play and found on some playgrounds. Longer and higher rides are often used as a means of accessing remote areas, such as a rainforest canopy. Zip line tours are becoming popular vacation activities, found at outdoor adventure camps or upscale resorts, where they may be an element on a larger challenge or ropes course.The jungles of Costa Rica, Florida, Puerto Vallarta, and Nicaragua are popular destinations for zip line enthusiasts.
