Rappelling, abseiling, canyoning – whatever you call it, is a technique of descent from vertical faces with the aid of ropes and specialized rappelling equipment. It is the quickest and easiest way to get a taste of mountaineering. Perfect as an introductory adventure, Rappelling also has a psychological application in boosting confidence and courage.

Bhongir:

Bhongir, Bhongiri or Bhuvanagiri is a town.It is 48 km from Hyderabad. Bhongir is famous for its fort, which became prominent during the rule of the Kakatiyas.




Rappelling facilitates an attitude of overcoming challenges

The session begins with an introduction of the activity with information about climbing and rappelling equipment like Carabiners, descenders, harnesses and rappelling ropes. There is a demonstration of rappelling techniques and anchoring and safety system followed by guided attempts by participants.

Rappelling is one of the most dangerous aspects of climbing. More accidents occur with rappelling than any other climbing activity - Please do not try this yourself without a safety belay in place and without direct supervision of a skilled and experienced instructor.
