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 Fort was built on an isolated monolithic rock by the Western Chalukya ruler Tribhuvanamalla Vikramaditya VI and was thus named after him as Tribhuvanagiri.This name gradually became Bhuvanagiri and subsequently Bhongir and it has a unique egg-shaped construction with two entry points protected by huge rocks. The fort was considered practically impregnable by invading armies. It is associated with the rule of queen Rudramadevi and her grandson Prataparudra II.















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.

******Warning*******:
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. Too many people have lost their lives or have become seriously injured trying rappelling without supervision and safety in place.
