Those I’ve done (i.e. tried at least once) are checked out. Rest are in my immediate bucket list.

Hikes

These are only the hikes in US. My hikes in India and Europe aren’t included.

Name Location Notes
Alum Cave, Mount Leconte Tennessee, US Amazing views; easy hike; didn’t go to the top
Virginia Creeper Trail Virginia, US Bike trail; you’ll get dirty, so prepare accordingly
Midnight Hole North Carolina, US Easy trail; small cliffs to dive as well
Ozone Falls Tennessee, US One of its kind waterfall; you can go behind the waterfall
Cade’s Cove Tennessee, US Famous for wildlife; I didn’t see any 🫠
Charlie’s Bunion Tennessee, US Delivered what’s promised; loved it
Shuckstack Fire Tower North Carolina, US Uphill is tougher but the views from tower are worth it.

Adventure Sports

Sports Location Review
Skydiving The Netherlands best adrenaline rush ever
Rafting Jawahar Ghat, Jharkhand Manali, HP too hyped
Kayaking Jawahar Ghat, Jharkhand Ijams, Knoxville, TN relaxing if water is calm; else tiring but fun
Para-sailing Jawahar Ghat, Jharkhand fun; kind of like roller coaster
Para-gliding Manali, HP runway to start and landing are best parts
Skiing Latvia easy to learn; difficult to master
Surfing Gokarna, Karnataka nothing like it; waves hit you hard
Scuba-diving Fort Dickerson Quarry, Knoxville not great unless you have clear water
Mountain Biking Baker Creek Trail, Knoxville amazing trails (easy, medium and hard); artificial ramps for skating and biking are great too

Bucket List
