Tourists can enjoy water sports off the coasts of Goa, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and the tropical islands of Lakshadweep and Andaman and Nicobar. All these locations offer venues for scuba diving, snorkelling and many other water sports, on adventure travel in India.

Winter sports such as skiing, skating, tobogganing and snow boarding can be enjoyed at venues such as Pathnitop and Gulmarg in Jammu and Kashmir and Auli in Himachal Pradesh. The ski slopes are as good as many international slopes but are lesser known and are therefore not crowded. You can enjoy a relaxed winter sports experience on adventure tours of India.
