Default Mumbai : Paragliding, rock climbing, kayak surfing, mountain biking, archery & more!

What do your weekends look like? The staple sleep, TV, movie, eating out & partying till late on saturday?

Here's a refreshingly different outfit offering a wide range of fun stuff in Mumbai. Bluebulb.in also has a few activities in Kolad & Kashid, while expansion in Pune and Goa are in the pipeline. Ain't no automotive press release, yet I know a lot of our Mumbai members would be interested in such lifestyle activities. Wish them luck, and may their tribe increase. We could really do with such recreational weekends in India.

I'll be hiring their services soon with a couple of friends, and will update this thread with a list of pros & cons.

Information as received from Bluebulb:

1 Day Paragliding
Tandem Paragliding
Tandem Paramotoring
Indoor Rock Climbing
Downhill Mountain Biking
Kayak Surfing
Sailing Experience
Zumba Fitness
Power Trampoline Workout
Salsa/Jive/Tango Classes
Archery Experience
Complete Golf Experience

Full list here : Blue Bulb Activity List.pdf

Where exactly in Mumbai. Is it near Kashid beach? The list has quite a number of adventure sports. The pictures look nice too. I know of one more place in Lonavala which offers a number of adventure sports. I have never been there but heard a lot about it. The place is called Della Adventures. Some of the activities are: :: Della Adventure ::

GTO, where in Mumbai is this place?
Also, any idea as to when they plan to set shop in Pune?

There are quite a few Adventure/Leisure activity places coming up around Mumbai -Pune. Thats a relief from the routine clubbing, dining, movie weekends most of us spend. One such place has opened up near Pune as well. Its called Adventure Plus. Here is the link ::Adventure Plus Resort Pune Bhor Near Mahabaleshwar India

Though slightly OT, there's another such thing where one can go camping and then later staying in a tent at night. Along with the tent, they also provide BBQ at night. Check their website for more details: Big Red Tent: Camping made easy!

DealsnYou.com also comes up with real cool offers. Have bought their offer for half the price for a total package for Kundalika rafting, MTBing, River crossing etc. Yet to use the offer though.

Naturetrails.in is a decent site too.
Nirvana Adventures for Paragliding camps, Kamshet.
