The number of times we have said “let the pandemic get over, I am going to do everything I was too scared of” is beyond count. The entire concept of “live life like there is no tomorrow” or “fight your fear” has been romanticized yet hardly ever practiced. However, if you really want to do yourself a favour, post-pandemic try these adventure sports and give yourself the adrenaline rush that was missing in these two years of pandemic!
Scuba Diving, Andamans
The Andamans Scuba Diving experience is a world-class experience. The site that has scuba diving is called ‘ooh-la-la’ and is located in the Narcondam in Andamans.
