While we were in interlaken, my friend decided let’s go Canyoning, without any thoughts all of us said a big Yes. Booked and Paid for our slot.
Jumping in the canyons- OMG I will never ever forget this day in my life. You want to know Why? It is because until that day I dint know I am scared of water and a decision was taken that next time I do water sports it will be after I learn to swim 🙂
What is Canyoning ?- The sport of jumping into a fast-flowing mountain stream and allowing oneself to be carried downstream at high speed. It includes various types of jumps- jumps from small rocks, jumps using a rope, sliding down to a water stream and loads of it.
It is not necessary to know swimming for this sport because you are safe in life jacket, but it’s good to have those skills as when you are thrown into the water or forced down with a stream, it makes it easy for you to handle yourself and don’t lose balance.

Few pictures of that day to share the thrill with you guys:
We enjoyed, We truly enjoyed- mixture of fear, thrill and Adrenaline rush in the body. All of us were non-swimmers but it was a lifetime experience for all. And now I know basic swimming, so I am definitely going back for this. This time with Ash 🙂
Note: Any sports in Interlaken is very expensive, so you really need to save your pocket-money to do all that adventures. Stay on an economical budget trip, try hostels, cook food and you will not repent spending on those activities. It will be cherished and a tale to tell in future. I still laugh looking at my pictures as I did for the first time.
