Difficulty Level: Beginner
BASCOOL (Bangalore Adventure School) is the only institute in India that provides structured training for Canyoneering / Canyoning

What is Canyoning / Canyoneering

Canyoning and Canyoneering are terms used to describe an adventure sport that combines hiking, wading, swimming, jumping, sliding, boulder-hopping, scrambling, rock-climbing, sometimes pack-rafting and always rappelling often over waterfalls.

So, hiking to the top of a mountain, getting down into a canyon and following the watercourse is called canyoneering. If some spots in the canyons are waterfalls, then in order to continue further down, we will need ropes and other types of equipment along with the required knowledge and practice to use them. Such a controlled descent of a rock face using a rope is called Rappelling (in Europe it is called Abseiling).

Canyoning is an emerging adventure sport in India and has grown significantly in popularity over the past few years.  This sport has unique risks and requires a very specific set of technical skills to enjoy it safely.  Rock-climbing, caving, mountaineering, and swift-water training teach related skills for your toolbox, but Canyoning has become highly specialized, and much of the gear and many of the techniques of Canyoning are distinctly different from those of the other sports
