NB Valley Crossing@SGNP, Borivali on 16Nov 08
The daily rat race of life leaves a typical Mumbaikar with very little time to explore nature and take part in any adventure activity.
With the intention of bringing people closer to nature, and at the same time, providing an Adrenalin Rush via an adventure event; we at Nisarga Bhraman, have decided to organize a ‘Valley Crossing’ event at Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Borivali on Sunday, 16th November 2008.

Here is some Info about Valley Crossing:

Type: Adventure Event
Distance of Crossing: 150 feet

Valley Crossing: Ever dreamed of crossing a valley without getting through the hassles of trekking up and down the slopes?

Valley Crossing allows you to do just that, while experiencing the feeling of being suspended on a rope.

The event entails having a rope on tension, secured at both ends of the valley. Participants would be hooked onto this rope along with the equipments to enjoy the beauty of nature while crossing across the valley.



Batch I[Western]: Meet at 07.00hrs (Sharp) on Sunday, 16th Nov 08 at Sanjay Gandhi National Park(SGNP), Borivali near the Main Gate.
