Rock climbing is a sport wherein the climber’s physical strength, endurance, agility, and balance along with his mental control are put to test. It can be a precarious (Or dangerous) sport unless you have the knowledge of proper climbing techniques and usage of specialized climbing equipment, which is crucial for the safe completion of various routes.

Brief Introduction of Mumbra Hills:-
Hills of Mumbra is a haven for trek lovers.
Conveniently located in the Central suburbs, situated around 40 km from Mumbai. It is close to Thane (????) and Diwa (????) and is well connected with Mumbai by roads and the local train network.
The majestic Mumbra hills commonly known as the ‘climbing nursery’ is now becoming a hot spot for trek and adventure lovers. Busy adventurous activities have started taking place on the hills, due to its easy accessibility. These adventure activities keep happening throughout the year.
There are around 15-20 kinds of boulders, each one unique in its own way to carry out activities like laddering, commando bridge, monkey climbing et al. Also there are very few chances of accidents as permanent anchors on few boulders are installed. Other adventure lovers can enjoy without fear on it but preferably with the assistance of experts.
A trekker needs to have a thorough knowledge in rappelling to undertake such an activity and this is where Giriviraj Hikers plays a vital role. Overall, this is a great place to try your hand at rock climbing, rappelling and other exciting activities.
