Outdoor & Adventure Sport.
You don't need to travel to a distant island to scuba dive or snorkel and you don't need to travel the country to learn rock climbing and rappelling. It's all happening right here in Pondicherry ... in Auroville ... round the corner from Inn Pondiville!
Dive in and have fun ... enrol for a SCUBA diving course conducted by certified PADI instructors.
Guests can choose between the in-house one day Basic Course, the more intense 2 day course which includes 2 open water dives after which the student is qualified to dive to a depth of 12 metres anywhere in the world provided they're accompanied by an Instructor or Certified Assistant.
The 4 day Course includes 5 enclosed pool sessions, theory sessions and finally 4 open water dives. This is the most common route into scuba diving and permits the student to dive to a depth of 18 metres anywhere in the world!
For the rock climbing and Rappelling enthusiasts, professionals will teach you the ropes and guide you through the climbing manoeuvres over 2 sessions spread over 2 days.
Both, the scuba diving and rock climbing courses, need a minimum of 4 participants.
Take a Walk
Abri Forest has some interesting jungle trails and natural ravines for guests who would like to explore the neighbourhood on foot. While no life-threatening wild-life inhabits this forest, it is advisable to restrict entry and exit to 5 am – 7 pm respectively.
For guests who would like a more detailed tour of the Green Belt and hear about its evolution, a Guide can be arranged.
Around Pondicherry ....
The Kalaivalli grasslands, about 18 kms away, provide a rich and rewarding experience for birders.
The Shrine of Infant Jesus in Velankanni, (4 hour drive) and the Mylam temple (half-hour drive), attract thousands of pilgrims from all over the world and must feature on the must-see list of nearby attractions for anyone who can find the time.
And then of course, there is the meandering East Coast with its tempting beaches. While sea-swimming is not advised, owing to a sharp continental shelf and strong currents, there are some great hang-outs and surfing spots dotted along the coast line.
