AP to organize adventure activities in Kondapalli forest
The Andhra Pradesh government is planning to organize adventure sports like trekking in the Kondapalli forest area. This was announced by the Irrigation Minister Devineni Umamaheswara Rao while addressing a gathering in connection with ‘Women Confidence Challenge’ organised by the Vijayawada chapter of Youth Hostels Association of India (YHAI) on the hill opposite Siddhartha Arts College.
Over 40 girls and women, aged between 4 and 60 years, participated in rappelling and rock-climbing activities carried out under the expert guidance of the members of Adventure Club of Andhra Pradesh.
“It was heartening to see the women showcasing exceptional skills in adventure sports,” the minister said. District Collector B Lakshmikantham, who flagged off the event, said activities like trekking and rappelling in mountains far away from the madding city crowd could be a great source of rejuvenating.
