Torna Waterfall Rappelling


After Aashdhi Ekadashi on beautiful Sunday (17th July 2016) morning with Apex Adventures, I went to the waterfall rappelling event near Torna Fort Base Village Velhe. This waterfall rappelling point is few minutes away from village. After picking up all participants, we left the Pune at 7:00 AM & reached there at 10:00 AM & the instructor Akshay Gokhle came there to guide us all. All together there were 70 members, 30 from our group 30 from other group & 10 instructors.

TOrna Waterfall Rappelling Point

It was the wonderful day out there greenery all over the place, beautiful waterfalls & like icing on the cake slightly raining was there. To reach that point of waterfall rappelling, we crossed two small water flows & one beautiful waterfall on that flow. We enjoyed there a lot while coming back.










At rappelling point Akshay given us all the instructions & said to come one by one for amazing adventure. There was two ropes to get down through waterfall & both were properly fixed & two instructors at the top two at down to help us all for rappel down & two instructors were helping us to fix the harness, helmet & gloves for our safety while rappelling down. Don’t go at the edges of the waterfall it is very slippery so be careful.





Beauty of plateau was enhanced because of mysteriously attractive white flowers. Later I was searching for proper place to click snaps of all participants while doing rappelling. While searching for those places we found one small engaging waterfall. There we had few clicks & decided three places to click the snaps one at the top second at the mid way of plateau & last one at the down.


Then one by one all the participants started one of the thrilling event of their life waterfall rappelling. The faces of the guys at the start was very nervous, full of tension was looking on there faces, they were asking so many queries to the instructors available there like what is the safety level? how to get down step by step? & so many they were asking questions like child. Those who were in between the waterfall while getting down & we all were encouraging them to go ahead. At the end gorgeous smile on their faces was showing their joy, happiness for some kind of achievements in life. Some one was telling me can we do it twice please please, some one was asking me for more such kind of adventures. I can see the tremendous joy and freedom in their eyes after spending an enthusiastic day, it fueled all of us with happiness, courage & fight our daily small small challenges with smile on face.
