Nature Trails
They want to revive the simple joys of walking in the woods with families - things. Nothing grand - just simple nature walks, spotting several species of flora and fauna. The grandeur comes from the dense forests and magnificent views of the mountains and valleys. There are several walking trails of varying difficulty and duration - 1-2 hours, half day, full day, night walks, walks along the World Heritage Kalka-Shimla Train track with its tunnels, bridges.

Camping within the resort (with the comforts and the toilets of the resort) or out in the woods. Just a fun evening exercise to set up camp, cook a camp meal, and learn about jungle survival or actually camp overnight (with sleeping bags etc.), you choose and they will organize it.

Fancy finding your way around the mountains, with some clues, maps, a compass - of course with guides by your side. You will be dropped off at a starting point and given torches and compass.

Mountain Biking
Explore the tracks around Aamod on a mountain bike. Several different routes, from simple to tough, mostly flat to all the way down to the nearby river (and back up, if you want to push yourself more). Helmets, knee pads etc. You will have it all. And of course the food options.

River Rafting
Take a thrill ride down the Sutlej River at. Keep it serious, make it fun, single family, multiple families, corporate groups - it is a great day for everyone. You can choose from two options - Sunni to Tattapaani (6 km) with rapids of grade 1 & 2 or Chabba to Tattapaani (12 kms) with rapids of grade 1, 2 &3. Round it off with a Hot Spring bath or indulge in fishing, if that is your sport.

Mahasher fishing - Angling in the nearby Giri river at Gaura (1-1.5 hr drive) or net fishing at Tattapani. Advance notice required, as fishing permits need to be obtained.

Sample of Additional Group Games/Team Building Activities
Time bound activity for a group for 10 minutes per team, including briefing and set-up time. One of the team members is hung from a tall tree with the help of a rope and other equipment so that his body is horizontal, but upside-down. Other team members have to control the hangman with the help of additional ropes connected to the Hangman, which can move him around horizontally and/or change his direction/orientation.

Sinking Island
This activity requires around 10-15 minutes + briefing time. The group is divided into 3 teams each with some attributed disability - one team is blind, one deaf and one dumb. They have all been told that they are on an island which is going to drown within 10 minutes and they have to help each other and avoid drowning and escape from the sinking island, with the help of 6 golden plates which cannot drown.

Blind Man Walking
Here they divide the group into 2 person teams, with one member blindfolded and the other leading/helping the blindfolded person to walk properly through a selected jungle trail. Lots of fun as each team/personality type, have their own way of leading the other and/or following their partner, requiring a lot of trust on the partner/mentor who is helping you walk through some rough terrain.

Trust Fall
Imagine falling backward (often blindfolded) from a certain height and depending upon or trusting your other team-mates who are standing down to hold you when you fall. Leap of faith? Quite literally, as you have to place trust in your team mates to ensure your safety.

Running Marbles
Split the group into 2 or more teams where each team is provided with a glass on both sides of the marked area, with marbles in one of them and pipe pieces split into half to roll down the marbles. The objective is to transfer as many marbles as possible from one side to the other within the specified time, by making it travel across the pipes. Since the pipes are limited, you have to keep transferring the pipes downstream as the marbles travel onwards. Any marbles falling down have to be returned to the starting point - tough luck!!
