A rope course is an outdoor activity where you have to overcome different obstacles. These obstacles are usually mounted on a series of ropes, cables, and other elements that are suspended above the ground.

Completing a rope course requires team spirit. Everyone must work together and use each person's strengths. There are also rules that everyone must follow.

As Lakshmi Selvakumaran, Head of Experience at Indiahikes, said, "By realising that their success depends upon everyone else’s contributions towards achieving a common objective, trekkers can make sense out of an experience which goes beyond just physical fitness. It takes us back home with valuable lessons".

On a trek, the rope course plays a crucial role in bringing the team together. Have you tried it yet?
