Rope Challenge Course in Coorg

On 27-Feb-2010 we visited Jungle Gym @ Now or Never Land - a place of enthusiastic people who want to get away from comfortable city life, enjoy and test themselves into different outdoor activities.

Situated in one of the sleepy coffee estates of Virajpet taluk of Coorg, is the gym conceptualized and developed by Mars Adventures, Bangalore. Don't get afraid with name gym; the "jungle gym" is a series of physical activities designed to boost self confidence and morale coupled with brought alive by marvelous engineering effort. It is also widely known as Rope Challenge Course.

Have you ever been thrilled about commando exercises? Imagined walking literally on a tightrope? Or daring to challenge yourself to overcome fear of heights? 'Jungle gym' is exactly the place you would die to visit.

The reception is curved out of fallen trees.


The look and feel has been kept adapt with the surrounding nature.


There is something special about the way standing platforms are constructed - are you smart enough to notice bullock cart wheel?


Wall of rope net, it takes persistence to cross this.


This wooden bridge weights more than a ton; how did it rise up there without a crane? Neeraj took up Rohan's challenge and crossed it in less than 30 seconds, how? Looking for answers?

Every ride is smooth in the end if we stay commited, the visit to jungle gum turns out to be a more spiritual experience with nature being our guru exposing our own strengths and weaknesses; thanks to Mars Adventures for setting it up amidst stunning beauty without harming nature.
