It is not quite easy to define rock climbing, but it is not difficult too. Anyone who claims to be a rock climber has his own version of the game. Rock climbing is often seen as the basic stage for mountain climbing. It can also be treated as an independent sport, since it is basically climbing a rock face, using only hands and feet with a safety rope.
The surrounding hillsides of Kangra district offer numerous rock faces for exciting rock climbing and rappelling. Rocks with steep inclines exist both north and south of the town, and are easily accessible.
