This VR facility, will allow the viewers to experience the thrill of our sports in as immersive a way, as technologically possible right now. This is the future of videography, and we are proud to be one of the very few globally, and the first in India, to experiment with it in the field of extreme adventure sports – to bring the complete immersive experience to our potential clients, while sitting comfortably at home or in office, before they choose to book with us-to assure them of the safety, and the scale of operations at our location in Rishikesh.”
