Adventure culminates in Badami; chockfull of bouldering routes through almond-coloured hills. The paths are many but the goal is inevitable. The sky above and the rugged rock face beneath your feet, sweaty palms and tough belays that save you from slipping – the ride to the top is just as ‘breath-taking’ as the actual view. The skies turn golden and pink before the evening sun dips beneath the homes in the distance. What can we say? This is worth it.
