The word comes from the French "Parcours", which literally means, the way through, or the path. "Parkour" had its origins in a training program for French Special Forces known as "Parcours du combattant", or "The Path of the Warrior".

Developed from military obstacle course training, parkour is running, swinging, jumping, and climbing from point A to point B in the quickest way possible. It's also a viable way to incorporate fitness into your life since you get to develop coordination, balance, and total-body strength, all the while having fun and learning useful movements.

Sixty kilometers from Bengaluru, Antargange in Kolar is a hill range with huge volcanic rocks and boulders scattered all over. Thorny shrubs cover the hill, while there is dense plantation forest at the base. The forty-five minutes hill climbing will keep you panting for breath and opens up for an extensive and beautiful green plateau on the top filled with boulders all around. Big and small boulders have heaped to form a cave like formations offering an exhilarating network of cave exploration activity which makes a perfect set up for Parkour stunts. Register for this event if you are curious about exploring these volcanic rocks through fastest ways the human body can offer.!!

Distance: From Bangalore: 60 km

Difficulty level: Moderate combination of plain walk + climbing.
