I recently did the same trip and i am more than happy to share my experience with Thrillophilia. Everything was managed professionally Be it the trekking part, the paragliding, the Transfers. Now comes the most exciting part of this trip, TREASURE HUNT- It was one of the best group activities i've ever done. I was super Excited for this one and it was worth it. P.S. I won a Selfie Stick and a Power Bank. ;) The location of the campsite was really good, i woke up, unzipped my tent and saw the sun rising from behind the mountain which was right in front of my eyes and I captured that moment in my heart for lifetime.
