I was very scared to take this initially, but at first, we started training on flat ground. After this we met our course mates, instructors. The instructors taught us about equipments and we got familiar with the equipment, glider controls under their supervision. I was happy that I got personal attention to help. The training was complimented with Ground School classes to understand relevant concepts. This was boring but useful. Also participating in a Training Simulator session was done to ease oneself to acquire flying skills. In short, it was an amazing experience that I recommend all to take. I graduated level 1 and I will join level 2 next week.

For our first year anniversary, we embarked on an exciting experience of paragliding in Kamshet. We had a great time with an amazing package that my hubby got as a gift for me. There were set of certified pilots and flying enthusiasts, who made us feel at ease. My hubby is a pilot, so this was easy for him. I am a person who is generally afraid about heights. Although, Kamshet is a beautiful destination which is located at about 110km from Mumbai and 45km from Pune , thus we took a single car ride from our house in Pune, I felt that flying is not my thing initially. A daylong course took us through paragliding of 3 different types namely; Classic Tandem, Instructional Tandem, and Acro Tandem. Well, I do not remember the names exactly though. A two seater plane took us high up in the air from where one can take paragliding flight with a certified instructor. As my hubby had a certification, they allowed us to take it together. It was amazing. I shall cherish it forever and ever.

This was an amazing experience! Along with paragliding that can make you feel like a bird conquering the skies, there is an added bonus in the form of a mini trek to reach the top of the cliff, the starting point of the activity! The guide, mr Ravi, in our case is super experienced and helpful, which makes it an overall enjoyable experience! If you are anywhere near pune-lonavala, do not miss this one!
