It was the best thing I did in Shimla. I always wanted to do Paragliding and cross it off from my bucket list but I never got the chance. Before my trip to Shimla, I was looking for activities and came into contact with Rajeev (Thrillophilia) and he suggested that I should try this here. I was thrilled and booked it immediately. Thanks for the advice.
