You might have heard of Yelagiri as a quaint little hill station but what most travelogues fail to mention is that paragliding in Yelagiri is turning out to be quite the rage! You will find that it is a different experience altogether. Paragliding is easier and less scary than skydiving. You are tied to a harness and have to literally fly off a cliff! All the while, a parachute will be attached to you. Unlike skydiving, you will never have any kind of free fall!

A plethora of paragliding tours in Yelagiri is available. Usually, the base for all travelers to Yelagiri is Athanavur. Innumerable people flock down to this quaint hill station for the thrill of adventure. From here they have to travel to the base point of the paragliding tours. Some paragliding packages even include the day and night stay at Athanavur! Your adventure starts the minute you reach the hilltop for the flight!

In Yelagiri, paragliding packages are of two types. One is tandem, and another is hang gliding. You might debate about which one is the safest option, but let us assure you that both are equally safe because in both cases, it is required, rather it is mandatory that you be accompanied by trained and expert pilots because otherwise, an accident is a common consequence. The advantage of having these experts with you is that they will be able to guide both you and the suite according to the wind and its direction. Below we have answered a few common questions so that we can drive away all your doubts!
