Paragliding was a an absolute delightful experience for me. it was my first time and intially it was a little scary but when you start your flight its amazing. also the pilot was really friendly and explaining me everything from important points about the place and his experience of flying. best parts was when he was doing stunts like flying 360 degree. it was a very memorable experience.

One of the best experiences of my life, hope to do it again. When we took off on the plane, the sky was cloudy but while in air the clouds dispersed and I had a breathtaking view of Ponnampet. -- My route for this trip was Bangalore-Madikeri-GoniKoppal-Ponnampet-Gonnikoppal-Mysore-Bangalore -- There is probably one hotel at Ponnampet, so do confirm reservation, else you can stay at Gonikoppal which is 6 km away. -- If you want to click photos in mid-air don't forget to carry something so that your phone does not fall, and also your photos would look like google maps satellite images :P . Full Story: I had been thinking to go on a solo trip for a while. On 14 March Friday evening, at office planning for my weekend I stumbled upon this treasure on Thrillophilia, at the very moment, I decided I need to this and get fresh look at things. I took a night bus to Madikeri (Coorg) and called Thrillophilia in the morning, the guys here helped me out to confirm with the pilot(Muthanna). I spent my entire day exploring Madikeri (Abbi falls, Raja Gate, Madikeri Fort, Mandapatti Peak ). At 6 in evening I got on a bus to Gonikoppal which is 6 km away from Ponammpet. Around 9:30, I was in Ponnampet. In morning I called Muthanna, he picked me up from the GoldenGate hotel (the only hotel in Ponnampet). After we flew, he dropped me back to my hotel :D .

It was my life long desire to experience this crazy paragliding and finally i had the fortune do this in kamshet, one of the most popular Paragliding destinations in India. This short Ariel adventure will definitely stole your hearts.

This was a really wonderful experience for all of us. it was amazing and the organizers were also really good. the team trained us well before the flight. We had one of the best times and was truly worth it. Must try for everyone.

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.

Our guide was really very experienced and knowledgeable and the pilot as well. I did thi for the first time and i felt amazing. paragliding is operated on a motored structure with a a parachute attached.....A completely out of the box experience for me.

Such an amazing experience of flying in Kamshet! Must appreciate the way it was carried out by the organisers. The guides were great and made me fear-free before the flight. And once I was in the air, there was no stopping and the views were the best I enjoyed in my life.
