Maharashtra is a convergence of varying geographical landforms and sea, caves and forts scattered here and there, making paragliding in Maharashtra a coveted attraction for the travellers. As every adventure enthusiast knows, paragliding is a type of flying sport that has gained huge popularity in recent years.

This is the very reason why, Maharashtra is witnessing a surge in the number of visitors, from all quarters, as everyone wants to explore the fascination of flying in the sky, at least once in their lifetime.

Maharashtra paragliding is a lifetime experience as it is an amazing sport and one of the best ways to enjoy the thrill of life.  The rush of adrenaline is enough to foster a never experienced feeling and on a lighter note, the paraglider can even boast of his or her achievements, in front of people who have still not taken the plunge.

Maharashtra is the only state in central India, which has well-facilitated training centres for paragliding and sites, where this activity can be carried out. Kamshet and Panchgani are two of the best places in Maharashtra, where one can indulge in some of the best paragliding activities of India.

Weather plays a huge role in paragliding and the glider should be absolutely sure of the weather conditions, before starting the flight. Winds blowing with average speeds of about 20km/hr are perfect for both smooth and dynamic flying. These two places offer the perfect and most reliable weather conditions for getting completely trained and flying high in the open sky.

As already mentioned, paragliding in Maharashtra can be best enjoyed in Kamshet and Panchgani. Kamshet is a small town in Pune district, easily reachable from both Mumbai and Pune. Originally known as Karmakshetra, it is also very near to the twin hill stations of Khandala and Lonavala.

As Kamshet is blessed with both beautiful weather conditions and topography, it has become a popular destination for paragliding in the state. Due to the presence of Sahyadri ranges in this region, the glider can take the advantages of the low hills and proper landing space, which are the perfect conditions for him to take off.

The months between October and February and the period between March and June provide ideal weather conditions with the easterlies and the westerlies blowing in that period, respectively. Kamshet is rightfully known as the home for paragliding, as it offers world-class paragliding facilities throughout the year.

It is also a scenic location, offering a perfect elevation for the sport, besides the presence of serene hills and lakes. Thus, many tourists flock here for paragliding, especially during the months of summer.

Other than the above-mentioned places, Talegaon Dabhade, Brahmanwadi, Virar, Nashik and Saputara are some other places in Maharashtra, which are ideal for one of the most nerve-wracking adventure sports, paragliding.

Paragliding is one such experience, where one can feel as free as a bird and witness the beauty of nature underneath. The panoramic views of the lakes, green hills, dense forests and settlements reducing in size, are some of the rarest sights, worth viewing.

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.
