Best Paragliding Tours

Every human wants sometime in his life to fly as free as a bird. While most of the people just wish for it, there are many who make it happen by indulging in a recreational adventure sport known as paragliding. The activity is carried on with the support of a paraglide which is a light weighing, easily portable, unique aircraft which soars up high in sky.

The pilot of a paraglide sits on the harness which gets suspended below as wing made of fabric. The shape of the wing is formed by the air pressure which enters through the vents. A paragliding flight can last for several hours and one can cover hundreds of kilometers in just a time frame of one to two hours.

Practiced paragliders usually fly for 3 hours and climb a great elevation.

A paraglider requires not much of equipment. The basic stuff needed to take this flight requires protective helmet, a nylon outfit which is specially designed for paragliding and sturdy laced boots.

A paragliding enthusiast can avail paragliding tours in India at many destinations. Some of the top ones being:

  • Panchgani and Sinhagad in Maharashtra
  • Chamundi Hills and Nandi Hills in Karnataka
  • Nilgiri Hills in Ooty
  • Manali and Bilaspur in Himachal Pradesh
  • Shilling in Meghalaya

Paragliding enthusiasts doing the activity for the first time should pursue it under the supervision of trained guide. If necessary, one can learn the skill for different paragliding schools based in different parts of India.

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 .

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.

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.
