    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.

    Fantastic experience. Team gave top priority to safety and thoroughly professional. In fact, we thought that we will not be able to fly due to heavy winds. Fortunately, winds subsided and pilots were very systematic in choosing customers based on their strict flying parameters. Their process was very assuring to us, especially my wife was very afraid but a minute into flying she was normal. Until she checked the video duration, she was thinking that she flied only few mins (she did for almost 9 mins which is very good). Special thanks to Vikas and Nitin for the flying, maneuvers and videos. To flying prospects: Go there with expectations (wait till end of the day, slim chances of not able to fly etc and respect their judgement in selecting flyers) One request: If they can provide SD cards for some cost, it would be helpful for people like us who came without SD cards. Looks like they have but had an issue with the cards and hence not available temporarily. Hope it is resolved soon.

    For our first year anniversary, we embarked on an exciting experience of paragliding in Kamshet. We had a great time with an amazing package that my hubby got as a gift for me. There were set of certified pilots and flying enthusiasts, who made us feel at ease. My hubby is a pilot, so this was easy for him. I am a person who is generally afraid about heights. Although, Kamshet is a beautiful destination which is located at about 110km from Mumbai and 45km from Pune , thus we took a single car ride from our house in Pune, I felt that flying is not my thing initially. A daylong course took us through paragliding of 3 different types namely; Classic Tandem, Instructional Tandem, and Acro Tandem. Well, I do not remember the names exactly though. A two seater plane took us high up in the air from where one can take paragliding flight with a certified instructor. As my hubby had a certification, they allowed us to take it together. It was amazing. I shall cherish it forever and ever.

    I loved it. The pilot Ganesh, was very professional, knowledgable (aka, really knows his stuff), calm, reassuring, organized, and most of all its a total blast and a fun adventure! Temple Pilots also has great customer service! If you have any questions or concerns, they will promptly respond and make it right (Thank you Sachin!) A ‘must do’ if staying in the area Pune or Mumbai area! Thank You!

    Those few minutes in the sky and I was able to feel the adrenaline rush within me along with enjoying the aerial views of Kamshet. The dive was the best part of the entire flight. The way you start descending and the opening of the parachute, times spent high above the ground and finally the landing part, they all were so wow man. Thanks to the pilot, the other crew members for such an amazing flight.
