    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.

    We enjoyed a 3-day fun filled learning period with the introductory paragliding course in Kamshet. A team of professional pilots were present to train us. This made our skyward quest and experience easy and more rewarding. This course is done by certified professionals. So I felt safe. On this course, as I had no prior experience I was sceptical. The pilots assured me that as this is an intro course, no experience is needed to realize the exhilaration of free flight. To be honest, the learning was moments of fun, challenges, and learning as such was less. Practical sessions including training simulator was also provided that made it easier on air.

    I can't believe i did this. Paragliding has always been on my bucket list but I was slightly frightened, the instructors took away all my fear they were so encouraging and I am so glad I took part in this course. They gave me a video of my flight as well!! An awesome experience to cherish for a long time!!

    It was fun learning the basics of paragliding. Trainers were extremely professional and we were given the required attention and tips about flying. After completing the courses, we got to experience the real charm of Kamshet paragliding and must admit that it was one of the best and adventurous experience I had so far! If you are also planning for it, check out the best time for paragliding in Kamshet and most of the fun depends on the wind.

    While paragliding in Kamshet, I was totally astonished on its magical beauty. Floating steadily high above the ground, feeling the gentle breezes, was a whole new experience for me and I'm really grateful to all the trainers and organizers for putting in all their efforts in making paragliding in Kamshet so wonderful for me!
