5e3967e5961a3Best Places For Paragliding in India

Paragliding was never particularly common in India until recently. The adventure sport has evolved from humble beginnings to a mainstream adventure experience that everybody needs a piece of in the last ten or fifteen years. There are two compelling reasons to go paragliding. First, experience the thrill of soaring like an eagle, a brief but powerful adrenaline rush, and then brag to all your buddies. There’s no excuse you shouldn’t want to try paragliding, particularly when there are so many beautiful places to visit in India.

Nandi Hills, a peaceful hill town about 60 kilometres south of Bangalore, is a popular paragliding destination in the south. Many specialist paragliders choose Nandi Hills because of its ideal environment and plateaued terrain with hill canopies, which can be reached at a height of over 4500 feet. It has recently become a renowned paragliding destination for Bangalore and Hyderabad’s young adventurers. The hike to the take-off points is beautiful, and the perfect time to go paragliding here is all year, even during the monsoons.

The views of the meadows and alpine ranges from the summit will astound you. This is a unique paragliding adventure that only the most daring adventurers try. However, travelling over Kumaon’s wonders is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. September to May is the perfect time to visit. Bedni Bugyal, Uttarakhand’s most scenic paragliding resort, is located on the Roopkund Trek route. The trek from the hamlet of Wan to the take-off point in Bedni Bugyal is approximately 11 kilometres, making this the perfect trekking/paragliding experience.

The closest airport is in Kathgodam, which is 34 kilometres away. Many operators offer this aerial adventure sport here as well. The average height reached here is up to 1000 feet AGL (Above Ground Level, but operators will tell you it’s 6000+ feet ASL, which is meaningless since you don’t land at sea level). From top to bottom, the pleasure ride lasts 3-5 minutes. While you have the opportunity to stretch your flight time, you will just be circling.

You should even go on a cycle ride if you’re feeling adventurous.
