PARAGLIDING IN INDIA
Paragliding scene in India started 7 years ago, though it
is now just about gaining popularity. India has immense flying
possiblities with Himalayas in the North and the Sahayadri
ranges in the west coast. There have been international competitions
where distance world records were set. These sites have conditions
for both ridge, thermal soaring and ideal cross country routes,
almost all the year round except the monsoons.
Paragliding is relatively new in India and as yet there are
no such governing / regulatory bodies for the same, though
there are a few set-ups for flying / learning. We have however
explored various flying sites in the North (Himalayas) and
conducted training OP's and tandem flights. In the last one
year we have been doing the same at Golden Glades, Kamshet.
This location is developing as one of the premier designer
hill stations and the most environment friendly. Picturesque
hills, misty lakes, lush greenery, pleasant climate and easy
accessibility by road / rail.
