In Kamshet, Para-gliding offers you an opportunity to fly in the sky just like a bird and glide in the cool winds and ample sunlight as you look down on the beautiful hills and fields. A paraglider is a foot-launched, ram-air, airfoil canopy, flown and landed with the energy of the wind, gravity, and the pilot’s muscle power.
The location is set in a very picturesque place offering a unique beauty anywhere that you look.
Para-gliding in Kamshet is usually in a heavy demand and you can experience this adventure sport in two ways, one, where you fly in tandem with the pilot who expertly maneuvers the parachute canopy in a suitable direction according to the wind flow.
The second method is undergoing training in Kamshet for 2-3 weekends and then paragliding by yourself.
The flying season starts from November to June every year. Don’t waste any time and book seats immediately, as this place is within hand’s reach from Mumbai (110 kms), and you will be back in city by nightfall.
Similar to Para-sailing, Paramotoring is also an easy, relatively safe and most accessible form of powered aviation.
A Paramotor consists of a backpack-style ultra-light aircraft-engine called a Paramotor; attached to the standard Paraglider wing. This engine helps with the thrust required to take off and fly off the ground.
In India, there are only a few places offering para-motoring and one such destination is Sohna, Gurgaon where the individuals can enjoy the excitement of an air safari under expert supervision. The participants get to see an amazing aerial view of the Gurgaon city from a high-altitude.
The organisers have designed this activity very carefully giving first priority to the participants’ safety, therefore making it into one of memorable experiences.
