In the heart of India, nearly 200 kms east of Bhopal lies Dhana, a faintly populated town in Sagar district. Home to an air strip that frequently hosts skydiving camps for adventure enthusiasts. The 4000 ft. jump might not give you much freefall time, but the experience of gazing over the vast emptiness of the landscape is worth the few minutes of unaided flight. India’s first skydiving camp conducted by Thrillsextreme was hosted in Dhana. Chimes Aviation Academy is also offering tandem jumps and static jumps at Dhana this year.
Adventure is a state of mind and nothing describes adventure better than Skydiving the mother of all adventure activities known to human. It’s an incredible and must have experience one must avail in his/her lifetime. Standing in the doorway of the plane one still feel grounded. The equipment weighs heavily on your back, the floor presses against your feet, and the straps pull on your legs and shoulders. Longing for the freedom of flight, you then leap to feel the bliss. Ten seconds after leaving the plane the wind supports you as the gravity pulls you to mother earth, fighting against gravity, holding you at a constant speed. Touching nothing but air you feel the exhilarating rush of adrenaline as you soar through the sky. Only Skydivers know why birds sing.

You are in control; with the slightest movements of your body; you and the invisible element seem perfectly in tune yet the thrill of danger sharpens your focus, slows time, and heightens your senses, Adrenalin rush. Your every nerve end tingles with excitement. That smooth collage of colour miles below may be where you live but here is where you are most alive! For seconds of eternity you are completely free of all worldly concerns; it is just you and the sky.
