Paragliding

So when was the last time, you did something for the first time?

Say, something like…ummm…flying? 😉

There are quite a few hot spots for para gliding in India.

1. The Shayadri Range between Mumbai and Pune

2. The Pir Panjal range behind Dharamshalla, in Billing

3. Solang Valley in Manali

4. Darjeeling

While, the first one around the Shayadri range, in the state of Maharashtra, the other three are across Himachal Pradesh and West Bengal in the Himalayan ranges.

Meghalaya is also developing as another take off point for para gliding.

But what ever be the location, one cannot ignore the rush, feeling the wind in their face, as you soar like a bird high in the sky!!!

River Rafting, Rishikesh

Imagine the tranquility and peace found lying in the lap of Mother Nature, camped up by some of the most beloved rivers in India. With clean air, clear spirits, bright days, starlit evenings and serene surroundings, imagine the beauty of it all. And imagine the rush of adrenaline as you run down some of the strongest white water rapids fed directly off a Himalayan glacial melt…Imagine!

River Rafting, is now a global favorite for those exploring options for a grand adventure in India! The backdrop of the Himalayas not just offers an excellent playing field for serious mountaineers, climbers and trekkers, but also excellent opportunities for kayakers and river runners. The melt from age old glaciers down the drains and eventually into streams and rivers has formed some of the best runs for rafting expeditions in India.
