Paragliding

Himachal Pradesh is home to Bir in Kangra valley that holds many international paragliding events and we plan excursions to Bir.

Himachal Pradesh makes one of the best places in India to enjoy paragliding because of the scenic view it offers.

Our pilots are members of the IPA (Indian Paragliding Association) and have 7 to 12 years of flying experience. All the equipment used by us is imported, checked and approved.

We take all precautions to ensure that your paragliding experience is comfortable and fun.

Don’t be surprised if eagles or other birds accompany you on your flight.
