Detailed overview

Paragliding is an adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no primary rigid structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below the fabric wing. As with all aircraft, launching and landing are done into the wind. The wing is placed into an airstream, either by running or being pulled or an existing wind. Even though the engines are not used in paragliding, the flights can easily last up to a few kilometers and for several hours.

Location
Initially called Karmakshetra, meaning the land of your actions, Kamshet is located off the Mumbai-Pune Highway, which was earlier named NH 4. Buddhist cave temples, medieval fortresses, and hill stations are dotted along the highway and are often utilized for paragliding. Kamshet is around 110 km from Mumbai and 45 km from Pune, and the new expressway makes commuting to it quite easy.

Topography
Kamshet is generally chosen to conduct paragliding training in Pune because of the moderate elevation of the Sahyadri mountain range. Here novice and student pilots can easily reach the take-off points as they are not at great heights. As the hills do not soar high in the sky, there are plentiful spacious landing areas, which are essential for beginners.

Cancellation

  • 100% refund if cancelled before 3 days
  • No refund after that
