ParaGliding & PowerGliding

Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. 

The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing comprising a large number of interconnected baffled cells. Wing shape is maintained by the suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing, and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside.

Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometers, though flights of one to two hours and covering some tens of kilometers are more the norm. By skilful exploitation of sources of lift, the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand meters
All your life you wanted to be free as a bird to soar high up and watch the world get tinier and tinier. You can make this dream come true by Paragliding. Take off from a mountain top and land in the valley below on a Para Glider and enjoy exhilarating ride in air before floating back to mother earth.

Uttarakhand, Imphal and Himachal are best regions for Paragliding.
