Paragliding flights are a great way to enjoy the full aerial experience, without having to first learn how to launch and control the paraglider yourself.
At the top of the hill, the instructors will equip you with a helmet and harness while explaining some of the basic rules and take-off procedures.
After a few steps, you will start to fly through the air and follow the wind, while you comfortably sit in the harness.

Paragliding is an adventure sport where a person glides through the air using a wide canopy, a fabric wing that’s made up of a large number of interconnected cells. In paragliding, the pilot “takes off” from an elevated position, usually the top of a hill or mountain, then uses wind forces to help him maintain flight — sometimes even gaining altitudes! Throughout the flight, the pilot sits in a harness suspended below the wing.
Good things never come easy, it was true in this case. To jump off the mountain you need to go up to the spot first. So from the mainland, you need to trek up to the jump zone. or on our case, our guide will drive you up, depending on the location you chose to paraglide. I was too excited and at the same time a bit nervous.
About after 10-15 minutes, finally reached the launch spot. There were other paragliders launching off, I was all set to fly in few minutes 🙂
At the jump zone, they got an indemnity form signed, in case you meet an accident you are responsible for the same 😉 This was important as paragliding is an extreme sport and it may risk your life or chances of getting injured.
After that got a short briefing and explanation and got geared up and strapped to the parachute and the instructor.
Standing at the edge of the mountain and looking down the world was an experience hard to explain in words.
Though taking off was much easier than I thought! Just a few steps running down the hill and in the air!
And so after a short run, we started flying, with the force of the wind. Admiring the mountains around us It was a magnificent view and a very exciting experience to be so high up in the sky. The world felt tiny and the sky was the limit. Thrilling!!!
During the flight had a chit chat with the pilot about how long he is flying, from where is he trained etc. He taught me some techniques too and let me drive. It was a short paragliding learning session for me up in the air 😉
Furthermore, the parachute steered into a downward spiral. It felt like being on a rollercoaster, but better! It was so much fun!
Then we started to descend, slowly. The way to land for paragliding is similar to take off. And finally landed safely with both feet on the ground.
