    Sign Up For A Paragliding Experience At This Beautiful And Not So Touristy Hill Station

    Ten-Second Takeaway

    An up and coming tourist hotspot, Vagamon is a lush hill station in Kerala offering plenty of thrills. Prime among them is the chance to paraglide through the serene skies.

     

    Fly By

    Summer is on its way out and if you’d like to see it off on a high note, we recommend a trip to pretty-as-a-picture Vagamon, in the neighbouring state of Kerala. Less crowded than Munnar, Vagamon is dotted with verdant hills that are cloaked with mist. Of course, this makes it the perfect summer retreat and if you are heading here and want to do more than just relax with the fam or your bae — Vagamon is gaining popularity as a paragliding hub.

    The scene of action is Kolahalamedu, a hill range that’s a short drive from Vagamon and is home to Amruthamedu, one of the highest peaks around here. You can either sign up with Bangalore-based Thrillophilia for the experience or look up the local Fly Vagamon club, that’s popular with adventure seekers who visit Vagamon.

    Sky’s The Limit

    For newbies, the tandem paragliding {where you are accompanied by an instructor} experience would work best. The best time would be to get there before May ends or you can plan ahead and sign up for the upcoming season {between Sept and Jan, it resumes again in March and continues till May}. The experience lasts for about 20 minutes and during your time floating about the skies, you can get a bird’s eye view of the green hills streaked with gushing rivulets, waterfalls, and endless pine plantations.
