Ten-second takeaway

For those of you who dream of soaring like a kite {even if it’s only for a few minutes}, a parasailing adventure is in order. And here’s exactly where you should go.

 Sailing high

If being swept off your feet {literally} is your idea of a good time, then Jakkur Aerodrome’s parasailing experience is just the thing for you. You will be attached to a parasail {a parachute, basically}, which in turn will be safely tethered to a jeep. Then, once the vehicle starts to move and you pick up wind, you’ll slowly start to lift upwards. Much like a kite, you’ll soon be flying through the clouds {okay, not so high}. Once you get your breath and heartbeat back, open your eyes and look down at the scenic sights of the city. Or enjoy the peace and silence around while you are up in the air, at a height of 200-300 feet above ground for almost 3 minutes.

Up, up in the air

Popular among youngsters, adventure enthusiasts as well as office-goers looking for a much-needed break from the buzz of the city, parasailing apparently is one of the safest aerosports, according to Paresh Karmarkar {who organizes the activity at Jakkur Aerodrome}, making it a great weekend option for families. Suitable for children aged 4-10, the tandem parasailing option lets a parent fly with the little one. Next time you are out of weekend plans, sign yourself up along with your family or friends {the more the merrier} for this airy adventure and float away.

Where: Jakkur Aerodrome, Yelahanka Post

When: Weekends, 8am-4pm
