The Chance To Go (Or Learn) Paragliding Is Just Two Hours Away From Mumbai

    What Makes It Awesome

    Always wanted to fly in the sky? Well, Nirvana Adventures is giving you a chance to learn that skill.

    Nirvana Adventures is geared towards newbies to the sport. Their roster includes tandem paragliding joyrides, site guiding, courses to learn paragliding which range from two days to a club pilot course, as well as conducting explorations and free-flying trips to sites around the area.

    It's their two-day course that caught our eye since it would make for a great weekend getaway for those looking to do something different.

    The highlight of the course is several low altitude flights (bunny hops) off the bottom slopes of the training hill. During this course, you'll be taught the forward launch technique, ground handling, how to conduct low-level flights, course correction, maintaining airspeed, landing post-landing procedure, site assessment, as well as audio and video interactive sessions.

    The course package includes equipment usage, course material, instruction and radio supervision. Complimentary site transport and food and stay at the guesthouse is also included. You can also call ahead if you want to just visit for a day and try out paragliding just once with a trained instructor, and they can set it up for you.

    Courses Offered: Beginner Level Paragliding Courses

    Duration: 2 Days, 3 Days, & 4 Day Courses offered.

    Price: INR 12,000 (2-day course)


    Be warned, plan your visit during good weather, since they won’t be conducting any paragliding during unsafe conditions, such as excessive rain.
