Paragliding in Nainital – Paragliding in Bhimtal

What is Paragliding?
Paragliders are aircraft which fly by the same aerodynamic principles that keep Boeings in the sky.

Is it for me?
General athletic ability seems to help as it requires a little hiking but once airborne the physical effort is minimal.

How safe it is?
Paragliding is an outdoor sport in which you are trying to harmonize with the forces of nature. Like any other adventure sport it is exciting because of that little element of risk but no more than climbing or swimming.

Is it scary?
Paragliding is the simplest and most serene way to fulfill humankind's oldest dream - free flight! The pilot jogs down a gentle slope and glides away from the mountain. There is no free-falling or jumping off of cliffs.

Have you ever dreamed of flying like a bird?
One of the best way to go Paragliding, fly tandem.
Take to the sky with our highly experienced instructors. You can experience the thrill of paragliding. During the flying you will be above the mountaing and views are breathtaking. You will find paradise.

You do not need any experience or knowledge, just the desire to fly and follow your instructor's guidance on positions for takeoff, time spent in the air and landing.


About Paragliding:
  • Paragliding in Nainital has evolved steadily over the few years.
  • The paraglider is a wing, rather than a parachute, having the ability to glide forwards rather than to simply descend vertically.
  • Launching a paraglider requires a short run along a gentle slope.
  • Once in flight, the pilot steers the paraglider and controls where he wishes to go.
  • The paraglider flys at a speed of around 35 - 40 kph / 20 - 25 mph.
  • It is quite possible to fly without wind as there is always air !
  • The pilot is loosely and comfortably buckled into a harness which offers support in both the standing and sitting positions.
  • Landing involves lining up for an approach into wind, and just before touching down, ‘flaring’ the wing to minimise vertical and/or horizontal speed.
