Paragliding In Nainital
Paragliding has increasingly becoming popular over the years due to increasing demand of adventure activities.
The Paragliding is the most simple form to fly and all you require is a Para glider. A Para-glider is a non-motorized, foot-launched inflatable wing, which is easy to transport, launch, and land.The Para gliders can fly in the air for hours with the help of the glider and climb to altitudes, more than 10,000 feet high or opt for cross-country flying adventure covering vast distances
It is quite possible to fly without wind as there is always air !
Landing involves lining up for an approach into wind, and just before touching down, ‘flaring’ the wing to minimise vertical and/or horizontal speed.
You do not need any experience or knowledge, just the desire to fly and follow your instructor's guidance on positions for take off, time spent in the air and landing.

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.
How scary Is It?
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.
