Paragliding scene in India started 7 years ago, though it is now just about gaining popularity. India has immense flying possibilities with Himalayas in the North and the Sahayadri ranges in the west coast. There have been international competitions where distance world records were set. These sites have conditions for both ridge, thermal soaring and ideal cross country routes, almost all the year round except the monsoons.
Paragliding is relatively new in India and as yet there are no such governing / regulatory bodies for the same, though there are a few set-ups for flying / learning. Picturesque hills, misty lakes, lush greenery, pleasant climate and easy accessibility by road / rail.
