And yes, we decided to not miss the chance. Without further delay, we signed the form and the next moment we were waiting to reach the launch site, located around 14km apart.
Actually, the adventure starts as soon as you leave on your vehicle over that not so well maintained path. I would say the journey was nothing less than a roller coaster ride. My heart beating fast, the roads were challenging me more as if saying, there is more to come that you never want to face.
We finally reached the place and that was the time for second thoughts. Both my friends were all ready for the flight and there I was standing confused, terrified, accusing myself of the decision I made. My guide or paragliding pilot was waiting for me down at the valley and suddenly I said no-I can’t do that.
I was about to cry thinking what if something happened. I have never seen down from a 5th-floor building and I was about to fly from a height of 2400 meters, for 30 minutes. It was the hardest time for me, although it seems to be very funny when I think about it now, at that time, it was really terrifying.
I had no choice so I have to prepare myself for this dying and scary experience. And sooner I found myself above the dense greenery higher than I have ever thought of. That was magical and not for a single second I was regretting this decision. Yes, I was afraid, I asked my pilot to take it slow and easy with no more stunts on the air, and I enjoyed the ride. There were butterflies in my stomach, I was shivering with fear, but yes a part of me was happy and I realized it after 20 Minutes that is after landing.
