DAY 1


If you are young and adventure junkie looking for life time experience then I would strongly recommend you for Paragliding in Gangtok Sikkim Northeast India.

Recently this summer May 2017 I visited Gangtok Sikkim and I fell in love with the pleasant weather, welcoming locals and mesmerizing views. During my visit I tried paragliding for the first time.

About Paragliding you need not have to visit any tour operator or book in advance. There is only one spot in Gangtok from where paragliding activity takes place i.e. SIKKIM PARAGLIDING ADVENTURE SPORTS – COOPERATIVE SOCIETY LIMITED. It is operated by the cooperative society of Gangtok. So book any cab they will drop you to spot.

Our driver dropped us at this paragliding spot and found that they offer two types of Paragliding:

Medium Fly- 5-10mins for Rs 2500/-

High Fly- 20-30mins for Rs 5000/-

One has to be physically fit and weight below or approx 90kg. Payment options are Cash, Debit Card and Credit Card. If you want to capture your moments they will charge Rs 500/- extra for video making. So make sure your phone memory has space to store the memory of your breathtaking flight. The whole process takes approx 2 to 3hour.

Since this is my first paragliding, here I swiped my credit card and booked for the medium fly. After weighing your weight in the weighing machine, from office they will drive you to the nearest highest point through the villages which were serene and the cleanest village I experienced. The drive is for about an hour which was also an experience in itself with its mesmerizing views and adventurous roads.

Once you reach the spot you will have to walk up a bit. The view from the top was awestruck. While your pilot is busy preparing the flight the other start giving you instructions of do and dont’s. And here you GO-RUN-FLY—-WoooohhoooooO!!!!

Exactly that is how I screamed and my heart was beating faster than the normal and the feeling that you experience is for life time. The adrenaline rush, you forget all your sorrows in life for a few moment and feel free like a bird.

The view during the fly, its picturesque backdrops, mystic mountains and the lush greenery paddy fields will leave you spellbound. One needs a brave heart to do this and soar high in the air. :)

P.S. : However they will make you sign a document that you are responsible for any accident, its completely safe as you are accompanied by a certified and trained pilot.

Happy Adventure!!! Happy Blogging!!! Happy Gangtok!!!
