  Note :— just in case you are concerned about paragliding’s safety, let me tell you pilots are well trained and very motivating. They will boost your confidence and morale and will make you feel comfortable. Also, paragliding can only be done at most by people having weight of 75 kgs . It’s very rare if you are over weight.

If you are lucky and your AVT rider is cool enough, he will even let you drive the vehicle and can teach you as well. Trust me it’s wonderful.

It is believed that in winters the fall above the Anjani Mahadev’s shivlinga frozes and builds a 40ft tall snow Shivlinga and in summers feet chilling water welcomes you to the temple.
