Know before you go
Paragliding definitely spikes up your adrenaline and it is advised that people with heart problems do not attempt it.
Paragliding operators in Vagamon only fly people within the weight range of 30kg to 120kg.
Even though you will not be manoeuvring the launch and landing, do carry a good pair of walking or sport shoes.
While you are there
Hike up to the wooden cross at Kurisumala, a popular Christian pilgrimage site just 2km from the city centre. Take a walk through the Pine Hill, located 4km from Vagamon and refresh your spirit with the soothing aroma of pinewood. If you are in Vagamon for a longer duration, then take a 10km detour to the Ulipooni Wildlife Sanctuary.
