India came to the attention of the world paragliding community in 1992 when Frenchman Xavier Remond set a world record by flying 132 km from Billing in Himachal Pradesh. Top pilots were lured to the challenge of Himalaya, including New Zealander Bruce Mills. He stayed on and is credited with training a generation of local pilots, along with Roshan Lal Thakur who runs the Himalayan Institute of Adventure Sports in Kullu Valley. Debu Chaudhry, a Manali local, was barely a teenager when he began flying with Mills ten years ago. In 2003, when India competed at a Paragliding World Cup for the first time, Chaudhry was part of the three member team. He now travels between Europe, Himachal Pradesh and Nepal working as an instructor and tandem pilot. Also on the team were Gurpreet Dhindsa, who has a paragliding school based in Bir, and Adie Kumar who recently competed in Australia and Japan.

India is now a paragliding hot spot as the diverse landscape offers a huge variety of options for all skill levels including instruction. Its a great place for beginners because of the high number of flyabe days, the low cost and the cultural experience.(not mentioning the parties). For the cost of a basic course in your home country you can get international instuction and plus a holiday in India. There are internationally certified PG instructors and a lot of highly experienced gurus around. Some paragliding schools now offer international licenses. MORE>>>

There are a huge number of potential flying sites in India but most of the flying happens in the Himalayas and around the Western ghats. The popular sites for serious flying are Billing, Manali area, in the north. Kamshet & around Pune in the west, Goa, Nandi Hills & Vagamon in the south.. No ifo on the north east as yet.

Somewhere in India is flyable almost all year round, except during the monsoon months of July to early September when the winds are crazy. The best flying season varies from site to site but generally post-monsoon October to March is good.This makes India an excellent place to come when the weather in Europe has deteriorated and the Southern Hemisphere season has not yet started.

Take a few tandem rides,flying up there with the the birds , its like nothing on earth. Prices vary but are in the Rs1500 to Rs3000 range. During tourist season the prices tend to go up and you should book in advance to get the best time of day. The other better option is to take a 3 or more day Paragliding Holiday and enjoy maximum flytime with everything taken care of.MORE INFO HERE>>

Once you have dicided to learn there are experienced paragliding schools & instructors around the country that you can choose from. Allmost all the schools provide all the gear you would need included in the instruction cost, and would arrange accomodation too. All you need to do is go there.
