Experience the Best Paragliding in Sikkim
Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-
flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended
below a fabric wing comprising a large number of interconnected baffled cells. Wing shape is maintained
by the suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing, and the aerodynamic
forces of the air flowing over the outside.
Despite not using an engine, paragliders flight can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometers, though flights of one to two hours and covering some tens of kilometers are more the norm. By skillful exploitation of sources of lift, the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand meters.
One does not need any experience or training to enjoy paragliding in Gangtok. Because the operators here offer Tandem Flights. Which means that an experienced and certified pilot will accompany you. Both pilot and the passenger sit safely and comfortably in harness which is attached to the para-glider. The pilot takes care of the entire flight and its navigation. So after an easy take off, you will only enjoy the flight with breathtaking views.
