Frequest Questions

How safe is paragliding?

Paragliding is safer than you think. However, it is an adventure sport and comes with its own risks. It is important to follow safety guidelines and listen to your instructor. 

Will I be paragliding alone?
Your instructor and other students will be learning with you on the ground.
But you will be flying solo and will thoroughly enjoy the experience. Your instructor will be with you on the radio and give you constant commands. 


How fit do I have to be?
If you can run 100 metres without any problem, you can paraglide. Participants who are generally healthy and without any serious medical condition can sign up for the course. Individuals with fear of heights and vertigo should avoid. Your weight should be between 45-95 kg.


I have children. Can they paraglide?
Yes. Children above 14 years of age are eligible to learn and fly solo too. However, they must be accompanied by an adult.


What is the closest airport?
Bir is 2 hours away by road from Dharamshala airport.
