Paragliding in Uttaranchal

Paragliding, Uttaranchal TourParagliding is the most simple form to fly and all you require is a para glider. A paraglider is a non-motorized, foot-launched inflatable wing, which is easy to transport, launch, and land. It is constructed of rip-stop nylon or high stress polyester fabric. The pilot is clipped into a harness and is in a comfortable sitting position. The harness and the Paraglider attached by sturdy kevlar lines. The Para gliders can fly in the air for hours with the help of the glider and climb to altitudes, more than 10,000 feet high or opt for cross-country flying adventure covering vast distances.

Pithoragarh : One of the most striking regions in the hills of Uttaranchal is Pithoragarh, Kumaon’s easternmost district. The district headquarters, also called Pithoragarh, is wedged in between Nepal and Tibet, in the tiny Soar Valley of the Lesser Himalayas. The valley is flanked by four hills - Chandak, Dhwaj, Thal Kedar and Kundar - and is dramatic in its beauty. Pithoragarh is in the heart of adventure country. In ancient times, the town had as many as six passes into Tibet, and it is still on the sacred Kailash-Mansarovar trail. Treks to the Milam and Namik Glaciers are kick-started here. A number of adventure sports are possible in the region and we will organize them for you. Hang gliding, paragliding, trekking, skiing, canoeing, river rafting and fishing.

For the nature lover and wildlife enthusiast, there are hikes through Pithoragarh’s thick forests where you can spot snow leopards, musk deer and peafowl. The rolling meadows surrounding the town are soft with velvet grass and the scent of wild flowers - lovely for a lazy day in the sun!Pithoragarh was the medieval bastion of the Chand rulers, who were great builders of temples. Many of them lie in ruins, but pilgrims still visit the others and festivals are celebrated here in a big way. Visit the Kapileshwar temple, an ancient cave-temple dedicated to Shiva; the Kamaksha temple; and the Kailash Ashram.

After its discovery, this hill station gradually developed as a centre of education, business, tourism and beauty.
