At the take-off spot, after a thorough briefing by a certified paragliding pilot, you'll be strapped in the safety harness, ready to take off! With the pilot navigating the glider, all you need to do is contain your excitement and grab awe-inspiring, bird's-eye views of the Dhauladhar mountains and the Bir valley during your flight. After surfing the winds for 30-45 mins, the pilot will gently land the glider at the landing spot.
