Thrilling! I went paragliding in Manali a few years ago. So much adrenaline that I wanted to do it again after landing.
Your experience depends on the altitude.
Let me tell you my story.
I was driven 15 minutes up a steep hill in an open vehicle. My stomach danced till we got out of the jeep. But I was lucky to see others jump ahead of me. With the pilot's support, I decided to take a risk.
But the jump wasn't what I expected. I had to run down a steep mountain hauling the pilot and the parachute. It was heavy. We took off soon as the ordeal ended.
I floated for 15 minutes at 8000m. The fantastic experience on-air is beyond words. It is a must-try if visiting Manali. It is one of the most beautiful sites to fly over.
