This 5 Days Paragliding Course helps you get introduced to paragliding as a sport and get yourself train P1+P2 Level. The paragliding site we have is ideal for beginners to the sport and the surrounding forested hills offer exciting possibilities for short treks & hikes, overnight camping deep inside forest and mountain biking trails to explore neighboring villages and other fun based activities like aeromodelling and stunt kite flying.
P1 LEVEL (Beginners): This is normally a basic paragliding introduction course, where you learn some safety, theory and ground handling. The duration can be from two to three days. In this course you fly under the direct supervision of the instructors (on radio).
P2 LEVEL (Novice): Once you have cleared your P1 Level, you can start your P2 Paragliding Course. A little more advanced take off and flying techniques like reverse launch are taught. During this course, you develop altitude judgement and log in more flying time. This is when you start learning soaring through practice maneuvers.
Accommodation: Our paragliding site is located in Goluchina Region close to Ranikhet town, where you will be staying in a century old and traditionally renovated stone house called Daan-kudi – a local term for the highest dwelling in the valley. From the courtyard one can see a broad cultivated valley ringed by rising hills on all sides dotted with small villages on its slopes. In the center of the valley is small stone temple, one of the only two in the Himalayas.
Staying here, you will not only learn paragliding, but one can also choose to go for short walks to explore hidden architectural gems. The surrounding mountain ranges are ideal for hiking, camping out deep in the forest or exploring neighboring villages on 21-Geared Mountain Bikes. Or you could simply choose to hang around the Daan-kudi and enjoy endless cups of tea and delicious Kumaoni Food.
