Kamshet paragliding trip
My paragliding experience at Kamshet was an adventure assorted with fun, hope you savour the same by reading this experience.
Kamshet is located at 45 kms from Pune, the roads become rusty as you reach towards your destination. This location is huge and excellent for paragliding. Open space beyond your eyes can see. You must have your own vehicle for commuting, as this place is in outskirts and you won’t find any other option than a private vehicle.
Do I know how to do paragliding alone? I wish, I could have done it alone but as I wasn’t trained, I had to go for Tandem Paragliding. Well it’s nothing technical, you can have the awesome experience without even knowing it. You will have a trained tandem pilot who would take you on the joy ride.
What are you supposed to do then? Nothing enjoy the breeze with open arms at hundreds of meters of altitude. Is it scary, of course it is, otherwise what’s the fun in it? My pilot also did some flips in the air it was thrilling and an incredible moment.
Where to book?
Don’t make the mistake of going directly without booking as you might be disappointed. There will be several paragliding companies you can find which will offer you the experience, we booked it through “Nirvana adventures” which was indeed the best thing to do.
We chose to have our journey with “Nirvana Adventures” to book this breath-taking experience as they have the best trained gliders and facilities at their base camp.
The camp is beautiful, surrounded by lush green trees. This place has absolute serenity which makes you feel like sleeping in lap of nature.
We also had fun with friends exploring this place along with wonderful memories. The only thing which I regret was, we had to leave the place in one day due to work commitments.
“Nirvana adventures” also offers other facilities like accommodation, food and airport pick up. So if you are bag packer nirvana does the work for you.
You can also learn to fly alone they offer different packages from a two day to week long courses. Isn’t it amazing? Next time I will make sure I fetch out one week’s time to visit this place and fly alone this time for much more thrilling experience.

What are things you should definitely carry when you go for a one day trip?
You get nothing here at the spot where paragliding happens so do carry the essentials:
- Bottle of water
- Sun glasses
- Sun tan lotion
Paragliding is a complete weather and wind dependent sport, there could be last minute changes. I advice you to reach early. Usually a normal tandem trip costs around 2500 for 15 mins, it varies with the company you book with.
If you are visiting Pune, do take out some time to visit Kamshet to have this awesome experience.
