Paragliding in Dharamshala

A Paraglider is a parafoil wing that looks like a parachute. Paragliders launch like a large kite, and once in the air they glide and soar. Steering is done through control lines like a ram air parachute.

We offer Tandem flights in Bir and Dharamshala. Tandem paragliding is flying in a paraglider built for two people. The pilot and passenger fly together, with the pilot in the rear. Tandem flights are a great way to experience the thrill of flying in a Paraglider. Passengers can even take the controls in the flight and learn about flying a Paraglider throughout the flight. The harness is extremely comfortable and the low flying speed of a Paraglider makes takeoffs and landings gentle and slow.

When you book your tandem flight with us, we take care of all the logistics and ensure that you only get trusted pilots with years of experience and all the requisite qualifications.

If you're an experienced pilot, we can also help organise hike and fly trips around the area. We also offer complete lessons in paragliding. In these lessons, everything from basic launches and landings to ridge soaring and thermal flying is taught. Please contact us for more information.

Paragliding at Bir

Paragliding | Dharamshala | Above 14000 ft | Forktail Villa

Bir is India's most famous paragliding destination and a two hour drive from Forktail Villa gets you to this quaint village. Bir has held multiple paragliding competitions over the years due to its location and generally great flying conditions.

The flight duration depends on multiple factors but is generally around half an hour long. Once you reach Billing, our experienced pilots brief you on the flight and take you on what will surely be one of the most surreal experiences of your life. Soar and glide through the air and take in the truly massive scale of the Himalayas and your soar from one thermal to the next.

Paragliding at Indu Nag

Billing | Above 14000 ft | Forktail Villa | Camping

Indu Nag is a ridge that is visible from Forktail Villa. You can see gliders taking off through the day and soaring high.

Paragliding at Indu Nag is great if you do not have the time to make a day trip to Bir or want to check if paragliding is for you. Indu Nag is a half-hour drive from the Villa.

The flight duration at Indu Nag is generally 10 - 15 minutes and you get a sweeping view of Dharamshala town. In our view, it's the best way to get a lot of Dharamshala sightseeing done in one go!

Once you reach Indu Nag, one of our experienced pilots will meet you. A short briefing later, you'll be on your way gliding through the sky.
