This was my first paragliding experience and Varkala is an incredible place if you are a first timer. I loved the entire experience. The view is just great and not for a minute you will feel scared as the instructors and pilots are well trained who assure you are enjoying the best of your time.
After going for paragliding in Munnar before this, this was my second time. Varkala looks awesome from up there. A little scary but feels awesome once I let go.
INCREDIBLE!!! I just can't believe that being a Delhite all my life I had no idea about paragliding in Vagamon. Great experience, just loved every bit of it.
It was a bit scary for me in the start as I have fear of heights. But after a few minutes, I was comfortable with paragliding and I enjoyed it a lot.
Those few minutes in the sky and I was able to feel the adrenaline rush within me along with enjoying the aerial views of Munnar. The best part of the entire flight was the dive. The way you start descending and the opening of the parachute, times spent high above the ground and finally the landing part, they all were so wow man. Thanks to the pilot, the other crew members for such an amazing flight.
I can't describe my actual experience in some words. I was shivering before take-off but after that, I feel I was flying like a bird with no boundaries!
The activity of paragliding started from a drive to the top of the take-off site and the ride itself was so beautiful.
The best paragliding I did so far.
A must adventure to do once in a life. Not once but again n again. Vagamon is one of the best places for paragliding. It feels amazing and comfortable while flying in the sky.
