Paragliding in Chennai For An Exciting Escape In The City

Paragliding in Chennai allows one to enjoy the thrills and excitement in the city while soaring in the sky. Visitors have the provision of enjoying an activity like paragliding in Chennai with the help of motors. This technique is called paramotoring. Getting in the sky and sailing smoothly over the hills like an eagle is a fantastic experience.

Flying across the sky of Chennai and enjoying the surreal beauty of the city must be on one's 'to do' on visiting Chennai. Paragliding requires the participant to strap on a parachute and fly through the sky.

The alternate version, Paramotoring is equally accessible in Chennai. In paramotoring, the person is made to sit on a small motor car which has an attached parachute. The vehicle is driven fast on the plain land, and then the parachute lifts it into the air.

Paragliding is held on Marina Beach whereas parasailing (through the sea) is held on a small coastal town called Kovalam in Chennai. In parasailing, one puts on the harness with the parachute attached and then a long rope attached to high-speed boat pulls the person in the air — quite an experience with a lot of adrenaline rush.

Best time: Early mornings and evenings are the best time to fly.

Weight limit: 80 kg

Cost: A ride costs approximately 2,500. Also, it costs about Rs. 700 for a solo ride of 20-minutes during the peak season. 

Height of flight: The height depends primarily on the weather conditions. The paraglider is taken up to an elevation of 1000 feet on a plain ground. 

Location: Held on boats off the coast of the Marina beaches and Kovalam, this adventure sport is popular with most tourists. One can either go solo or with a partner.

Timings: From 9:30 PM to 6 PM.

Average flight time: 10-15 minutes
