Paragliding in Mumbai For An Exciting Escape From The City

Paragliding in Mumbai starts after the monsoon in October and lasts until May. There are a few things one must keep in mind before going for paragliding. The sport requires little physical fitness as the glider will be needed to run before the gliding starts.

One must wear comfortable, non-baggy clothes and good sports shoes. The gliding other than being exciting can also be a little intimidating, so those with chronic medical conditions are advised to take note of all the concerns. However, paragliding is the best way for someone to overcome the fear of heights, and they are encouraged to build up some mental strength and courage and go for it.
