Paragliding Trips

Club Pilots are welcome to partake in exciting paragliding trips which we undertake in various locations around the world.

Since we came together in 97’ the nirvana paragliding team has taken time out each year to explore new sites. Venturing out of our home skies every now and again to explore, experience and discover the immense flying possibilities in the country and abroad has kept the excitement alive and the adrenalin pumping.

Club Pilots can look forward to our paragliding trips & tours to sites around the country and abroad. These tours are aimed at improving our flying skills, and gain an understanding of the information to keep us flying safe and flying high at new and different sites. The instructors on your tour provide coaching and tandem instruction. Subscribe to our mailing list to be informed about trips & tours.

Parapente on the Atlantic Coast

Dune de Pyla- France

The Dune is a Mecca for paragliding pilots from across the world. Which of us have not seen the most amazing fun flying videos of graceful ridge dancing, daring low flying and deadly death spirals done here.

Paragliding pilots dream about flying here at least once in their lives. With Francois and Gwen's wedding taking place further up the coast no way were we going to miss this fantastic opportunity.

The Great Dune of Pyla is the highest dune in Europe 7 kms long, 107 meters high it rises nearly 1000' above the sea, offering extremely reliable conditions and an excellent learning environment, for all standards of pilot. The ocean providing laminar smooth air and the Dune, a soft forgiving hill to soak up any mistakes.

The flying here is everything we imagined and more and Sanjay Astrid and Sunith Rao all had an idyllic time at this amazing place.

Free flying in the South of France

Bir Moustiers Ste Marie France

Good Karma brought us to magical Moustiers St Marie, a beautiful small village nestled between calciferous cliffs in the Haute Alps region of the South of France. We landed up here because it is Philippe Libre's playground. A fantastic place for paragliding, rock climbing and all kinds of adventure sport. We heard of this place from Philippe and François who have been coming to Nirvana Adventures and the Native Place for the past few years but we never imagined it would be this way.

It turned out to be a dark horse. It simply knocked us down with its true to style architecture, poetic beauty and wonderful people. The flying here is simply fantastic. Thermodynamic conditions and takeoffs at different altitudes make it pretty consistent too. We had some amazing flights over the spectacular countryside of legendary Provence, did some radical rock climbing and retreated each night to Philippe and Karen's captivating home, a medieval farmhouse in a clearing among the mountains.

An unmatched experience.

Himalayan flying holiday

Bir Billing, Himachal Pradesh, India

A bunch of Nirvana Pilots traveled up to Bir Billing for a thermalling and cross country flying clinic and to experience the awesomeness of flying in the Himalayas.

The conditions here differ starkly from our home sites at Kamshet but pretty soon we were buzzing high up in the Himalayan skies along with the awe inspiring Himalayan Griffon vultures, other birds of prey and paragliders from all over the world. We had interesting experiences, memorable flights and covered distances.

On the day we arrived we looked up at the flying site and the lofty peaks of the Dhauladar range in awe. By the end of the trip we bid a fond farewell to what we now considered to be ‘friendly mountains’.

Yelagiri Paragliding Festival

Yelagiri Hills, Tamilnadu, India

Yelagiri is a newly discovered site, a hill station a couple of hours away from Bangalore and Chennai. It was the Nirvana Adventures paragliding team’s first visit to Yelagiri, a beautiful hill station in Tamilnadu. The festival, which is organized by the Tamil Nadu Tourism and Yelagiri Adventure Sports Association (YASA), has been attracting a healthy number of paragliding pilots from across the country. 3 days of free flying and bonding with the pilot community is what we had to look forward to here. What more can you ask for. Yelagiri launch site is 500m a.g.l & the ridge is 8kms long. There are launch sites for NW,SW & SE wind directions. We flew from the SW site and although we often had low cloud cover it was possible to fly every day.

Free Flying in God's Own Country

Vagamon, Kerela, India

Gods own country, a small hill station with rolling hills, and a virgin site with a 10 km long ridge, a grassy take off at 1100 meters and landing, a two acre field at 100 meters seemed to have a lot of promise. This trip was a Nirvana family trip. Gokul, Vidya & Veda, Chintu & Shwetambara, Piku, Hiren, Sachin, Dilip and Sanjay, met up with Hari as well as Meidi & Caroline who had visited us at Kamshet the previous Christmas.

The entire team was very excited about flying this incredible site and exploring its flying possibilities. This was the first fly at Vagamon open to all pilots. Veda the youngest member of the Nirvana team was their mascot. It was Chintu's first free flying experience away from Kamshet on his new Sport 3.

The gang had a super time as usual and Gokul being a knowing the local lingo organized for a variety of Kerela delicacies for the group to sample each evening. Morning flights were the norm as the mist hung around takeoff in the evenings. On the last day everyone landed at the bottom where cultural evening was organized.
