In 1997, Kamshet was reborn as a paragliding destination
Nirvana Adventures came into being in 1997 to fulfill your dreams of free flight by offering a safe standardized and encouraging atmosphere to anyone interested in taking up the sport of paragliding as a hobby. It all began with the discovery of ideal paragliding sites in 1996. With time, energy and dedication Nirvana Adventures became a pioneering paragliding school that in turn led to the transformation of Kamshet into a world paragliding destination.
When Nirvana Adventures first began, there was a lot to achieve. The area was remote and paragliding was unheard of in the region. There was a dire need to concentrate and focus on creating basic infrastructure to meet the immediate needs.
Nirvana Adventures actively involved the local village community at all stages – from making tea and drinking water available, supervised parking, providing ISD telephone service and initiating the use of the local jeeps as transport. It was a Herculean task indeed! Every year Nirvana Adventures commemorates the decade long journey undertaken together with the local community, our students and visitors
Since 1997, Nirvana Adventures has always extended a hand to anyone who's interested in joining the magical world of paragliding. Today we’re a full-fledged adventure company who teach, cherish and share some unbelievable paragliding and outdoor adventure experiences to numerous students and visiting pilots from all over the world. Many of them come back every week, month or even annually. Nirvana Adventures has become a second home for these pilots. Vibrant and seamless paragliding communities where you can fly make new friends and feel at home.
