A wonderful little hillside tucked away from the highway. Early mornings at Shinde Tekdi are beautiful with mist, chirping birds, grasses waving in the gentle breeze and excited students running up and down with brightly colored wings. In this album we cover Shilpa and Mitali as they progresses from day one to three of the course and achieves their dreams of free flight.
Our favorite flying site and the first we discovered in this area, Shelar oozes atmosphere – what with the kids who pack your wings, the amazing summer sunsets and the extraordinary Shelar Mama (uncle) who supplies tea, snacks and bang on comments!. This is where we hold the Nirvana Adventures End of Season Party just before the SW monsoons arrives.
Just off the highway but yet high above it all, the Tower Hill site works from October to March. Flying goes on all through the day here and we often hang out for the entire day in the sun and make a picnic out of it. Expect to see a mixed bunch of paragliders from all over the world meet up here. If you are watchful you may see the occasional raptor fly by.
Young Lina is all excited about flying like a bird. Follow her excitement and her mom’s trepidation as she make her way up to the takeoff, imitates her dad by helping other paragliders at takeoff, gets geared up a and treated like a princess by the Nirvana Adventures crew before she takes to the skies with her dad.
Nirvana Adventures’ trips are open to Club Pilots. Each year we announce trips to different places 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. Here we present a mix of pix from our various trips.
This world famous annual event is a tradition that Nirvana Adventures initiated in 2003. Held at the end of May before the SW monsoons arrive to celebrate the great flying here and to thank the children and the farmers because of whose goodwill we fly here. It begins with a prayer to ‘Gonshubai’ the deity of the hills whom the farmers pray to for a good monsoon.
