ParaglidingParagliding is one of the most popular sports for adventure enthusiasts in India. This sport is much dependent on the season since thermal currents play an important role in it.

Sure to set your adrenalin rushing, paragliding is no less than adventure. How often do you get to soar like a bird in the endless sky and feel like you really do have a grip on your life!

The low-lying valleys of Himachal Pradesh heat up in summers due to which hot air rises up and forms thermal current in vertical columns. The thermal currents are helpful in aiding the glider while taking off. The most common method to become airborne is known as 'Hill Launch'. In this, the pilot jumps off from the edge of a hill, thus inflating the canopy of the glider and glide in the sky with the help of a thermal current. Once the pilot reaches the desired height, the inflated canopy resists the thermal current so that the pilot can glide down slowly until he/she finds another thermal current to rise again.
