In the Air – Take to the Sky by Hot Air Ballooning or Paraglide in India
Floating over the Rajasthan countryside in a hot air balloon, waving at the excited villagers below, or running off a mountain to gently glide, courtesy of a paraglide, down to its base, do either of these activities appeal to you? There aren’t many places in India where hot-air ballooning and paragliding take place but we have found some for you to try. Jaipur is the main base for ballooning and Bir, near Billing in Himachal Pradesh is where the International paragliding championships are held. For those of you who are short on time or have specific destinations in mind that aren’t linked logistically, then private jets are also available ensuring you arrive at your destination in modern maharajah style!
