Adventure Seekers Can Now Go Paragliding In Jammu And Kashmir

Adventure sports like paragliding add a different feel to your vacation. A few of us only choose travel destinations based on the adventure sports we can experience. One such adventure sport that gets the heart racing is paragliding, where one jumps from a great height and glides through the air. Many places in India offer extraordinary experiences in paragliding, and now, Jammu and Kashmir have joined the bandwagon.

Kashmir Tourism has launched the paragliding adventure sport in Srinagar by tying up with a private paragliding firm. With this move in place, tourists can now visit Srinagar’s Astanmarg Top to experience the sport. The paragliding starts from the top to the Chandpora ground and covers a distance of 2000 ft.
