Inspiration – Fly and you will know

Seldom we avoid doing new things due to some mental blocks. For some it is fear of unknown, and for many it is inertia preventing them from breaking a routine. I feel we should always be open for new experiences in day to day life, and try to do at least something which exposes our consciousness, and mind, to the whole new world. We need take a road less travelled!

Paragliding is one such sport. It pushes up the envelope of adventure to the whole new level. It is the only aviation sport in the world, where the weight of the craft is lighter than that of the pilot, and it can be carried as a back-pack!! With paragliding, under suitable weather conditions, one can explore remote mountains and valleys from a sky, which possibly will take days to reach on foot. While flying, one gets to see the breathtaking views of the natural beauty, which are privy to the birds.

The photograph below is shot at Bir-Billing in Himachal Pradesh (India) during one of my training flights. Snow clad peaks of Dhauladhar range of Himalayas are visible in the background, and one can actually easily fly over-and-around them on a favorable day! View of the Himalayasโ€‹ from the sky is heavenly. It makes you appreciate the power, vastness, and beauty of mother nature.

You will never know unless you try. Fly ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I once almost try paragliding when I visited Turkey last year but eventually I could not.. The fear is unbearable and also the price are so expensive so at the time when I am still a student so it is not so affordable.. However I did try to overcome my height fear by joining parasailing and take a hot air balloon while I vacation in Egypt.. Its a worthy memories.. Indeed the beautiful view from the sky only can be experienced and better appreciation if u FLY! hehe =) nice entry and what a brave of u!

    1. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks a lot !

      Yeah, it is indeed out of the world feeling. It is by far one of the best way to explore natural beauty. Also, fear of height goes away after initial few flights, nothing to worry.
