gliding, at its most primitive level, fulfils humankind's
desire to emulate the birds.
a relatively recent entrant within the ambit of adventure
sports, hang gliding has really caught on with clubs
coming up in cities such as Pune, Delhi, Chandigarh,
Shimla, Mumbai, Devlali, Bangalore and Kalaheti.
to experts, while India has good thermal soaring effects
during the summer months, and offers hill soaring
almost round the year, the soaring in the winter months-although
too static-is also good for hang-gliding.
sites in India have been identified by expert hang
gliders with those in the lower reaches of the Himalayas
rated as/among the best in the world.
