What Touching Cloudbase Offers
At Touching Cloudbase we offer Tandem flights and Paragliding lessons. A Paraglider is a parafoil wing that looks like a parachute. Paragliders launch like a large kite, and once in the air they glide and soar depending on the competency level of the pilot. Steering is done through control lines like a ram air parachute.
Tandem Paragliding is flying in a Paraglider built for two people. The pilot and passenger fly front and back, with the pilot in the rear. Tandem flights are a great way to experience the thrill of flying in a Paraglider. Passengers can even take the controls in the flight and learn about flying a Paraglider throughout the flight. The harness is extremely comfortable and the low flying speed of a Paraglider makes takeoffs and landings gentle and slow.
We also offer complete lessons in paragliding. In these lessons, everything from basic launches and landings to ridge soaring and thermal flying are taught. We provide the equipment for the students and the training sites are in the Manali and Billing area of Himachal Pradesh.
“For most gulls it was not flying that matters, but eating. For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight.”
