  • The trip was fabulous. Shimla is an amazing place with lots to see and do. Our tour operator was excellent. All of their suggestions and recommendations were solid. We loved our hotel and the location. All the tours were high-quality and we experienced no difficulties with pickups. Mr. Nitin was extremely pleasant to work with and truly wanted us to have a fabulous time.

  • We cannot recommend this travel company enough! My husband and I had been wanting to go to India for quite some time but had not done so due to lack of time to plan a worthwhile trip. Booking with this company was exactly what we needed--we told them the types of places and sites we wanted to see and they took care of the rest.

  • I got exactly the vacation I wanted for almost no work and probably cheaper than I could have done it myself. I told this travel company what I wanted and they just did the rest. The hotels and tours/activities were great! Couldn't have asked for more. Great service too they were very responsive and helpful!

Paragliding

As I set off, accompanied by Ashis Thapa, mountaineering instructor for Sterling Holidays Resort and the adventure sports manager of the resort, Hira it started to drizzle. And this organisation in Mcleodganj, being safety concerned, doesn’t want to take any risks. Moreover, the paragliders that are bought from China cost around Rs 2-3 lakh each and get damaged if they come in contact with mud and water. Hira opined, “These paragliders are costly. In China, there is an international paragliding festival and they have norms that they cannot use old paragliders, so each year they sell these gliders at a discounted rate after single use.” Only licensed paraglider pilots are hired for this activity.After the rain has stopped and sun shone mild, we decided to take the plunge. Protected by a shining helmet and glasses, the pilot behind me pushed a bit signaling me to run. At the edge of the gorge that plunged almost 2,000 meters, the glider flung open and in a snap of a finger I was “Up, up in the air!” The wind gushed past me. On my right was Mcleodganj. Since I had been there before I could make out from the sky, which building might be the parliament of the Tibetans in exile. Sitting on the harness of the glider with a huge backpack behind me that is supposed to work as airbag in case of a casualty I could see blue above and below. Now as we gained height, I could clearly see the Mcleodganj cricket stadium painted red. The matchbox-sized houses below made me feel like a “monarch of all I survey”. And a glimpse of white birds chirping and flying alongside made me feel this was the holiest experience I had ever gone through.After around minutes, my pilot insisted on descending. The landing calls for caution as untimely landing may send a cramp through the legs. Luckily we landed safely. The landing spot is far down from the takeoff place, though this is also a part of Indrunag. One can have a coffee to boost oneself and get into the car already waiting there.
