Himalayan Loop has hired the best pilots in Manali to ensure that you have a safe & pleasant tandem flight in secure hands. Our pilots, all members of the IPA (Indian Paragliding Association), have from 7 to 12 yrs flying experience. All the material used is imported & committee checked. The areas proposed have been selected for the exceptional landscape which they offer. For habitual par gliders we also plan excursions in the Kangra valley, to Bir , where many international competitions are held. Don’t be surprised if eagles or other birds of prey accompany you on your flight…

When ?

Northern India benefits from a sunny dry climate favorable for paragliding nearly all year round. However November to march is normally reserved for winter sports. During the monsoon from mid July to the end of august occasional showers may break up the day affecting flying conditions.
