Hang Gliding Himalayas

Hang gliding is an outdoor sport and that held in Dharamsala in The State of Himachal Pradesh.  Hang gliding is generally  performed by using air current without an engine power. The pilot is suspended in a swing harness from the centre of the keel and maintains control wholly by weight shift arrangement with the help of airframe. And Mother Nature is unpredictable weather is always a big consideration. The primary safety factors are personal judgment and attitude. You must be willing to learn gradually and use good Judgment and have an appropriate attitude. If you donít, then you can get injured or killed; if you do, then you can hang glide until youíre 90.
 To take off, the pilot runs on a down hill approximately 40-degree slope and is airborne the moment he crosses the gliders stalling speed, which vary from 15-km to 30-km per hour.  Soaring can be done by using ridge lifts created by wind striking the hill face or by hot air columns known as "thermals" that keep rising upward from the sun heated surface. One can fly as long as one wishes once he has acquired good experience.
