Soar for the skies
If heights bring out the adventurer in you, here's your chance to give it wings. Sign up for a paragliding session by Trikon in Kamshet where you can glide through the skies with an instructor. Even if you are a novice, you can give it a shot. While the pilot manoeuvres the glider, soak in the view over a 10-15-minute ride, and get an adrenaline rush.
