Paragliding in Kamshet

Kamshet

Up there…there is No beginning. No ending.
Neither Tomorrow. Nor yesterday!
– Avi Malik

Location

Kamshet (The original name “Karmakshetra” which means the land of your karma) is a small township located on the old Mumbai – Pune highway (NH-4). The hills along this route are dotted with ancient cave temples of the Buddhist monks, medieval hill fortresses of the brave warriors and colonial hill stations that often double up as flying sites. Kamshet is 110 kilometres from Mumbai city & 45 Kms from Pune, the town more famous for OSHO-(the renowned spiritual maestro) and the Rajneesh Ashram. The new expressway between the two cities makes transportation very convenient.

Topography

Kamshet, as was the intent of its discovery, is the top destination for learning to fly. The Sahyadri range is very friendly in terms of its topography, there are easy takeoffs at most flying sites in the region. The hills are not very high and offer large and ample landing areas very important for beginners and novice pilots. We have several training and advance level flying sites in the area around Kamshet. Most are within a radius of 10 km’s and easily accessible. Few are privately owned and need permissions (which we have) and others are free for all.

Weather

The weather is so reliable that we can run courses regularly and club pilots can be confident of flying on all of their weekend outings. One can enjoy both pure ridge and dynamic flying here. One can develop great strong wind flying and ground handling skills as the wind is 20+kmph on average. Both the easterlies from October to February and westerlies from March to June make for both smooth and dynamic flying conditions.
