Paragliding ( Adventures )
The Paragliding takeoff site in Srinagar is located at an altitude of 7400 ft at Astanmarg Harwan on an extended ridge line which divides the valley winds. The sun facing slopes produce warm air updrafts and thermals all throughout the day which makes it possible to fly all day long from sunrise to sunset. The flight lands at Chandpora Harwan 2100 ft below the mountain . From the air you can see the Pir Panjal Range , the Zabarwan Range and get a glimpse inside the Dachigam National Park. The flight also offers splendid views of Srinagar City beside the Dal Lake and Mughal Gardens.The flying site can be reached by a motorable road, and is a 10 minute ride uphill from Harwan. The road head ends 350 mrs before the takeoff point at Astanmarg.
