Paragliding at Kamshet
Next on our list is Kamshet. Kamshet is 102 km away from Mumbai. It is very famous for paragliding. Those who want to feel the sky and enjoy flying high should definitely experience paragliding at Kamshet. I was initially scared about seeing people screaming while flying. But when I experienced it myself, I surmised that the expression “on top of the sky” should be derived from this sort of experience.

Snorkeling or scuba diving activities are guided by professionals and they ensure that safety is the first preference at this place.
