Paragliding is one of the adventure sports that Bhimtal is the most famous for. Gliding over the alpine mountains of the lower Himalayan range can be a heartwarming experience. While most people head to Bir-Billing in Himachal to experience the sport of paragliding, Bhimtal might be a better choice nowadays because of the low tourist crowd in the areas of Bhimtal and Naukuchiatal.
Located at a height of 1370 meters, Bhimtal has ample height to take a flight and large fields to land. Flying at such immense heights over the Kumaon hills with colorful birds flying in the air along with you, and butterflies surrounding you is a beautiful experience to behold.
