Ü Nir­vana Ad­ven­tures Kamshet

Once you over­come the fear of jump­ing off the cliff, paraglid­ing is a fun ac­tiv­ity and with Fly Nir­vana and its re­sort, the Na­tive Place, only an hour's drive away, it’s a good op­tion for a quick ad­ven­ture-filled get­away. Don’t ex­pect any lux­ury here; the place is ba­sic and clean but buzzes with en­ergy with nu­mer­ous am­a­teurs, pro­fes­sional fly­ers and ad­ven­ture seek­ers dis­cussing their flight. If you’re a first-timer, go for tan­dem, where the pi­lot steers you in the right di­rec­tion as you glide over moun­tains and the scenic land­scape. The fly­ing starts only at 3 p.m. and winds up by sun­set with a break dur­ing the mon­soon. The own­ers Astrid and San­jay Rao are warm hosts who open up the space like you’re guests at their home, plan­ning bar­beque nights and gath­er­ings by the bon­fire. So, even if you don’t want to soar high in the skies, use the quiet time here to un­wind with a dig­i­tal detox.

Get­ting there Take the old high­way, pass Tale­gaon and Vadgaon to reach Kamshet and turn off the high­way onto the re­lief road
