Depending on the wind, the flying can be anything from 15 minutes to an hour.


One can reach the flying point by climbing the 400 plus steps carved out of a rock. The organizers, apart from providing safe and thrilling ride, have made arrangements for shooting a good quality video so that you don't have to use either your camera or mobile. You just enjoy the flight, pay the charges and collect your video. After the flight of about 15-30 minutes (it all depends upon the wind conditions and speed) you will land at Kud, excited, enchanted, refreshed and roaring to go on the next trip.
