A tandem flight is an introductory paragliding flight. As a passenger you need no prior knowledge, just come with us and experience the world from a new and exciting perspective. Once the Paraglider is inflated and safety checks are done we take a few steps down a slope until we step into the air. Go paragliding & see the world from above for yourself. Swoop & soar like Icarus... without fear. Your wings won't melt under the sun... HYA has hired the best pilots in Manali to ensure that you have a safe & pleasant tandem flight in secure hands. Our pilots, all members of the IPA (Indian Paragliding Association), have from 7 to 12 yrs flying experience. All the material used is imported & committee checked. The areas proposed have been selected for the exceptional landscape which they offer. Don't be surprised if eagles or other birds of prey accompany you on your flight...When

Himalaya, with its pristine mountains, rivers and forests is known as the “abode of the Gods”. It is therefore our responsibility to maintain the natural glory of these mountains and make it a place of endless delight for travelers and residents alike. A few easy to follow steps will help you to contribute in making this effort a success.
1) Plastic stays: It is one of the least degradable substances, resistant to the effects of the sun, wind and rain. When you leave a plastic bag or bottle in the quiet picnic spot that you and your family enjoyed, you may very well find it there when return a few years later, an ugly spot on the landscape. The State of Himachal Pradesh has banned the used of polythene/plastic bags and you can be fined for using them, while you are in the Sate.
2) Litter: Do remember to take your litter back to the hotel or dropt it in the conveniently placed dustbins. Don’t leave it lying around.
3) Noise: One of the prime attractions of Himalaya, is the quiet of the mountains that invite you to linger. Need we say….
- Please don’t blow your vehicle horn unnecessarily or play blaring loud music as you drive.
4) Vandalism: Nature intended trees and rocks to remain unmarked by human beings. Nor were our monuments intended for graffiti written by some young wit.
- Do not scratch your name or write message on trees, rocks, mountains or monuments.
5) Respect: Please treat the mountains and the people with respect and you will be pleasantly surprised at what both can give back to you.
Last, but not the least….. Enjoy yourself with responsibility.
Leave nothing, but Footprints……
