Finally after 6 months got to finish writing about our first adventure activity in Bangalore.

Kids have come to their grandma home for vacation. They were tired of seeing the malls and parks every year. This year we decided to take them to something different. I came across this parasailing in cleartrip activities app. Booked it via clear trip easily and got the slot confirmed for saturday. Left Harsh and Aarush at home and we started of around 6 AM. Reached the venue within half hour as there was not much traffic. The weather was bit gloomy and we were worried if the ride will happen or not. The instructors came on time. They confirmed the weather was fine. The instructor and his assistants were very kind. We were bit scared of the adventure but their encouraging words helped a lot. Shilpi and I went first. They tied the harness to us and other end to the jeep. Then the jeep took off and so did we. The ride was an amazing one and it lasted just couple of minutes. I am sure it is not as great as the ones done in some hill stations and greater height but for the first timers it is a wonderful experience. It was a nice adventure activity in Bangalore. The parasailing activity is organised by many in and around Bangalore.

Few pics from the field.

Good adventure parasailing in Bangalore for the beginners.
