Places for Skydiving in India:
Skydiving in India is one of the most loved adventurous sport by many people. Before I list some of the top places for skydiving in India. I would like to define the types of skydiving so you can get a complete perception. As stated before, this sport includes many types like Tandem Jump – In which you and the instructor are connected by a harness. Accelerated Free Fall – which is quite difficult because you have to jump without any attachment and for a newbie, it could be a challenging experience. The static line jump – in this type you will be connected with a cord to the aircraft & the parachute, will open automatically after 3-4 seconds.
