The Paragliding takeoff site in Srinagar is located at an altitude of 7400 ft at Astanmarg Harwan on an extended ridge line which divides the valley winds. The sun facing slopes produce warm air updrafts and thermals all throughout the day which makes it possible to fly all day long from sunrise to sunset. The flight lands at Chandpora Harwan 2100 ft below the mountain . From the air you can see the Pir Panjal Range , the Zabarwan Range and get a glimpse inside the Dachigam National Park. The flight also offers splendid views of Srinagar City beside the Dal Lake and Mughal Gardens. The flying site can be reached by a motorable road, and is a 10 minute ride uphill from Harwan. The road head ends 350 mrs before the takeoff point at Astanmarg.
The trekking season in Jammu & Kashmir extends from June through September. Trek in Kashmir does not mean just walking over forested mountains as it combines nature and the local culture. As the trekker climb higher the landscape changes. Chinar and poplar trees are replaced by fir, pine and oak and finally Birch trees, the alpine meadows and a profusion of colorful wildflowers. The simple villagers in the plains with their fruit orchards and paddy fields are replaced by migrant families of Nomads / Gujjars, herdsmen who cross the high mountain passes with their cattle in search of greener pastures. The main areas of attraction for the trekker in Kashmir are the Sindh & Lidder valleys which support a number of high altitude meadows. The townships of Sonamarg and Pahalgam are the main trekking heads, both for short hikes and longer treks in the Himalayas. Because Kashmiri culture is as unique as the Himalayan landscapes, we recommend trekkers spend a full day in Srinagar before starting your trek. You can venture out on a Srinagar tour featuring highlights of the old city as well as the Mughal Gardens.
