A Kashmir Adventure
Hang Gliding and Hot Air Ballooning

The ladakh challenge: ideal hang gliding terrain

Though some trials for hang gliding have been held in the valley, the sport still continues to be rare. The location of a flat valley surrounded by high moun-tains is an ideal terrain for hang-gliding. Higher up, the meadows at the foot of mountains such as Yus-marg, Gulmarg and Sonamarg are idyllic spots to try hang-gliding. Hot air ballooning along the valleys of Suru and Zanskar can prove very challenging.
