DEHRADUN : Matogi village, around 50 km from Dehradun city is emerging as a favorite spot for adventure and thrill seekers in paragliding. Since the past few weeks, the Paragliding Association of Uttarakhand (PAU) has been conducting paragliding sessions for tourists as well as training courses for enthusiasts here. Dehradun, which people have been looking up as stopover to move to other tourism destination as it has nothing to offer on its own has now one such destination for aero sports.
Shankar Singh, secretary of Paragliding Association of Uttarkhand said, “This place is ideally suited for paragliding. The forest and river in the vicinity provide the right climate with moisture in the air. The site also gives full glimpse of Himalayan range as well as Shivalik hills .”
