The basic thing to do the paragliding is clear weather and good amount of thermals. Mostly, people who have a hustling day, do the early morning paragliding. Unfortunately, that just lasts for nearly 20 min due to less amount of thermals as the ground doesn’t get to heat properly. So, the best time is, the pre-mid-day which is at 11 am. The perfect combination of a sunny day and more thermal will make your flight memorable for the lifetime. So, we suggest you do the paragliding at 11 am, as the view gets even clearer.
