Tanya Agarwal: Kamshet is a place to visit again again once in every season you'll feel good. Try to trek at paragliding point or do paragliding. Rates of Paragliding is 3000 when I was there. And try to glide alone after training not with trainer because you will get less time about 15 min. Nice play to enjoy. Kamshet is about 80 km from Pune.

Arunabh Dutta Roy : Kamshet is ideal for those who just want to get disconnected from life.There are a couple of hotels that cater to paragliders who flock to kamshet. There is not much to do here other than wading and swimming in the reservoir. Of course, you can read while swinging on a hammock under the shade of a tree and catch your 40 winks.

The best paragliding experience there is!

Wonderful experience of Paragliding!

Kamshet is a destination just before Lonawala while travelling from Pune. It is most famous for the adventurous paragliding. We headed for Kamshet on a weekend, Saturday to be more specific, and reached there in hope of getting a chance for paragliding. But it seemed that it needed a pre booking and none of the schools were ready to admit us on the spot. It felt like the trip was going to be in vain, but thanks to the supporting crew of Temple Pilots, we finally got a chance to live an experience worth never forgetting. If you are going with your own vehicle, you have to reach the destination of paragliding by yourself else you are taken by the school itself to the destination. You just have to reach Kamshet. Since there are two to three paragliding spots, we took off at Shelar point which is just above the Pavna dam . Immediately after you reach the spot you are mesmerized by the scenic view here. Blue water, chill air and the tandems flying all over the sky . We were welcomed by the crew and they talked politely asking and inquiring about us and obviously encouraging us to have fun and learn paragliding to the higher level . Well, I was the first one to go. At first I was nervous as this was the first time I ever was going to be in air. It started off slowly, the guy with me constantly trying to calm me down. For first a minute or so I didn't even open my eyes. But once I felt comfortable, I started enjoying the ride and from above I could see the tops of the mountains and the blue water of Pavana dam. Once we stabilized into the air, the pilot started to do 360 degree rotations in the air at which my heart stopped for a while and I felt like my stomach was empty. But that wasn't all. We came down rapidly and almost kicked our friends standing on the mountain top and that felt just awesome . Those twenty minutes were the best moments of my life considering the fun I had . Surely an experience worth the price . While coming back, we were so tired that we had to have our dinner on the way and it was Tonny da Dhaba that we chose. Though a bit costly the Dhaba is surely a place to visit just to have a look at the type of birds they are feeding in their hotel . Just made my day !!!

Kamshet Overview

Kamshet is a sleepy village in the state of Maharashtra. Situated in the Western Ghats, Kamshet is a major paragliding destination in India. Known as the 'para-glider's paradise', Kamshet lies close to the twin hill stations of Khandala and Lonavla, on the Mumbai-Pune Highway, at an altitude of about 2200 feet above sea level.
Kamshet was a prominent trade-route of the ancient times, which once linked the west coast with the main land. The cultural heritage of the region is evident from the ancient Buddhist cave temples and hill fortresses found in the region, which can be dated back to the medieval period. The sculptures and images of Buddha and other intricate carvings in these ancient temples denote the artistic and architectural excellence of the region.

Though Kamshet holds an important place in the tourism map of Maharashtra, the place is known for its rustic nature. The region of Kamshet comprises of several small villages with traditional styled houses that are built using thatches, mud and reeds.

The proximity of Kamshet to the popular hill stations of Khandala and Lonavla also attract lots of tourists. Apart from paragliding, Kamshet is a favorite spot for joy rides, tandem flights and cross country flights. Some of the major paragliding sites in Kamshet are Pavana Lake, Shinde Wadi Hills, Shelar, Golden Glades Fields, etc.

Kamshet has become a popular weekend getaway from Mumbai. The lush greenery, serene and rippling water bodies and hilly terrains of the region add to its popularity. Bhandar Dongar, Karla, Bhaja and Bhedsa Caves, Kondeshwar Temple, etc. are some of the popular sites at Kamshet. Trekking the hilly terrains, bird watching on locations such as Vadivali Lake, etc. are some other popular activities in Kamshet.
