Adventure activities can be exhilarating and aren’t for everyone. Paragliding too is a popular experience but is not everyone’s cup of tea. Back in 2019, a man named Vipin Sahu decided to paraglide and went viral after uploading a hilarious video of his experience. Two years later, another footage of an amateur’s stint with the adventure sport has taken over the internet. A travel agency posted the video captured on GoPro wherein the unidentified woman can be seen thoroughly frightened while paragliding.
The miserably failed attempt has been shot in Himachal Pradesh’s Khajjiar town. She clearly has a mind-blowing experience as she cries mid-air floating amid the picturesque town. So freaked was she that she refrained from opening her eyes for the ride. She forgot to enjoy the scenic view and urged the tandem pilot to descend.
The recording opens to the woman preparing for the adventurous ride, but the moment it starts she can be heard screaming out loud. As she cries in fear, the guide asks her to take a long breath and lean back towards him. Paying no attention to his advice, the woman keeps requesting him to bring her to ground soon. She keeps her eyes shut throughout the ride and tells him “My hands and legs are shaking, if you want I’ll pay you Rs 1000, but please stop the ride soon.” While the pilot-instructor tries to calm her down, she says, “I’ll not open my eyes, I’ll fall off if I do so”. As the pilot tried to change direction to land, the woman screamed once again saying, “Go slow”.
The video has been shared on Instagram by a user named Incredible_Himalya. Since posted, the video has been widely circulated across various social media platforms. It is captioned as, “Another legendary Paragliding Video from Khajjiar! She is Didi of that Land Karade Guy, it seems.” The internet had a great laugh over the viral video and shared funny emoticons in the comments section. Many social media users said they could relate to her fears and expressed they might react the same if they are in the same situation.
This video reminded netizens of Vipin Sahu, who became an internet sensation overnight after his paragliding clip went viral. His miserable attempt to paraglide, shot on July 8, 2019, in Manali, showed him begging to the guide saying, ‘Land kara de’. In January, this year, he decided to face his fears and once again took an attempt. He posted the video on his Youtube channel and looked calm while paragliding. He even had cutting chai mid-air with his guide.
