Paragliding festival in Sikkim



He may have retired from soccer, but the spirit of adventure still breathes heavy in former skipper, Bhaichung Bhutia who inaugurated the Sikkim paragliding festival by taking the first jump from the cliff to become first flyer in Gangtok. The Paragliding Association of India has made him a lifetime honorary member as well. For the locals, this paragliding festival was a tremendous tourist attraction. Taking time out of the ongoing I-League and his own team United Sikkim FC, Bhaichung tried the soaring heights on a glider with the assistance of a trainer.
