''The flying yogi' of Kamshet belongs to the Himalayan country of Nepal. He has been practicing paragliding for more than ten years. Yogi’s devotion to paragliding is noticeably seen in his dynamic flying and the effort taken by him to help others learn the sport.

When it comes to first flights, Yogi’s presence on the take-off itself is the greatest assurance for a student pilot.

Yogi is one of the best Tandem Paragliding Pilot in the country and has more than thousand tandem flights (and counting...) under his belt.
