Nirvana Paragliding Pilot Diaries – Michael Prichard’s 50th


Michael Prichard Paragliding at Kamshet

It was Michael Prichard’s 50th birthday in March and he chose to celebrate with friends and family at Native Place & Nirvana Adventures, Kamshet, his favourite flying holiday destinations. This way he could share his special place with friends and family and commemorate 20 Years of Nirvana Adventures as well. This made us feel honoured & happy.

So come March a group of 11 people descended at Native Place from the Far East and the UK some of them friends had accompanied him on previous paragliding holidays and some who had not been here before. His dad, brother and 16 year old nephew came too.

Paragliding courses, joyrides, free flying, gatherings on the roof under the stars at night, yoga with Ivan Stanley in the mornings (and evenings too for those not flying) dips in the lake, folk drumming band, BBQ’s and lots of fun and laughter were the order of the week.

As his girlfriend Pat Shuen shared with us – it was a blessing to spend a unforgettable week with family and friends. A very unique place in a beautiful corner of India.

Thank you all. I am so grateful I had this wonderful week with you all

Michael Prichard learnt to fly with Nirvana Adventures way back in 2001 and has been a frequent flyer with us here at Kamshet over the years. Being based in Hong Kong, Kamshet was just a flight and a taxi ride away.
