Sachin Pathare is a 33-year-old professional paragliding coach, having fallen in love with this adrenaline-fuelled discipline several years ago. In fact, he abandoned a successful software engineering career for the sport. His favourite paragliding spots are Bir, part of the Kangra district in the north Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, and Kamshet. It was here that Sachin came in a ŠKODA KAROQ to make the video.
“Life in Mumbai can be tough. Traffic, pollution and endless crowds of people. Sometimes you need to get away from it all and have a break. When I am in the mountains, I am at peace – I like climbing to the best launch site, and enjoying feeling the wind wash over me,” says Sachin as he explains his passion for paragliding. “I decided to follow my dream and devoted more and more time to paragliding, practically squeezing out all other activities. There came a point where I realised that I would be able to make a living as an instructor.
