I have decided I will go to the Chamundi Hills for the skydiving adventure as it is pretty famous. I have gathered information that they also take care of all the safety precautions. I will have the options of selecting from Sky diving Tandem Jump and The Accelerated Freefall. In the tandem types one has to jump with the instructor as it is for beginners. The accelerated freefall is for those who have experience of skydiving and one need to go solo. I will love to go solo but will have to see how things work out.
