At the base of Chamundi betta (hill), skydiving camps are organised regularly in the city. Adventurers can try tandem or static jumps or choose an accelerated freefall. Tandem jumps are done with an instructor, who will accompany you on the way down and open the parachute for you, while the latter is performed alone. You are taken to a height of about 10,000 ft, and then asked to take the leap from a helicopter. Once you sign up, you have to undergo rigorous training to ensure that you are physically and mentally able to perform the jump. The training usually takes place over two days, with mock drills and other simulated scenarios conducted beforehand. It is a must-try experience when in Mysuru.
