photo by Nicolas Chorier

Nicolas Chorier is a kite aerial photographer, and has worked in India for the last 15 years and has just released an app for iPads and other touchscreens devices, a selection of world heritage sites, spectacular landscapes, and most important : humans.

You’ll fly above the Taj Mahal, close to its dome, and cruise on the small boat, upstream the Ganga at Varanasi, the holliest city in the world. You’ll share a meal with a group of camels in Rajasthan, and fly above legendary palaces. You’ll imagine yourself at the Kumba Mela at Allahabad, the largest human gathering on earth. You will see the Kalari fighters on the beach, and their shadow even more, like no one did before, only the birds. You’ll visit Kerala and its enchanting beaches, discover Hampi and its rocks. And more.
Have a nice flight !
