Jadhav is a computer science engineer and an adventure trekker.

It was an arranged marriage. Reshma convinced herself to try the adventure marriage.

Jadhav’s friends from his trekking group came out with the idea of marriage in the air.

“I wanted to do something different. Our great Shivaji Maharaj had passed through this valley and we agreed to marry here”, Jadhav said.

Reshma added, “Initially I was afraid but love was in the air and I agreed for the marriage while hanging”.

Jadhav’s friends from the Malay Adventure, Hill Riders group and Western mountain group made all the arrangements for the marriage. About 2,500 feet of rope was used to create the ropeway.
