Paragliding in Nepal can be a truly wonderful and fulfilling experience for the adventure seeking. Experience unparalleled scenic grandeur as you share airspace with Himalayan griffin vultures, eagles, kites and float over villages, monasteries, temples, lakes and jungle, with fantastic view of the majestic Himalaya.
There are various deals for the paragliding enthusiast as well as those checking this sport out of the first time. There is a three-day introductory course for beginners, as well as tandem flights ( where you fly with an instructor) for the inexperienced or less brave. At 6000 feet you sit back in your own seat as your qualified pilot takes you on an unforgettable journey. The Take off point for this flight is Sarangkot , which also offer prime views of Phewa tal and the mountains at sunrise and sunset and landing by the lake.
From Sarangkot (1500m) to Pokhara (800m), a first flight experience. Feel the sensation of flying in thermal conditions, (rising more than 500 m from the take-off point), from there we fly cross-country with the birds, over the local countryside you will see the rice fields, traditional villages and the people working in the fields, before we fly over the lake, offering the chance to do a little acrobatic flying (if you want to!), before landing beside the lakesid.
First time? No worries, experience is not required! Tandem flying is when a certified pilot flies with a passenger. Both pilot and passenger sit in harnesses that are attached to each other and the wing. A paragliding harness is designed for safety and comfort, and is like sitting in a comfy chair. After an easy take-off, the passenger sits back and relaxes…enjoying the epic scenery and breathing the mountain air.
Bring with you strong shoes, and a windproof jacket. A calm scenic float, or an acrobatic tumbling routine, your choice…just tell the pilot your preference.
