About Paragliding In Nepal
Nepal forms a rectangle on the southern slopes of the Himalaya and is without exception, the most stunning country is imaginable. The main area for paragliding in Nepal is Kathmandu valley, Pokhara and many other destinations with commanding views of 3 of the world's 8000m peaks with friendly and constant conditions for your paragliding holiday.
Tandem flying involves a pilot flying with a passenger. Both have separate harnesses that are attached to each other and the wing. Paragliding harnesses are built for comfort and safety, they feel more like an armchair. Once launched the passenger just sits back, relaxes, and takes in the epic scenery. Even taking pictures is not a problem. Due to the portable nature and easy launch characteristics of a paraglider (they fit into a rucksack) We can take them anywhere and fly them from most mountains in Nepal.
We take a 20 min jeep ride from Pokhara to Sarangkot the viewpoint 2000ft above Lakeside. From here we can see 3 of the highest mountains in the world. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu, all over 8000 m. We offer 3 types of tandem flights from here.
Phewa Tal View:
In the morning and late afternoon, these 15min flights give you a taste of unpowered flight, taking you over Pokhara lake and then landing by a Lakeside bar.
This midday flight gives you the thrill of high flight as we thermal up above Sarangkot in the company of eagles and vultures, 30min – 1 hour. We land by the lake.
This offers you the chance to experience flying from one valley to another. Using thermals, clouds, and birds to guide us, we take you on an unforgettable journey north of Pokhara towards the big mountains. We fly as long as we can and aim to return to Pokhara that afternoon.
