Paragliding in Nepal
Paragliding in this Himalayan country can be a truly wonderful and fulfilling experience for the adventure-seekers. Pokhara, Lake Side in Nepal offers one of the most fantastic places in the world to international Paragliders. People come from all over the world to take advantage of the ideal jump off spots at Sarangkot at 1425m. From there you can catch a thermal and fly around the lake enjoy the view of Machapuchre Fish Tall mountain. Fewa Lake below offers a safety net, with many landing spots to choose.
We take a 20 minutes jeep ride from Pokhara uphill to Sarangkot viewpoint 2000ft above Lakeside. This is where we begin the unforgettable adventure. From here we can see three of the highest mountains in the world. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Manaslu (all over 8000m). We offer 2 types of tandem flights from here.
meaning of Tandem Flight
Tandem flying involves a pilot flying with a passenger. Both of them 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.
After take-off the passenger just sits back, relaxes and takes in the epic scenery. Even taking pictures is not a problem. Paragliders can foot launch and gently foot land again and are very portable. We can take them anywhere and fly from most mountains in Nepal.
We take off from Sarangkot and thermal above the valley, sour along pristine ridges of trees, over villages and often hear shouts from below as people stare with wonder at these bird-men circling above them. We end the flight with a glide over the lake, and return via jeep to our main office in Lakeside.

This flight allows you to get a taste of the exploration side of flying. Each day provides slightly different conditions, and even throughout the day it is changing, so routes change accordingly. There is the possibility of soaring along the long ridge leading down the valley past fewa Lake, with the Annapurna range to your right. Other days we cross the valley and soar directly at these stunning 6,000 m peaks. We will return and land near the lake where a jeep will be waiting to take us back to our office in Lakeside.
