Paragliding in Pokhara

Paragliding in Nepal is one of the recreational and adventurous activities that brings you with the thrill to be up in the sky like a bird. Paragliding is also known as parapenting is a recreational and competitive flying sport. The paraglider is a free-flying, foot-launched aircraft. The pilot sits in a harness suspended underneath a texture wing, whose shape is framed by the weight of air entering vents in the front of the wing.

Here, Paragliding can be done in Kathmandu and Pokhara. Paragliding in Nepal is quite safe and also budget-friendly in some ways. It's also the closest thing you can experience flying alongside those beautiful birds. In Pokhara, you can do paragliding in Sarangkot. AS you take off from Sarangkot(1,592 m), you feel the fresh air rushing through your face from the Himalayas, you also have an aerial view of Himalayas.

Paragliding in Nepal is the lifetime experience for everyone guided by the experienced pilot. You can also fly solo or tandem. You can also get an international license here in Nepal. You don't have to bring your own equipment if you don't have one. Here you can hire them if you want to fly on your own.

Besides the thrill and the adventure of flying, you pass through a village, monastery, lakes, temples, etc. Needless to say, a fully experienced and professional pilot as mentioned earlier will be alongside you guiding and helping throughout! The city promotes two major hilltops as viewpoints to see the city and surroundings. A car ride from Pokhara uphill is required to reach our destination i.e Sarangkot. Here we have a great view of Phewa lake, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu.
