Paragliding- Pokhara

Paragliding also known as parapenting is a recreational and competitive flying sport. A para glider is a free-flying, foot-launched aircraft. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing, whose shape is formed by the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing. Here in Nepal, you can have this experience in Pokhara. It is quite safe and also budget friendly in some ways. It’s also closest thing you can experience to flying alongside those beautiful birds. As we take off from Sarangkot (1592 m), you feel the fresh air lushing through your face from the Himalayas, you also have an aerial view of Himalayas. 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. And don’t worry, that very person will also help you take a selfie in mid-air! And how cool is that! A car ride from Pokhara uphill is required to reach our destination i.e. Sarangkot. Here, we have a great view of the Phewa lake, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu.
