In Nepal, paragliding is an amateur and professional adventure sport that involves flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits or lies supine in a cocoon-like 'pod' suspended beneath a fabric wing.

To experience life in the air, a paragliding tour in Pokhara is a much-recommended adventure sport in Nepal. It is one of the youngest sporting events in the country started in 2007 in Pokhara Lakeside. Experience of Paraglide gives you the sense of free-flying at the best cost and time. The views of surrounding mountains from the sky, green forests, white clouds, and blue lakes will discover a contented individual in you.

Sarangkot in Pokhara is the paragliding destination from where the flight takes off. The spot is 1,592m from sea level. In this flight of 30-40 minutes, you will share the sky with vultures, eagles, and kites. It is an ecstatic feeling to see villages, temples, and lakes from the sky. Moreover, you will enjoy a series of towering mountains namely Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), Lamjung Himal, Annapurna, and Himchuli. Finally, you safely land in Lakeside. Moreover, we also offer flights to Bandipur which is a Newar town located between Kathmandu and Pokhara. Here, you can stop and enjoy the beauty of nature, temples, caves, art, culture, and architecture.

Tandem Flights in Nepal, Pokhara (Sarangkot Hill)

Tandem flight is a flying adventure that involves a pilot flying with a passenger. Both pilot and passenger have their own harnesses that are attached to each other and the wing. Paragliding harnesses are made up for the comfort and safety of the adventurers which are attached to the seat that feels more like an armchair. After take-off, the passenger just sits back and enjoys the beautiful views of the Himalayas, rivers, lakes, and landscape. Pictures and video capture can also be done which is not a problem as well. It is very portable that it can be taken anywhere and can fly from any of the mountains. Taking this type of flight with Nepal Trek Adventure will be more beneficial for you as it provides a reasonable offer with two types of flights.

Paragliding Tour Type 01- Cloud Buster

In this type of flight, we take off from Sarangkot and fly above the valley receiving the breathtaking view of ridges of trees, beautiful villages, and also people shouting from below looking at you with wonder as you are the Birdman flying and circling over them. We return back from the flight gliding over the lake and return back to our main office in Lakeside via jeep. 

Paragliding Tour Type 02- Cross Country

This flight allows you to get an adventurous experience of the exploration side of flying. Each day is a different day so routes can be changed accordingly and provide a slightly different conditions. There is the possibility of flying along the long ridge leading down the valley past Fewa Lake, prostate with the Annapurna range to your right. On other days we cross the valley and soar directly at these stunning 6,000 m + peaks. We will return to land near the lake where transport will be waiting to take us back to our office in Lakeside.

    Arial Paragliding Experience

    A friend of mine recommended contacting Nepal Trek Adventure because I wanted to do some adventure in Nepal. Till now I was roaming alone in Kathmandu valley. I never trusted unknown companies but then I decided to trust my friend's suggestion. Then I contacted the manager and told him everything. The manger was too friendly that he immediately picked me from the place and take to the office where we discussed the adventure trip. He immediately helped me out for the trip understanding and booking. The next day we reached our destination, Pokhara and waited for a few minutes. Then I got in the Paragliding flight. They got me roped and tighten my belts and let me to the air. I completed this paragliding flight so effortlessly. The whole flight was exceptional. We flew with birds, breezes and the clouds. We saw people beneath us and shouted 'hello' a lot with excitement. From the top, the overall view of the mountains, clouds, green forests, etc was eye-catching. I am truly satisfied with the NTA team and their arrangements, not only the glide but also for hotels, food, guide and so on. They are an outstanding company and their hospitality will make you want to contact again and again. Everything about them is perfect. They will organize everything as per your need you don’t have to worry about a single thing. Thank you NTA, I will surely recommend others to join your team.

    Memorable Gliding Experience in Pokhara

    I and my friend heard a lot about paragliding in Nepal. So we decided to do it with the help of Nepal Trek Adventure so contacted them and informed them about it the day before the ride. They had always been like family to us. We have done a lot of journeys together so we prefer Nepal trek adventure than other traveling companies. They are very comforting and cooperative. They have always done their work perfectly. Anyways, after contacting them, the next day we headed toward our destination i.e. Pokhara. They had already booked the hotels, food, and overall necessities for us, even in the busy schedule. They never get tired to amaze us. After reaching there, the instructor gave us some information and we got in the glide. We accomplished the trip so smoothly and incredibly. The view from the top was stunning. We saw mountains, green forests, and the white cloud. It made us feel like we were in a different world. You will be able to share air space with eagle, crows, kites, and clouds. Trusts me, Paragliding will make you feel like a free bird. Thank you, Nepal Trek Adventure for everything that you did for us.  You have always supported us for everything and comforted us in every journey. You truly are a blessing. I highly recommend others to contact NTA for their trip. Hats off!
