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.
