Trip Highlights

Paragliding in Pokhara is one of the most popular sports activities in Nepal. Pokhara, the beautiful valley 200 km west of Kathmandu, is a perfect destination for paragliding. The paragliding in Pokhara offers you to experience unmatched attractive grandeur as you share airspace with Himalayan griffin, vultures, eagles, and kites while floating over villages, monasteries, temples, lakes, and jungles with a fantastic view of the majestic Mount Fishtail, Annapurna, and Dhaulagiri Himalayan range.

The main area for flying in Nepal is the Annapurna region, more specifically the Pokhara valley. This lakeside town is Nepal’s second “city”, nestled at the foot of the Annapurna Himal, the views commanded from here, of 3 of the world’s 8000m peaks, are unsurpassed. At an altitude of 800m ASL, the subtropical climate means that year-round, it is short and T-shirt weather. The micro-climate of the valley makes it an ideal area for flying, with far more constant conditions than the Kathmandu valley 150 km east.

It is the monsoonal climate that makes Nepal such a great place to fly. The high rainfall in the summer and the latitude of the country means that the tree line is at an incredible 3900m. With a subtropical climate, there are no prevailing or valley winds, it is pure thermic flying, milder than late summer alpine conditions. Once the monsoon has left the conditions are seriously constant. Looking down on centuries of engineering Launching from Annapurna Base Camp

Duration

20 to 30 minutes only

 

Location and activity

 

Paragliding in Pokhara will be just a 20 min jeep ride from Pokhara uphill to Sarangkot viewpoint 2000ft above Lakeside. From here we will start the adventure where you can see three of the highest mountains in the world. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Manaslu (all over 8000m).

 

3 types of tandem flights are available which have separate harnesses that are attached to the wing. Paragliding harnesses are built for comfort and safety and also feel more like an armchair.

After take-off the passenger just sits back, pharm 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. Finally, our landing point will be the lakeside Khahare in Pamey Road thus, ending our Paragliding Pokhara Tour.
