Paragliding


image
Paragliding is a relatively new adventure sport in Nepal, and little information is available in tourist guidebooks. Paragliding in this Himalayan country can be a truly wonderful and fulfilling experience for the adventure-seekers. You can experience unparalleled scenic grandeur as you share airspace with Himalayan griffin vultures, eagles, kites, while floating over villages, monasteries, temples, lakes and jungles, with a fantastic view of the majestic Himalayas.

Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying Paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure.[1] The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing comprising a large number of interconnected baffled cells. Wing shape is maintained by the suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing, and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside.

Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometers, though flights of one to two hours and covering some tens of kilometers are more the norm. By skillful exploitation of sources of lift, the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand meters.

There are many most experienced paragliding company in Nepal, we always send our costumer on believable company unrivalled views of three 8,000m peaks and friendly and constant conditions for paragliding. The main area for paragliding is Sarangkot in the Pokhara valley, a site which offers spectacular. There are many types of paragliding. Costumer always can have choice of type.   

Tandem Flight

Tandem flying involves a pilot flying with a passenger. Both of them have separate harnesses that are attached to each other and the wing. Paragliding harnesses are built for comfort and safety; they feel more like an armchair.

After take-off the passenger just sits back, relaxes and takes in the epic scenery. Even taking pictures is not a problem. Para gliders can foot launch and gently foot land again and are very portable. We can take them anywhere and fly from most mountains in Nepal. 

Annapurna Panorama Flights

We take a 20 min jeep ride from Pokhara uphill to Sarangkot viewpoint 2000ft above Lakeside. This is where we begin the unforgettable adventure. From here we can see three of the highest mountains in the world. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Manaslu (all over 8000m). We offer 3 types of tandem flights from here. 

Cloud Buster

We take off from Sarangkot and thermal above the valley, sour along pristine ridges of trees, over villages and often hear shouts from below as people stare with wonder at these bird-men circling above them. We end the flight with a glide over the lake, and return via jeep to our main office in Lakeside.

Duration: 20-30 Min. 

Cross Country

This flight allows you to get a taste of the exploration side of flying. Each day provides slightly different conditions, and even throughout the day it is changing, so routes change accordingly. There is the possibility of soaring along the long ridge leading down the valley past Fewa Lake, with the Annapurna range to your right. Other days we cross the valley and soar directly at these stunning 6,000 m + peaks. We will return and land near the lake where a jeep will be waiting to take us back to our office in Lakeside.

Duration: 45-60 Min

Acrobatic Flying

The biggest shot of adrenaline in the Himalayas! See what our world class acro pilots can do with a wing as you loop, spin and spiral through the air. Performing maneuvers called "Helicopter", "SAT", "Back-fly", "Tumble" and "Wingover". This flight will leave you breathless yet and an amazing experience of  a lifetime.

Duration: 10-20 Min. 

Tandem Odyssey Flight

In our ongoing efforts to update ourselves and offer new opportunities for those hoping to taste free flight we developed the Odyssey flight.  This flight is a chance to get a taste of what we offer experienced pilots on our Flying tours, only with this flight all you have to do is sit back, relax, and let our experienced pilots take your for an adventure of a lifetime. We have a variety of options depending on what you are looking for. One option is hiking for a day to Galem (a remote take-ofx

t 3,500 m) where the views of the iconic Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) mountain are impossible to beat. You feel as though you could reach out and touch it. Here we would stay the night and provide porters, food and camping equipment, and fly back to Lakeside the following morning.  Another is an overnight at Sirkot, a traditional Gurung village surrounded by beautiful forests, waterfalls, and a privileged glimpse into the “Real Nepal” that has remained seemingly untouched by time. This is a newer option that we are still developing, and will update with more options as they come up. As always, if you have any other questions feel free to contact us via email, and we will be happy to answer any and all questions
