Paragliding in Nepal is one of the adventurous sports to have great fun and experience the enjoyment of flying in the blue sky among the Himalayas. It is just a simple form of aviation with no mechanics required, only the power of thermal uplifts. With paragliding mankind’s oldest dream of free flying can be fulfilled and what better place to experience this sensation than in Nepal.
Paragliding in Nepal is undertaken soaring with wing tip to wing tip with the eagles flying over glistening lake below and spectacular Himalayan peaks on the background. A glider is a light non-motorized foot launched inflatable wing in which the person launches themselves into the sky from a gentle slope facing into the wind. There are no sudden drops or plunges or the sensation of falling, so a fear of heights is not normally a problem. Everybody who takes the plunge is surprised at how quiet and peaceful this experience is. It’s a sudden magical experience flying into the thin air among the clear blue skies. All of the paragliding flights are conducted with pilots who are fully trained and experienced with good Himalayan knowledge and the local weather conditions. All things are arranged in utmost safety so paragliding can be fully enjoyed at ease and without hesitation. The good times for paragliding is from September through June, though at times trips may get canceled due to unfavorable winds or bad weather conditions. The beautiful lakeside town of Pokhara is ideal place for paragliding and carried out from a Himalayan viewpoint called ‘Sarangkot’. Though up recently, paragliding flights are also operated in Kathmandu too.
