Paragliding is Life

2 Days

Paragliding is relatively new in Nepal and is incredibly popular. It is a unique experience allowing you to dive directly into breathtaking views, natural beauty and breathtaking with the majestic Himalayan mountain range. No previous experience is necessary. You just have to have a taste for adventure!

Professional pilots give you a briefing on the flight, weather conditions, equipment, risk management, and other related topics before embarking on this exciting journey.

  • The take-off point is Sarangkot (1592 m), not very far from Pokhara and offers a breathtaking view of Lake Phewa as well as three peaks of 8000 meters: Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Manaslu.
  • Walking along the lake, each time for a long time we looked at the incredible amount of paragliders soaring in the sky, and on the last day, we finally decided to fly.
  • Ganesha, the nephew of our host Barat, had some acquaintances in the agency, and they arranged a flight for us even with a small discount.

On Lakeside we plunged into the car

Your instructors will be there with paragliders in backpacks. Both instructors turned out to be Europeans, one Austrian and the second Swede. They spend summer in their mountains and come to Nepal for the winter – of course, there is less money here, but there is the opportunity to fly all year round.

They spend summer in their mountains and come to Nepal for the winter – of course, there is less money here, but there is the opportunity to fly all year round.

Climbed to the top of the mountain, the instructors and their assistants laid out the paragliders, fastened us to them and to their belts, so that the instructor was at the back, conducted a short briefing on how to behave during take-off and how to land.

Five minutes before the start, combat readiness, the domes are straightened, but the knees are still shaking slightly

The fun part is, of course, take off. In the harness with the instructor, we stand 20 meters from the cliff, the paraglider’s dome lies on the ground behind and we need to run towards the abyss – it seems that we’ll have to jump into it now, but a few meters to the edge the canopy straightens out – and now we are flying

Those who wish to fly, more than enough

  • This mountain from the side shot already in flight.
  • The feeling of flying was less exciting than it seemed from the ground – it wasn’t breathtaking, it wasn’t a long parachute jump from 4000 meters.
  • Surely managing a paraglider is much more interesting than being a passive passenger, but at the same time, soaring in the sky is an indescribable delight.

And doubly beautiful, when under the feet of a beautiful lake,
