The beauty of paragliding in a Himalayan country is incomparable. Nepals unique geography consists of mountains, hills, rivers, lush greenery and much more which adds to a unique paragliding experience. Paragliding is a relatively new adventure sport in Nepal, yet enthusiasts have promoted the sport well beyond imagination. Unparalleled scenic magnificence of Mountain View, Himalayan griffin vultures, eagles, kites can be viewed while floating over villages, monasteries, temples, lakes and jungles, with a fantastic view of the majestic Himalayas.
The main area for flying by paragliding in Nepal is the Annapurna region, more specifically the Pokhara valley. This lakeside town is nestled at the foot of the Annapurna Himal. The paragliding season in Nepal commences from November through February, the best months being November and December. The take -off point for these paragliding flights are Sarankot (1592m.) which also offers prime views of Phewa Lake and mountains at sunrise and sunset and the landing is by the Phewa Lake. No previous experience is required as qualified pilots provide a short briefing before launching paragliding trip.
