There is no assurance, despite some businesses' claims to the contrary. Therefore, it is important to pick a reliable business that will guarantee and provide insurance. Additionally, one must make sure they adhere to all of the pilot's directions and correctly tighten the harnesses and belts. Additionally, it's critical to maintain composure because panicking might worsen the situation. Give the pilot authority in any scenario because you can trust them to know what to do.

    Paragliding in Pokhara Best Time, Season, Months

    As long as it isn't raining and the thermals are steady, one may go paragliding in Pokhara at any time of the year. Peak paragliding season in Pokhara falls between September and November and March and May, which is also the Nepali tourist season. Even though this is the typical paragliding season, if one can catch clear skies in July and August, when it monsoons, it would be the ideal time to go paragliding since the foliage is lush and the rivers are thundering from the rainfall. Some of the nicest vistas that are available when paragliding are rendered by this. However, before paragliding at any time of the year, especially during the monsoon season, one must make sure that there is no rain indicated in the weather forecast. The majority of businesses provide three flights each day, at 10:30 AM, 12:00 PM, and 2:00 PM. The greatest time to go paragliding would be around 11:30 AM when the sun has been out for a while and the weather is ideal, providing you the best value for your money.

    Paragliding in Pokhara Difficulty Level

    The activity of paragliding is simple and fantastic for those who enjoy the adventure. Numerous tourists are drawn to the area every year by its breathtaking mountain scenery and awe-inspiring ambiance. If there is a rapid shift in the wind, the risk is greatest during takeoff and landing. Even if the possibility of this happening is quite minor, choosing a firm with a solid reputation and business insurance might help you feel more at peace. If you are a beginner and not a certified trained paraglider, a tandem flight completes your paragliding experience. Tandem flight refers to a flight with another person who is a qualified and certified paragliding pilot and who will help you accomplish your journey.

    Paragliding in Pokhara Travel Insurance

    Anyone who plans to partake in paragliding must get paragliding travel insurance. Risky sports like paragliding in Pokhara are typically not covered by travel insurance policies. Consequently, it is crucial to have a travel insurance policy that will cover such actions. For various athletic activities, certain travel insurance plans offer varying degrees of coverage. Make sure to buy the appropriate amount of hazardous sports insurance, which would cover paragliding. You might need to be taken to the closest hospital for appropriate care if you get an injury while paragliding. You will require travel insurance that includes emergency medical evacuation in this situation. Additionally, you could want insurance to pay for acute medical care, such as surgery, rehabilitation, and physical therapy. It may be exciting to enjoy the activity and have a fantastic time while flying through the skies like a bird if you get adventure travel insurance that provides suitable coverage for paragliding.

    • Most pilots will do aerobatic maneuvers in the air based on a client's requirement and desire in exchange for an additional fee. In the past, paragliding in Pokhara was one of the most well-liked tourist attractions. However, the authorities have cautioned pilots not to perform any insane acrobatics in the air due to a surge in accidents and violations of safety regulations. So you may now enjoy adventure sports while taking in a panoramic view as you softly soar between points.

    • In Pokhara, the maximum weight for paragliding is 100 KG, and the lesser weight is not allowed. Additionally, we accept bookings for children who are at least 15 KG or 12 years old.

    • Sarangkot, the northern-western peak in the Pokhara valley, is where Pokhara paragliding takes off, and Pame, on the Shore of Phewa Lake, is where it lands.

    • The main safety measures include the passenger's health as well as the environment and the state of the paraglider.

    • For tandem paragliding, no prior experience is necessary. The pilot will do all the work, allowing you to sit back, unwind, and take in the breathtaking scenery.

    • The majority of businesses charge an extra price of about NPR 2,000 for photography and videography services. You are also permitted to carry a camera on the aircraft, but doing so is entirely at your own risk. Please make sure that your personal gadget can be safely fastened to your body if you choose to bring it. Not only will you lose your camera and all the images it contains if you drop it, but even a little object can be fatal if it falls from a tremendous height onto someone who is lying on the ground.

    • Paragliding is not suitable for pregnant women or those with asthma, epilepsy, osteoporosis, or heart disease. If you suffer from high blood pressure or diabetes, it is best to get your doctor’s advice before taking part in this sport. Additionally, if you have extreme fear of heights or a tendency to behave erratically when scared, perhaps paragliding is not for you, as it can put both you and your pilot in a dangerous situation.
