The stunning Himalayan Range in Nepal creates some of the the most stunning scenery imaginable. These mountains also create the perfect conditions for Paragliding. The main area for paragliding is the Pokhara Valley, offering views of three of the world’s 8000m peaks.
Tandem flying involves a pilot flying with a passenger. Both have separate harnesses that are attached to each other and the wing. Paragliding harnesses are built for comfort and safety. Once launched the passenger just sits back, relaxes and takes in the epic scenery. Taking spectacular pictures and videos of your flight are possible. Due to the portable nature and easy launch characteristics of a paraglider (they fit into a rucksack) We can take them anywhere and fly them from most mountains in Nepal.
It takes a 30 min jeep ride from Pokhara to Sarangkot to the take off point at 2000ft above Lakeside. From here we can see Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu peaks.
We offer three types of tandem flights from here.
Phewa Lake View
In the morning and late afternoon these 30 minute flights give you a taste of unpowered flight, taking you over Phewa Lake and then landing in North Lakeside.
This midday flight gives you the thrill of high flight as we thermal up above Sarangkot in the company of eagles and vultures, 30 minutes – 1 hour. We land by the lake.
This offers you the chance to experience flying from one valley to another. Using thermals, clouds and birds to guide us, we take you on an unforgettable journey north of Pokhara towards the big mountains. We fly as long as we can and aim to return to Pokhara that afternoon.
