Paragliding is a whole new way of enjoying the beauty of Nepal. With the help of experienced pilots, you can choose short tandem flights, opt for certified paragliding courses, or even go paragliding with hawks — people among adventures as para-hawking.
Low lying valleys of Nepal provides some of the best paragliding experiences in the world. Pokhara, for example, has been rated by gliders among the best places to enjoy paragliding. Paragliding not only provides you the opportunity to enjoy bird’s eye view of the beautiful landscape, lush forests, crystal clear lakes, terraced farmlands and beautiful settlements, it offers you unrivaled views of mountains lining up across the country’s northern horizon.
Paragliding began in Nepal in the 1990 in Pokhara. It has come a long way since. There are dozens of paragliding companies in Nepal, especially Pokhara Valley, who make sure that you get the best paragliding experience.
Many have described Pokhara as a haven for paragliders. There are various paragliding take off points in Pokhara and surroundings. However, the best and the most popular among them is Sarangkot hill. The Sarangkot hill offers breathtaking views of some of the highest mountains in the world. Gliders take off from Sarangkot and land on the banks of Fewa Lake. Other take off points are Mandredhunga and Toripani.
There are two paragliding operators in Kathmandu. One operates paragliding flights from Kotdanda near Fulchoki hills, while the second one operates flights from Chauki Bhanjyang a little above Sankhu. Both the places offers breathtaking mountain views as well as beautiful landscapes.
