A trip will take you over some of the best scenery on earth, as you share airspace with Himalayan griffin vultures, eagles, kites and float over villages, monasteries, temples, lakes and jungle, with a fantastic view of the majestic Himalaya.
Paragliding is a weather dependent sports and the flying season in Nepal commences from November through February, the best months being November and December.

Fly once in Pokhara to make your dream come true.No previous experience is required as qualified pilots provide a short briefing before launching .You’ll get memories to last a lifetime in 30 to 45 minute flight. For those who want to find out what paragliding is all about but cannot commit to 2 days of instruction, we offer tandem flights. During the flight pilot will explain what he/she is doing and allow you some hands-on control of the glider.
Tandem flying involves a passenger flying with a pilot. Both have separate harnesses that are attached to each other and the wing. Paragliding harnesses are built for comfort and safety; they feel more like an armchair. After take-off the passengers just sits back, relax and enjoys the unfolding magnificent sceneries. Because paragliders can foot launch and gently foot land again and are very portable we can take them anywhere and fly from most mountains in Nepal.
