Pokhara in Paragliding- Air adventure in Nepal
In the search of impossible, mankind has always had the thought of soaring through the skies. What would the view from height-unknown be? The gush of wind, trembling chill, and an ineffable feeling of having conquered the skies! No other feats even come close to the jubilation. Flown from the hills of Sarangkot; paragliding is a must do activity in Pokhara. An almost 2-hour long activity, Pokhara Paragliding is the perfect way to spend your day with a bird’s eye view of the beautiful scenery of the Nepali landscape.
Our journey will depend on the winds, if the winds are favorable, we will start our journey at Lakeside from where we will take a half an hour drive to the hill of Sarangkot. The view atop the hill offers spectacular delights of the Machhapuchhre (6997m) also known as Fishtail and the Annapurna (8091) among many others. We will then harness in with the pilot and take our flight. The flight takes you across the Pokhara valley and offers a spectacular perspective than the mundane one that you have been accustomed to. We will land next to the Phewa Lake and if you’re really up for it the pilot might entertain you with an acrobatic spin in the air.
There are different types of flying experiences, tandem flight which is half an hour long, cross country which is one hour long and will help travel quite a distance, there are also options to para hawk where a hawk is flying alongside you to add to your experience. Nothing can beat this sheer joy and you wouldn’t want to miss it for the world.
