Paragliding is a relatively new adventure sport in Nepal, and is the simplest, safest and least expensive way of discovering the joys of flying alone to experience the aerial views of the magnificent Himalayas. Sarangkot, at 1,592m above Lakeside in Pokhara Valley, is the jumping off point for paragliders. From here, one can witness stunning views of three of the world’s highest peaks (above 8,000m), namely, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu. In addition, the tour offers scenic views of beautiful lakes, aerial view of the Pokhara city, monasteries, temples etc.
One doesn’t need to have an experience to paraglide, as there will be qualified pilots to take you through the mesmerizing tour. The flying season in Nepal commences in October and runs through June.
