Amazing paragliding experience

It was an amazing experience from the first minute! Using Sarangkot as a take-off area gliders get incredible views of the Annapurna mountain range behind them while under and ahead is the beautiful lake Phewa Tal. The sky on thermals over the snow-capped mountains and pristine lakes like nowhere else in the world.
