Trip Overview

Paragliding in Pokhara is one of the most highly sought out adventure sports activities in Nepal.

Fly near the clouds over the captivating lakes surrounded by fascinating mountain views around Pokhara. Introduced in Nepal in 1995, paragliding has today become one of the most popular adventure sports in Nepal. Whether you are a novice to the world of paragliding or an expert, flying near the towering Himalayas can absolutely prove to be an adventure of a lifetime, where you can rejoice in the moment like nowhere else on earth. You can either take a solo flight if you are experienced and confident enough. Alternatively, you can also fly tandem with a certified pilot, who will control the flight while you enjoy your journey on the skies. 

Paragliding in Pokhara Overview

Pokhara is the most popular paragliding hub in Nepal. The scintillating flight from the viewpoint of Sarangkot begins with a 30-minutes jeep ride from Pokhara to the launch site located 2,000ft above Lakeside. Before the tandem flight, you will receive an on-site orientation from a certified pilot about the flight procedure. The pilot will then adjust a harness seat to your body size and check the straps for safety purpose. The launch of the flight takes place from a steep hill. During the launch, you will need to take a few steps along with the pilot before being lifting off from the ground. After 30-45 minutes of the adventure, the glider finally lands at Lakeside.

When Paragliding in Pokhara, gliders get a mesmerizing view of the Phewa lake and the Sarangkot Hill, as well as the surrounding mountains. The service operates under international safety guidelines and thus is very safe for any healthy person. To ensure an extra layer of safety, you can glide with a skilled instructor who holds a valid international license for Paragliding.

Why Paragliding in Pokhara

The glider moves above the Phewa lake and the beautiful Pokhara city, giving an amazing up-close view of Machhapuchare and other mountains. Following the most advanced international safety standards the paragliding operations are run by local and international gliding experts. Flying high and up close near the towering mountains, Paragliding in Pokhara offers gliders an amazing combination of scenic views and adrenaline rush that can’t be found anywhere else.

Additionally, while in Pokhara, you can also indulge in other sports activities like Bungy Jumping.

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.
