Paragliding in Nepal

Trip Overview

Paragliding in Nepal is perhaps the most rewarding of short duration adventure sports given the fact that there is nothing between you and the scenery unfolding before you. This sport comes closest to flying like a bird as you share airspace with vultures, eagles, kites and other birds as you glide over Pokhara valley. In the distance lie the majestic Himalayas and down below are the villages, monasteries, temples, lakes and jungles, a true bird’s eye view and a fascinating one at that.

Gliding is a weather dependent sport and the flying season in Nepal commences from November lasting through February, the best months being November and December. By virtue of its latitude and monsoonal climate, the tree line in Nepal is at an incredible 3,900 m above sea level. With conditions milder than summer alpine, these are excellent and constant atmospherics.

Paragliding in Nepal

The most suitable terrain for flying in Nepal lies in the Annapurna region, more specifically the Pokhara valley. This lakeside town is Nepal’s second city, nestled at the foot of the Annapurna range, the views commanded from here, of 3 of the worlds 8000m peaks, are unsurpassed. At an altitude of 800m ASL the subtropical climate means that year round, it is short and T-shirt weather. The micro-climate of the valley makes it an ideal area for flying, with far more constant conditions than the Kathmandu valley 150 km east. There are several sites around Phew Tal (the lake) but the most accessible is Sarangkot (1500m ASL).
