Nepal is known for its pristine beauty, cultural diversity and hospitality. There are countless places to visit and it keeps surprising you at every step. If activities like bungee jump, hiking, rafting doesn’t fill you up with excitement then Paragliding maybe the right choice for you. You can witness the breathtaking Nepal from a bird’s eye view and feel like you are on top of the world. There is nothing more memorable than witnessing an aerial view of the towering Himalayan peaks to the north and the lush, terraced farmland of the mid-hills all around.
Pokhara offers you the best paragliding experience in Nepal. It features the gorgeous Annapurna Mountain Range within its vicinity. There are several sites around Phew Tal (the lake) in Pokhara city but the most accessible is Sarangkot (1500m ASL). No previous experience is required as qualified pilots provide a short briefing before launching.
For best conditions, the suns needs to have been out long enough to heat the earth and create the thermals necessary for lift. The early morning flights tends to be a bit less than 30 minutes as the thermals haven’t developed yet. If you’re looking for a clam, less turbulent flight, this is the best time. By 11:30 AM, the thermals have become active and the best conditions for paragliding are in place. If you want to get your money’s worth, this is the best time to fly.
