Overview

Paragliding is a relatively new adventure sport in Nepal, and if you go though tourist guidebooks all you would find will be very little information. Paragliding in this Himalayan country can be a truly wonderful and fulfilling experience for the adventure seekers. You can experience unparalleled scenic grandeur as you share airspace with Himalayan griffin vultures, eagles, kites, while floating over villages, monasteries, temples, lakes, and jungles, with fantastic views of the majestic Himalayas to constantly remind you of the wonderful adventure you have chosen to be a part of.

Gliding is a weather dependent sport and the flying season in Nepal commences from November and goes on through February, the best months being November and December. By virtue of its latitude and monsoon climate, the tree line in Nepal is at an incredible 3900m above sea level. With conditions milder than summer alpine, these are excellent and constant atmospherics. The topography and climate of Nepal also make it an ideal destination for all level of pilots – subtropical conditions provide plenty of thermals and combined with the long valleys common in Nepal, they produce perfect “cloud streets” ideal for Paragliders, inviting them to fly along this “sky highway”. The local micro climate, controlled by the numerous lakes in the valley, is unique, which makes it even better for the glider.

The take off points for these flights is Sarangkot (1592m), which offers prime views of Phewa Tal and the mountains at sunrise and sunset (provided the skies are clear); and the landing is by the lake. No previous experience is required as qualified pilots provide a short briefing before launching.
