Paragliding in the Himalayas is a unique experience that you'll never forget: seeing the dramatic peaks of the Annapurna Massif and the stunning landscapes of Pokhara from the air will leave you speechless.
Paragliding in the Himalayas
Leaving your hotel in Pokhara, you'll be taken to the outskirts of the city, where you'll be given all the equipment you'll need to soar through the skies of Nepal. With your helmet and harnesses on, it'll be time for take off!
Each paraglide has the maximum capacity for two people: your experienced pilot-companion, who will direct the paraglide, and you as passenger. Don't worry if this is your first paragliding experience, all you'll need to do is enjoy the mind-blowing panoramic views from your vantage point in the sky! Your flight over Pokhara, which will last around thirty minutes, will give you spectacular bird's eye views over the verdant valleys of this stunning area of Nepal.
Fly over Phewa Lake and spot the Buddhist and Hindu temples located around its banks - there's even one tiny temple perched on an islet in the lake! Throughout your paragliding flight, you'll also be able to see the dramatic peaks of the Himalaya mountain range in the distance. The Annapurna Massif and Machhapuchhre, whose name means "fish tail" after its distinctive double peak, dominate the skyline around Pokhara.
Your paragliding flight over Pokhara will come to an end with you touching down in a safe zone located in the outskirts of the city. From there, you'll be taken back to your hotel after an unforgettable experience.
