In the Annapurna region of Nepal Frontiers of Paragliding have been offering tandem flights, instruction and flying tours from way back in 1995. There are vastly experienced paragliding companies in Nepal that could take you for the flight of your lifetime with breathtaking views of mountains, hills and lakes. If you plan to do Annapurna Base Camp Trek in Nepal, you should spare some time to catch the flight of your lifetime. As outfitter in Nepal, we do recommend this breathtaking flight to all people travelling in the Annapurna Region for Trekking in Nepal Experience. We have even had clients who went for Paragliding after doing Everest Base Camp Trek.
Paragliding in Nepal not only promises spectacular scenery but also ensures safety. As outfitters based in Nepal, we are in constant interaction with Pilots and Companies to ensure safety of our clients. Add this adventure to your Trekking in Nepal experience and you won't regret it for sure.
Out of many sites, the main area for paragliding is Sarangkot in the Pokhara valley. This flight offers spectacular views of three 8,000m peaks (Mount Dhaulagiri, Mount Annapurna and Mount Manasulu). The weather in Pokhara is very friendly and consistent conditions for paragliding.
Paragliding can be enjoyed in the following regions of Nepal:
- Western Region
- Pokhara Area
- Eastern Region
- Kathmandu Peripheri
During Paragliding, safety always comes first like with everything else. So a pilot is flying with a passenger. Both have separate harnesses that are attached to each other and to the wing itself. They are built keeping both comfort and safety into consideration and please do not complain if you feel the seat is little less comfortable than your Mercedes back home. They feel like an armchair in flight. Once launched you have a very serious job to do that is to relax and take in the epic scenery. You can take pictures of yourself while you enjoy the breathtaking view.
There are special VULTURE flights as well where you will be feeding vultures during your flight. This unique opportunity will bring the bird closer to you than you ever expected as it will be literally feeding off your hands. The so called Vulture Flight is something many foreigners cherish as the bird itself has always been regarded as the devil or the corpse eater. Here, you will see a different side of the bird and this flight is sure to change the way you look at and think about the amazing bird vulture forever. As outfitter in Nepal, we do recommend this amazing experience to be added on to your already breathtaking Trekking in Nepal experience. Even if one comes back from tiring and demanding Everest Base Camp Trek, this splendid experience in the air is always worth adding on.
