Paragliding in Nepal is one of the most exciting and adventurous activity that offers experiences like no other. The best thing about it is that anyone can learn how to fly! Those new to the sport will be able to take a tandem flight with an experienced pilot. Your instructor will fix you to his / her harness and position you in the front. You will be attached to the parachute, which will be laid out on a grassy slope behind you. Your instructor will then tell you to run quickly down the slope. You will then take off into the air and start your flight; your instructor will steer the paraglide into thermals (patches of warm air) to gain height. The flying schools in Pokhara offer a wide range of courses. Himalayan Vacation Treks and Expedition can make arrangement for tandem flights in Nepal with professional paragliding pilots. The main area for paragliding is Sarangkot in the Pokhara valley, a site which offers spectacular views of the mountain peaks like Machhapuchchhre, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri etc and the entire beautiful Pokhara Valley and around it.
