Pokhara Paragliding

Trip Overview

After breakfast, head up to Sarangkot for some paragliding. The views of the mountains, farmland, and Phewa Lake, plus the stable and relatively predictable thermals (warm air currents) at Sarangkot make this one of the best places in the whole world to try the adventure sport. Beginners can do tandem rides with an experienced guide — while running off the side of the cliff may seem a bit daunting, once you’re airborne the experience is peaceful and calming. You’ll float over beautiful terraced farmland on the hillside, with the Annapurna Himalaya in the background, and slowly make your way down to the landing area beside the lake. The length of flights depends on the day’s conditions, but most last between 20 minutes and half an hour. Guides usually take GoPro photos and video you can keep as a memento.
