Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harnesssuspended below a fabric wing. Wing shape is maintained by the suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing, and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside.
Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometers, though flights of one to two hours and covering some tens of kilometers are more the norm. By skillful exploitation of sources of lift, the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand meters.
Best time to fly in Nepal
The paragliding season in Nepal starts in September and ends in early June.
But it is good all year still in July or August we get only 3-4 days non flyingable.The best time to visit is mid Sept till April. The weather is consistent and therefore great for paragliding. July to September we fly almost every day .
We are open all year around
Awe-inspiring Nepal is nestled between India (North) and Tibet (South). The best area to fly is the Pokhara Valley, in the Annapurna Region.
Pokhara, the 2nd largest city, sits beside its beautiful lake and stares at the towering mountains above, of which 3 peaks reach over 8000m. The weather conditions are perfect for flying, consistent and gentle. The view is awesome, few meters above the take-off you can see the Annapurnas, Machapuchare, Daulaghiri, Manaslu and many others smaller pics! Perfect weather conditions for beginners to accro pilot. Here we fly almost every day, except during the mooson season (July to august).
