Paragliding

Take to the sky on thermals over the snow capped mountains and pristine lakes like nowhere else in the world. With experienced pilots, choose from tandem flights to fully certified paragliding courses, solo flights or even go paragliding with hawks!

With the low lying valleys and the high cold mountains Nepal can provide some of the best paragliding experiences in the world with its natural and frequently produce rising thermals. Paragliding has been practiced in Nepal since 1995 and the sport goes from strength to strength. You can come as a beginner and leave with many flying hours under your belt. Soaring with the hawks and flying close to the Himalayan summits are experiences you will never forget whether you are an experienced pilot or a beginner undertaking your first tandem flight. You can fly with world class pilots, solo or tandem and benefit from local knowledge going cross-country or acro flying, you can even get your international license in Nepal. If you don’t have your own equipment or chose not to bring it to Nepal with you, then that is not a problem, hiring equipment in Nepal is an alternative solution.

Due to the closeness of the flying paths it is not permitted to just launch as a private pilot you may well encounter domestic flights at close quarters therefore it is important to get familiar with the Nepalese flying policies and regulations.
