Nepal has many secrets to offer ranging from mountain expedition to paragliding. Paragliding in the Himalayan region is a truly wonderful experience. Nepal has incredible paragliding sites to take pictures, to enjoy the freedom of flying like a bird, and to view the alluring magic of Himalayan range. Pokhara is one of the top 5 commercial tandem paragliding locations in the world, with all the right ingredients: stable thermals, convenient take-off and landing zones, the safety of a large lake and incredible mountain views.
Paragliding in Pokhara is full of magnetic scenery on earth such as beautiful lakes, spectacular peaks, and stunning overhead view of the city, monasteries, temples, lakes and jungle. The thrill commences from Sarangkot, the capital site of paragliding in Pokhara.
