Paragliding in Pokhara: Paragliding in Nepal amongst the grandest scenery on earth is an inspiring experience. Float over mystery, shrouded monasteries, and ancient places, beautiful turquoise lakes, ranging Himalayan Rivers, exotic jungle, and village forgotten by time. It involves a pilot flying with a passenger. Both of them have separate harness that is attached to each other and the wing. Paragliding harness are built for comfort and safety, they feel more like an armchair. After take-off, the passenger just sits back, relaxes, and takes in the epic scenery. Even taking picture is not a problem. Para gliders can foot launch and gently foot land again and are very portable. We can take them anywhere and fly from most mountains in Nepal. < br/>< br/> Annapurna Panorama Flights: we take 20 minutes drive from Pokhara uphill to Sarangkot view point 2000 ft above Lakeside.
