Paragliding In Pokhara | Day Tour

Paragliding is the best way to see the country like a bird fly. Nepal forms a rectangle on the southern slopes of the Himalaya and is without exception, the most stunning country imaginable. The main area for paragliding is the Pokhara valley, commanding views of 3 of the worlds 8000m peaks with friendly and constant conditions for your paragliding holiday.

From Sarangkot (1500m) to Pokhara (800m), live your first flight experiences. Feel the sensation of flying in thermal conditions, (rising more than 500m from the take-off point), from there we fly cross-country with the birds, over the local countryside you will see the rice fields, traditional villages and the people working in the fields, before we fly over the lake, offering the chance to do a little acrobatic flying (if you want to!), before landing on the border of the lake.

This is your first time ? Not a problem, experience is not required! Tandem flying is when a certified pilot flies with a passenger. Both pilot and passenger sit in harnesses that are attached to each other and the wing. A paragliding harness is designed for safety and comfort, and is like sitting in a comfy chair. After an easy take-off, the passenger sits back and relaxes... Enjoying the epic scenery and breathing the mountain air.

A calm scenic float or an acrobatic tumbling routine, this is your choice... Just tell the pilot what you feel like.

Flights last from 20 minutes to 30 minutes, depending on weather conditions, and you!

We did paragliding in Pokhara and booked through Trekking Team Group. They have a very friendly crew with lots of experience. I was very happy with my pilot in particular, he explained me everything very nicely & took great pics during the flight. Pick up & drop facility is provided. Paragliding starts from top of Sarangkot & they usually do it in thrice in a day, based on the weather conditions. Although it was a little hazy the day I did it, it's recommended to do it on a sunny day so that you get clear view of the mountains. The altitude is great and hence, the view of mountains & lake is spectacular. Try to spend more time around the lake since it's aerial view is breathtaking! It's preferable to wear comfortable clothes, shades & well fitted shoes. 

 

I flew twice with Trekking Team Group and had great time! Suman was experienced and super sympathetic paragliding pilot. Both flights were amazing, the second one took us even higher in the air with an amazing view over Pokhara and the surrounding Himalayas. I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable at any time of the flight. It was real fun and enjoyment and I would definitely go with this agency again.

The employees in the agency are friendly and competent. The pilots (my wife flew with Trisa, a female pilot) are all experienced, trained and fly with compassion. During the flight the pilot or oneself can take pictures with a GoPro4 that are burned on CD later. A good car carriers the team and equipment on top of Sarrangkot Mountain, where you start flying and picks you up again when being landed in lakeside.

I highly recommend TTG  to everyone willing to paraglide in Pokhara.
 

 


Paragliding was one of the best travel experiences that I have ever had. I booked a trip in Kathmandu with Trekking Team Group. From the minute we visited their office on the main street in Kathmandu, it was obvious that this was a very professional company. The day we were meant to fly it was cloudy, so we postponed our flight until the following day. They brought us up mountain in a jeep and we were each paired with our pilot. They talked us through everything and made us all feel very comfortable and safe. When it came to the flight we literally just ran off the side of the mountain, what an amazing feeling. The views of the lake and surrounding countryside was incredible.
The flight lasted about 30 mins and we landed next to the lake and were then taken back to their office.
I would highly recommend this company, everything went perfectly. Can't recommend them highly enough!
