Nothing can beat the thrill of being up in the sky, flying like a bird in the thermals all the while enjoying views of snow capped mountains, pristine lakes and verdant valleys like nowhere else on earth. With experienced pilots to guide you through the skies, it’s an experience of a lifetime. You may fly again someday, but you’ll never enjoy the same spectacular views. Choose from tandem flights to fully certified paragliding courses, solo flights or even go paragliding accompanied by hawks!
With the low lying valleys and the high cold mountains, Nepal provides some of the best paragliding experiences in the world with its natural rising thermals. Paragliding has been in vogue in Nepal since 1995 and the sport is getting ever more popular. You can sign in as a beginner and leave with many flying hours under your belt. Soaring high above with the hawks and enjoying incredible views of the Himalayan peaks from this vantage point is an experience you will never forget. 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 you can hire them in Nepal if you want to fly on your own.
Due to the risks of being too close to the flying paths of domestic airlines, you are not permitted to just launch as a private pilot. Therefore it is important to get familiar with and follow the flying policies and regulations of Nepal.
