Among all the popular paragliding spots in the world, Nepal has some of the most technical and beautiful spots for such an adventure sport. This is mainly due to the topography of the country whose ranges from 70 metres in the low lands of Terai to the top of the world, the Mount Everest reaching 8848 metres. This is why Nepal is one of the preferred destinations in the world for the free-flight enthusiasts.
Since 1999, the Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN) organizes an international paragliding competition called “Nepal Open Paragliding Championship”. The event gathers more than 40 nationalities, 150 para gliders and 45 000 spectators.
Many spots in Nepal are able to give you a stunning experience of paragliding with astonishing landscapes of deep valleys, lush green jungles and the majestic Himalayas.
Among them, Pokhara is the most famous spot in the country. Indeed, a flight from Sarangkot (1500 m) to Pokhara (800 m) give you the opportunity to fly with birds, over the countryside, the traditional villages, Phewa Lake and front of the Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu ranges.
The Tandem Flight consists in a certified pilot flying with a passenger. Both have separate harness and they are attached to each other and the wing.
