Gliding is a weather dependent sport and flying season in Nepal commences from November through February. The best months are November to December. The Himalaya is made of the series of lesser mountains increasing in size, before the greater Himalaya with its majestic peaks, dominate the sky. The range that is now offered for paragliding is the Mahabarat Range, south of this giant. Most flights are out of Pokhara, the beautiful lakeside town at the foot of the Annapurna Himalaya.
There are various options for the Paragliding enthusiasts as well as those checking this sport out for the first time.

Tandem flying involves a pilot flying with a passenger. Both of them have separate harnesses that are attached to each other and the wing. Paragliding harnesses 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 pictures is not a problem. Paragliders can foot launch and gently foot land again and are very portable. We can take them anywhere and fly from most mountains in Nepal.
