Paragliding

Q.  TANDEM PARAGLIDING FOR THE FIRST TIME?
No worries, experience is not required! Tandem flying is when a certified pilot flies with a passenger. Both pilot and passenger sit in the 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.

Bring with you strong shoes and a windproof jacket.  Want to try the calm scenic float, or an acrobatic tumbling routine? It’s your calling... just tell the pilot your preference.
Flights last from 30 minutes to 45 minutes, depending on the weather conditions along with you.

CROSS COUNTRY TANDEM FLIGHT
Cross-country flight is for those people who want to experience more about paragliding - to fly into unchartered territory, with only the birds and the wind for company.
It is recommended for people, who have already flown a tandem flight.

We take off from Sarangkot (1500meters) and depending upon the weather conditions, we can cross the lake, or many of the other unspoiled valleys in the area, following the Seti or perhaps the Mardi River, reaching altitudes of between 2500meters and 3400meters, before returning to Pokhara by air or perhaps by bus or taxi.

EXPEDITION TANDEM FLIGHT
We leave early in the morning by bus or taxi, between (2) two to (4) four hours from Pokhara and try to come back to Pokhara by flight.
