The nearly-rectangular nation of Nepal on the southern inclines of the Himalayas, is regardless, the most dazzling nation possible. The principal region for paragliding is the valley of Pokhara, with great views of three of the world’s eight-thousanders. The beautiful nature with astounding sceneries is the perfect setting for your paragliding experience in Nepal.
After you have completed your trekking and arrived in Pokhara, and looking to do something fruitful for the day, you can paraglide on that extra day. This city of lakes is a prominent destination for various sorts of adventure activities, paragliding being one of them. First we take a 20-minute jeep ride from Pokhara to the to of Sarangkot hill. The altitude is 2,000 ft with a large lake visible down below. In tandem paragliding, your seat feels more like an easy chair and less like a flying mechanism. Once dispatched, you just sit back and enjoy the beautiful landscapes in all directions. We strongly suggest you bring your action-cam during paragliding.
It is one of the best ways to view the magnificence of Pokhara. The glider taking off from Sarangkot, the number-one vantage point for sunrise and sunset views, takes you on a flying adventure with sightseeing of the Annapurna range, green hills and valleys, and beautiful lakes. It is a bewitching and unreserved experience that you are sure to value forever.
A representative of Adventure White Mountain will receive you at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu and will transfer you to the hotel. If you are fresh enough and not tired by journey, you can take short walk over Thamel and enjoy the evening. Overnight in a hotel.
It is a busy day with jam-packed schedule. We will visit four UNESCO listed World Heritage Sites of Kathmandu namely, Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath temple, Bouddhanath stupa and Swoyambhunath stupa.
After having a breakfast we leave Kathmandu for Pokhara- City of lakes. We either go in a private vehicle or a tourist bus. It takes around six to seven hours to reach Pokhara. The journey in between is so marvelous. You can view Trishuli River, cable car and various waterfalls on the way. Right before entering Pokhara the breathtaking view of Machhpuchhre (Fishtail) mountain will leave you speechless. You will be at Pokhara by noon.
You can roam around Pokhara. If interested, you can enjoy boating at Phewa Lake. You can see the lifestyle of pokhara.
On this day, early in the morning we head towards Sarangkot. It is a hill from where we can enjoy Annapurna and Dhaulagiri in north and observe Pokhara to its (Sarangkot) south. Sarangkot is a destination for paragliding. Here we will experience the beautiful event. Besides, watching sunrise from this place is amazing experience of life. The way the sun kisses the snow-capped peak is not expressed in words.
Now we move towards Pokhara and explore all popular landmarks of this lake city. Davis Falls, Shiva Cave, Mahendra Cave, do boating in Phewa Lake (largest lake of the city) and visit Bindhyabashini Temple (the temple is located at the centre of the lake) are today’s major activities. We will also observe International Mountain Museum (IMM) that is of its kind which keeps records of mountaineering activities happening in the world.
