Types of Paragliding flight in Pokhara

As you already know, there are two types of paragliding activities which I have mentioned above. So what are the types of paragliding and how it is different from each other?

Tandem Flight
You can join for a thrilling tandem flight in Pokhara to experience the amazing free flight in the bluish skies. Most of the travelers or paraglider choose the tandem flight because you will be paragliding with a pilot, not flying by on your own in the sky. You don’t have to worry about anything during your tandem paragliding flight except one thing, how to enjoy the fight?
Tandem paragliding flight helps to take a stunning picture of your surroundings and Annapurna mountains. You can enjoy the beautiful view of the Pokhara valley along with the magnificent lakes which look like a gem in the middle of the valley.
Tandem flight means to be a short flight in the sky, which long lasts 15 to 20 minutes. However, you will fully experience the best flight of your lifetime.

Cross-country Flight
Cross-country paragliding flight is just like a tandem flight where a pilot takes you in the bluish sky. You will soar like a bird while enjoying a breathtaking view of Pokhara valley and snow-capped mountains. A fly into uncharted territory with a flow of wind helps you to discover new things.
You can enjoy the cross-country paragliding flight for 40 to 55 minutes, which is pretty much longer than tandem flight. If you are not satisfied with paragliding or want to take a longer flight while enjoying the amazing landscapes, then cross-country paragliding is perfect for you in Pokhara.

Paragliding path and Best time of Day in Pokhara

The flight starts from the Sarangkot (1500m), which is just 25 minutes drive from Pokhara. You can experience the beautiful view of Annapurna Mountains at an altitude of between 2500m and 3400m along with the spectacular Phewa lake. Finally, you will land on the Pokhara valley after the beautiful flight in the bluish skies.
Paragliding in Pokhara normally has 2-3 flights per day, which is in the early morning, mid-morning, early afternoon and late afternoon. If you want to experience the best flight, then wait until the sun completely out, which creates the thermal heat for flight.
So, if you want a calm and less turbulent flight, then 11:30 AM is the best time of the day for the paragliding and helps to make your money worth it for flight.

Is it safe to do Paragliding in Pokhara?

Yes, it is completely safe to do paragliding in Pokhara. In fact, it is safer than crossing a busy road in Pokhara. The company will cover all your necessary safety measures while your paragliding flight. However, some obstacles can occur during the take-off and landing because of the sudden change in the wind.
Besides that, you also have a reserve chute and a large lake for your safety in case of any sudden accident. But do not forget to get travel insurance before starting your flight.

Best season for Paragliding in Pokhara

You can enjoy paragliding flight in Pokhara all year except on rainy days. The best season for paragliding is the same as the normal season for tourists in Nepal, which is from September to November and February to March. These months are best for paragliding as the thermals will develop much better, which helps for easy flying.
So, choose a suitable month for paragliding flight in Nepal and make a beautiful memory.

What will be the timing for Paragliding?

The paragliding will be done on 2 different timing per day on a daily basis.

First flight – 09: 00 am
