Paragliding in Nepal can be truly wonderful and fulfilling experience for the adventure seeking. A trip will take you over some of the best scenery on earth, as you share airspace with Himalayan griffin vultures, eagles, kites and float over villages, monasteries, temples, lakes and jungle, with a fantastic view of the majestic Himalaya . Gliding is a weather dependent sport and the flying season in Nepal through February, the best months being November and December. The take-off point for these flights is Sarangkot (1592 m.), which also offers prime views of Phewa Lake and the mountains at sunrise and sunset (provided the skies are clear) and the landing is by the lake. No previous experience is required as qualified pilots provide a short briefing before launching.
