Where to do Paragliding in Nepal?

Pokhara

Gliding is a weather-dependent sport and the flying season in Nepal commences from November through February, the best months being November and December. The takes off point for these flights is Sarangkot (1592m.), which also offers prime views of Fewa lake and mountains at sunrise and sunset (provided the skies are clear) and the landing is by the Fewa lake. No previous experience is required as qualified pilots provide a short briefing before launching.
