Trip Overview

Paragliding in Nepal is an amazing experience, and it is one of the most popular adventure sports in Nepal. Pokhara, a lovely city nestled in the Annapurna mountains, began paragliding in 1995, and after its success, Kathmandu entered the business. It has satisfied the thirst for adrenaline of adventurers from all over the world. When it comes to paragliding in Nepal, Pokhara is still a heavyweight contender, but paragliding in Kathmandu is gaining appeal among people who cannot afford to travel to Pokhara owing to a variety of factors.

The highest peak near Fewa Lake, known as Sarangkot, is where the paragliding Nepal trip begins. Sarangkot is a small hilltop community that sits at an elevation of little over 1400 meters and is known for its early morning sunrises and as a center for aerial adventure activities. Moreover, Fewa Lake, which is located at the foot of the hill, is itself a sight to behold, and the hawk eye view over the lake and its surroundings add to its allure. The splendor of the paragliding journey is enhanced by the view of the Annapurna to the north.
