Best time to Fly

Gliding is a weather dependent sport and the flying season in Nepal commences from November through February, the best months being November and December. Under its latitude and monsoonal climate, the tree line in Nepal is at an incredible 3,900 m above sea level. With conditions milder than summer alpine, these are excellent and constant atmospherics.

Seasons To Fly

By March and April, there is a mountain wind, coming off the prominent peaks, and some days causes strong valley winds. Indeed you can windsurf in April on Phewa Tal, the biggest lake in the Pokhara valley. The heavy air is just waiting for the monsoon, and the intermittent storms in April and May are only a forerunner for the spectacular break in the weather comes early June.

Where do we fly

The main area for flying in Nepal is the Annapurna region, more specifically the Pokhara valley. This lakeside town is Nepal’s second “city,” nestled at the foot of the Annapurna Himal, the views commanded from here, of 3 of the worlds 8000m peaks, are unsurpassed. At an altitude of 800m ASL, the subtropical climate means that year-round, it is short and T-shirt weather. The micro-climate of the valley makes it an ideal area for flying, with far more constant conditions than the Kathmandu valley 150 km east. Different types of flying deals-There are various deals for the paragliding enthusiast as well as those checking this sport out for the first time.

 

Courses for Gliding

There is a three-day introductory course for beginners. Also, tandem flights (where you fly with an instructor) for the inexperienced or less brave. At 6000 ft, you sit back in your seat as your qualified pilot takes you on an unforgettable journey. The take-off point for these flights is SaranGkot (1592 m), which offers prime views of Phewa Tal.
