NEPAL FLYING TOUR

Our 10-day tours offer a fantastic introduction to flying in the Nepal Himalaya, and represent excellent value for money. By joining one of these tours, you are buying into a great deal of knowledge and experience gained from over 15 years of leading paragliding tours in Nepal.

Do not think that you have to be a full-on comp pilot to fly here. The truth is that almost any level of experience will see you equally enjoying the pilot friendly conditions that this unique subtropical climate provides. Club Pilot +25 hours will see you thermalling easily in the company of Himalayan Griffon Vultures.

The flying conditions are generally a little stronger in the spring months, and this is when cloudbase is usually at its highest. From February to May, longer XC flights are possible, so our tour is carefully timed and designed so as to take advantage of these optimum flying conditions. 

We launch from a variety of great sites in and around the Pokhara valley, and build up a detailed knowledge of the region as the tour progresses. Your tour leaders will be on hand to advise and help you make the right XC decisions - in the right place & at the right time. Our ultimate goal is to connect all these points later on in the week on the paratrek.

 

TOUR DETAILS 

On arrival in Nepal, you will be met at the airport and spend one night in the Sacred Valley Inn in Kathmandu before flying to Pokhara the following morning.  The views of the mountains during this short flight are simply amazing, so try and sit on the right side of the plane.

After 25 minutes on board the Jetstream 400, we land at the beautiful city of Pokhara, nestled at the foot of the Annapurna massif. We base ourselves here for the next 5 days, travelling by private minibus to a handful of great flying sites in and around the valley and returning in the late afternoon to the hotel. Before each day’s flying, we review the flying area on google earth, hand you waypoint information for retrieve points and XC routes, and discuss the XC objectives of the day.

With a bunch of decent flights now in the bag, we leave the Pokhara valley and set off on a 3-day paratrek into the charming Nepalese foothills. With Sherpas to carry our equipment, set-up camp and cook us amazing food, all you have to do is enjoy the flying, eat like a king and lap up the incredible mountain views.

In the evening, after dinner in the mess tent, it is normal for the entire local village to come and welcome us in the traditional way, with a night of singing and dancing under the stars & around the campfire.Our objective is to fly back to Pokhara on the 3rd day, building up our knowledge & understanding of the area each day before connecting the dots on the 3rd day and making the XC run back to Pokhara.

Before returning to Kathmandu at the end of the tour, we stop for a night in Bandipur, a traditional Newari village. This site offers a great flying experience, with stunning views of the Manasulu Himal. It is a thermic dynamic site that allows for hours of easy flying but with an exciting sense of exposure as you soar 1000m above the valley floor. A great way to end the trip.  Comprehensive details of the tour will be sent to you on booking.
