Paragliding Nepal in 1995-96

Paragliding was introduced into Nepal in 1995-96 when some foreign visiting pilots decided to explore flying possibilities around the Pokhara valley. The sport with its self advertising nature soon charmed the country 'advertising' and has gained enormous popularity since.More to the point, Nepal's vast and diverse geographic features offer a variety of sites and absolute flying cnditions,almost anythings a para glider pilot could wish for. A paragliding trip in Nepal takes you over some of the best scenery on earth,as you share airspace with Himalayan griffin vultures,eagles,kites and float over mystery shrouded monasteries,ancient temples ,beautiful turquoise lakes,raging rivers,exotic jungles and old villages with a fantastic view of majestic Himalaya. Pokhara is the most celebrated destination for paragliding in Nepal and is fast attaining world recognition.The beautiful city at the foot of the Annapurna Himalayan gives of opportunity for a commanding aerial view of the Annapurna range that compries 3 of the 10 highest peaks in the world-Dhaulagiri, Annapurna ,Manasulu,all over 8000m.
