  • Tandem paragliding involves flying with a certified pilot using a two-seater paraglider. This means you don't need any prior experience to participate.
  • The flight typically lasts for 30-40 minutes, offering ample time to soak in the stunning scenery and feel the adrenaline rush.

Take-off Points:

  • Sarangkot: This is the traditional and most popular takeoff point, offering stunning views of the valley and mountains. It's located at an altitude of 1,592 meters (5,223 ft) above sea level.

  • Mandre Dhunga: This is a newer takeoff point located at a higher altitude of 1,788 meters (5,866 ft) than Sarangkot. It offers even more breathtaking views, especially of the northern mountain ranges.


  • Paragliding in Pokhara is possible year-round, as long as the weather conditions are favorable.
  • The peak season is generally considered to be September-November and March-May, due to clear skies and stable thermals.
  • However, even during the monsoon season (July-August), paragliding can be a unique experience with lush green landscapes and powerful waterfalls.


  • Safety is of utmost importance. Always choose a reputable paragliding company with certified and experienced pilots.
  • Make sure you understand the safety procedures and ask any questions you may have before the flight.
