Trip Overview

Paragliding in Nepal gives you an opportunity for some of the best views of the Himalayas. Enjoy the experience of a lifetime. Fly over villages, terraced fields, lakes, monasteries, and verdant valleys. Moreover, enjoy the fantastic view of the snow-capped peaks, flying with vultures, eagles, and kites as you float in the sky. With its low-lying valleys and high mountains, Nepal offers one of the best paragliding experiences in the world.

Both Kathmandu and Pokhara offer tandem paragliding flights from several launching sites. Each flight is made in the company of well-experienced pilots to guide you through the skies. Paragliding is a weather-dependent activity that depends on the weather condition. Therefore it is best during the autumn and the spring season.


Pokhara is one of the top sites in the world to experience Paragliding. The launching site for Pokhara is Sarangkot(1592m) which is about 20 minutes drive from Lakeside, Pokhara. Furthermore, Sarangkot offers an incredible view of the mountains and the Phewa lake below. The landing site is by the side of the Phewa lake.


Accordingly, there are several launching sites in Kathmandu as well. One can choose what suits the best such as:
1. Phulchowki.
2. Godavari
3. Chapakharka
4. Kot Danda

        EDhan (America)

        My Name is EDhan from California, America. I am a retired management consultant. Basically, this visit to Nepal exceeded my expectations. We came here through Tibet and Bhutan. Here in Nepal, I like the neighbourhood and friendly people. My wife every day used to go for morning walk and used to tell me the story about the local people, whatever she sees every day. Especially, the guide was most knowledgeable and made it possible and get a sense of not only historical and religious value of some of the places but also some of the other places how the people live over there day to day.

        The company was able to manage all the services smoothly and made the memorable trip in Kathmandu. Do not be afraid of Earthquake; the government has done very good job, lots of cleaning up and reconstructions are going on. There are many places to go without facing any problems. Feel free to make a trip to Nepal nothing to afraid of and you will feel the completely different and unique. Thanks to Sixth Sixth and an entire team making an incredible trip in Nepal and I will come back next time.

        Hi, My Name is Margo Boston, America. We were planning the trip to visit Nepal Bhutan and Tibet through our local agency. In the beginning, we asked so many questions about safety, especially after the earthquake but we realised that after visiting Nepal it is completely safe & worthful to visit.

        We are very glad to see the beautiful country. Everything was perfect and great to see the Hinduism and Buddhism and combinations of religious and cultural aspects in the tiny little city. The trip plan, all the staff activity including cultural show was great.
