Trip Overview

Ultralight flight in Nepal is a unique way to observe the comprehensive view of the whole Pokhara valley. Similarly, it also provides spectacular areal mountain views. Likewise, we can also see the entire Annapurna ranges, Pokhara city, villages, lush green forest, and lakes at the same time. Basically, ultralight is a very light aircraft that has no window and seating capacity for only two persons, including a pilot and a passenger. These two-seater aircraft are powered by engines that are powerful enough to reach very close to the mountain peaks. Therefore, making it truly a unique experience and an ideal way to see life from a new perspective.

Ultralight flight in Nepal is available only in Pokhara. The main reason to choose Pokhara Valley for ultralight aircraft is mainly due to its proximity to the mountains, and the beautiful lakes. Flights are from Pokhara airport beginning September through June. The flights take place from sunrise to 11 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to sunset every day during these months. Ultralight flight in itself is quite an extra thrilling adventure. Together with the ability to reach so close to the mountains, tourists love the experience of flying ultralight. Furthermore, it is one of the most unique experiences of a lifetime.

    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.

    Hi ! This is Palm from America, this is my first trip to Nepal and has been perfect and life time memorable. I have travelled many places around the world and really been looking forward to this trip. Nepal is a very colourful country, I was concerned because of the earthquake and because of the impact might right now. I was pleasantly surprised that yes they did have an impact and there are lots of reconstruction are going on. There are lots of places to see and open for the tourist. The people here are very friendly, all the staffs of Sixth Sense including tour guide and the management and coordination were perfect.

    What I like this country is that the culture and diversity of landscape. Besides this Nepal is very vibrant country and colourful country. In the future, I would like to make more trips in Nepal with Sixth Sense spending more time in Kathmandu and it’s surrounding areas and countryside. For the tourist, I would recommend please do visit Nepal with Sixth Sense.
