Paragliding


Paragliding

Overview

Gliding is an adventure sport that provides you an opportunity to have bird eyes view of cities, mountain as well as other natural beauty of Nepal.

Hang gliding is an outdoor sport on which weather is always a big consideration and where primary safety factors are personal judgment and attitude. You must be willing to learn gradually and use good judgment and have an appropriate attitude. If you don’t, then you can get injured or killed; if you do, then you can hang glide throughout your lifetime.

Hang gliding is usually performed by using air current without an engine power. The pilot is suspended in a swing harness from the centre of the keel and maintains control wholly by weight shift arrangement with the help of airframe. To take off, the pilot runs on a down hill approximately 40-degree slope and is airborne the moment he crosses the gliders stalling speed, which vary from 15-km to 30-km per hour. Hang gliding is organized by Shreeban Rock Climbing Nature Camp at the Siddha Lake of nalang - Dhading District using ultra light aircrafts. Hang gliding can be done from various parts of the country.

Soaring can be done by using ridge lifts created by wind striking the hill face or by hot air columns known as "thermals" that keep rising upward from the sun heated surface. One can fly as long as one wishes once he has acquired good experience.

If you want to touch the skies and sky is the limit for you, then hang gliding is the sport for you. You jog down a slope and glide away from the mountain. You do not free-fall or jump off of a cliff. Your launches and landings are deliberate and, once in the air, you will probably be surprised by how peaceful the experience is.

Even if you are afraid of heights, it will rarely be a factor, since there is no sensation of falling. Your solo lesson will require more effort physical as well as mental, than your tandem lesson, but it lays the basic groundwork necessary to becoming your own pilot.

Paragliding in Nepal can be a truly wonderful and fulfilling experience for the adventure seeking. A trip will take you over some of the best scenery on earth, as you share airspace with Himalaya griffin vultures, eagles, kites and float villages, monasteries, temples, lakes and jungle, with a fantastic view of the majestic Himalayas. The last three years have seen the activity flourish in Pokhara and it now is an internationally recognized destination for free-flight enthusiasts Gliding as a weather depended sport and the flying season in Nepal commences from November and December. The take-off point for these flights in Sarangkot (1592m), which also offers prime views of Phewa lake and the Mountains at sunrise and sunset (provided the skies and clear) and the landing is by the lake. No previous experience is required as qualified pilots provide a short briefing before launching.
