You can enjoy paragliding in two ways: solo and tandem flights.
Solo flights: Solo flights are for skilled paragliders who want to explore the sky and explore the heights by themselves. Anyone who wishes to take the solar lights must obtain a civil aviation license in Pokhara. Important documents are required to apply for the permit, such as a photocopy of the passport and visa, a self-portrait, proof of insurance and a paragliding licence. It takes approximately an hour to complete the procedures. The permit is about $ 45 for 15 days. It can also be extended if it expires.
Tandem flights: These are the usual flights taken by all explorers. It offers qualified and expert pilots with a separate seat with separate harness for the passenger in front. These flights can last between 30 minutes and 1 hour depending on the needs of the client. This flight charms anyone with his ability to allow the passenger to take time to breathe in the scenery and to click pictures freely without the gliding parachute being handled.
Best Time to Para-glide: Pokhara is famous for its stable climate and paragliding takes place almost all year round. The best time to enjoy the full bloom of nature is during the July monsoon season when, if fortunate enough, there are no rain clouds in the sky. More definite and more secure options are recommended from September to October. This is high autumn time, so extreme weather is very low. It is one of the seasons in which flight heights up to 3000 m can be reached. March-April is also considered the ideal time, as the freshness of new flora can be seen in the spring months and the areas begin to be exquisitely filled with green. At this point, great shots can be taken. Tandem paragliding can usually be carried out at three different times from 10 am, 12 pm and 2 pm. These are times when the thermal activity starts and the flight can start very easily. If you want less turbulence, 10 am is highly suggested because the thermal activity at that time is quite low. It also reduces the flight (only about 20 minutes). But 12 pm is the ideal timing to get the best movement and stunts. During this time, active paragliding can be achieved due to fluctuating thermal activity.
