The topography and climate of Nepal also make it an ideal destination for all levels of pilots - subtropical conditions provide plenty of thermals and combined with the long valleys common in Nepal, they produce perfect "cloud streets" ideal for Para gliders, inviting them to fly along this "sky highway. The local microclimate, controlled by the numerous lakes in the valley, is unique, which makes it even better for the glider. The Himalayas is made up of a series of lesser mountains increasing in size, before the Greater Himalayas, with its majestic snow - clad peaks, dominate the sky. The range that is now offered for paragliding is the Mahabharat range, south of these giants. Most flights are out of Pokhara, the beautiful lakeside town at the foot of the Annapurna Himal.

The take off points for these flights is Sarangkot (1592m), which offers prime views of Phewa lake and the mountains at sunrise and sunset the landing is by the lake. No previous experience is required as qualified pilots provide a short briefing before launching.
