While on the paragliding tour from central Kathmandu, you can get a birds-ey perspective of the Kathmandu Valley and the massive mountains beyond. While Kathmandu, Nepal's capital and largest city, is a popular tourist destination due to the prospects of visiting temples, seeing heritage sites, purchasing souvenirs, and other activities abound in Kathmandu. Paragliding is also one of the greatest adventure activities to undertake in Kathmandu.
Paragliding in Kathmandu is done from the hills around the Godavari. The most prominent hill is the peak of Phulchowki. The paragliding viewpoint is around a 30-45 minutes by car ride from Kathmandu valley and is located at a height of 2100 meters above sea level. The location is called Chapakharka. The whole flight duration for the Paragliding is around 20-30 minutes after which we will land at a place called Rachantar where you will be welcomed.
On clear days, amazing views of the central Himalayan mountain ranges can be seen including Ganesh Himal and the Langtang range. Prepare your cameras to record airborne sights never seen before, as each voyage is unique. Your pilot will also be able to assist you in recording these moments on video or audio. The pilots are thoroughly experienced and will assure your safety and comfort while flying.
Sit back, relax, and take in the amazing sights that few people have seen throughout history. Take your camera or have your pilot record that amazing moment. Standing up and walking a few steps are required for takeoff and landing. There will be no cliff leaping or crash landings. You won't believe how simple and safe it is to fly with us until you try it.
If the weather seems good, paragliding in the Godavari can be done in any season. However, there are seasons that will ensure that you get the best bang for your buck.
The months of March-April during Spring will see plenty of greenery in the surrounding hills along with large beautiful clouds that paint the sky. During the summer season, the skies are usually clear as well, however, the temperature can get a bit too warm for some.
Monsoon seasons during July and August are not recommended for Paragliding as the weather is unpredictable with rains and winds causing frequent disturbances.
The autumn-winter months are also great for paragliding as the snow-capped peaks and surrounding hills can be seen on clear days with a deep blue sky above.
