Pokhara, a beautiful city about six hours by bus west of Kathmandu, has become known for its exceptional paragliding. Pokhara sits beside a beautiful lake, Phewa Tal, with stunning views of the towering mountains above—of which 3 peaks reach over 8000m. The weather conditions are perfect for flying, consistent and gentle. The view is awesome—a few meters above the take-off you can see the Annapurnas, Machapuchare, Daulaghiri, Manaslu and many others smaller peaks! The weather conditions are perfect for everyone from beginners to accro pilots. People fly almost every day in Pokhara, except during the mooson season (usually July and August).
