Pokhara offers so much but one thing that grabbed me was watching the paragliders slowly floating up above the hills and above the lake. With such great weather, clear blue skies, a beautiful lake and a mountain range to be had I couldn’t ignore the chance to take what I can only call the ride of my life! Without further a do, I’ll just post some pictures because words can’t describe the sheer delight I felt heading high up into the hills, noticing the slight thinning of air and then floating without fear…
I booked the flight, was picked up by the pilots in a jeep then thrust up hill for what seemed an age before we disembarked and hiked a little to the launch site.
While waiting out turn we got to see many launch, all so quiet, so natural and amazingly so safe! All of this with a background a 30 second walk up hill that took my breathe away:
THAT was my view, along with more of the range — a sublime build up to a wonderful flight.
Many thanks to Harry at Peace Himalayan Paragliding Pvt. Ltd., Pokhara for a safe and personalised flight! AMAZING!!! 😃😃😃
