Paragliding is a recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing, whose shape is formed by the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing. The pilot controls the wing by shifting their body weight and pulling on steering lines attached to the wing’s trailing edge. Paragliding can be done solo or in a tandem configuration with a trained pilot. It is typically launched by foot from a hill or mountain, but can also be launched from a flat field or from the back of a vehicle

Paragliding in Nepal is rather a new adventure sport which lets you glide through the beautiful landscape and share flying space with the vultures, eagles while hovering over valley, temples, lakes, and greenery, enjoying the view of glorious mountains at a distance. The aerial views of the Himalayas, the scenic view, and choices of locations with different proximity to the capital makes paragliding in Nepal an experience one should not miss. Also, there are flight types one can choose from. Either you can learn the basic introductory course and soar solo in the air or you can sit back and enjoy the view while your pilot leads the sail, in the tandem flight.
