Pokhara is also known to be the tourist capital of Nepal. It is a beautiful city of Nepal surrounded by mesmerizing mountain peaks of Annapurna region with a great lakeside city. Anyone falls in love with this heavenly city and there are no shortages of fun things to do in Pokhara. Along those fun activities, paragliding in Pokhara is one of the best activities in Pokhara that one can experience.
The paragliding experience in Pokhara gives an opportunity for the beautiful aerial view of the Himalayan range. As you fly by, you can witness the mighty peaks of Annapurna region such as Mt. Machhapuchhre, Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Dhaulagiri, and many more. First there are two ways to travel to Pokhara. One is the flight to Pokhara which will take around 35 minutes while the other is drive to Pokhara which will take around 6-8 hours. You can go for paragliding the same day if you've traveled to Pokhara by flight in the morning but if you took the long way of driving then you can only do the activity the next day. To reach the paragliding spot, we first travel to Sarangkot, a hilltop on the outskirts of Pokhara valley. From there one can paraglide as there are various paragliding deals to both veterans and novice flyers. Pilots are always by you side and its very safe and secure as it provides a lot of fun and excitement. The view is truly majestic. As we fly over the Fewa Lake with Great Himalayas by our side, it is once in a lifetime thing to do. Paragliding in Pokhara is highly recommended to anyone who wants to visit Pokhara. It's not just the Lake and mountains but birds too! You can even share your airspace with the Himalayan griffin vultures and eagles as you fly by. The whole experience is just in awe. The Paragliding trip in Pokhara goes on for 30 minutes but you can also choose to extend the flight as per your interest. The peak season for bookings matches the normal tourist season in Nepal, i.e. September/October/November and February/March. The fall months are the clearest and best time to visit Nepal where thermals develop quickly with easy and high flying of up to 3000 m.

Symptoms of Altitude Sickness may start once you reach 1500-2000 meters and upwards. If you gain altitude rapidly without letting your body adapt to the thin oxygen at higher altitudes, you are most likely to suffer from Altitude Sickness. But if you plan for acclimatization days to your itinerary, you are good to go.
The itinerary includes acclimatization days to avoid Altitude Sickness. The sickness is common at high altitudes. Please note that sickness is a topic to be taken very seriously. Here are some few extra preventions:
- Avoid climbing rapidly, give your body some time to adjust
- Drink more water, not less than 5 liters a day
- Eat more, eat often, and eat healthily
- Listen to your body, do not ignore symptoms
- Do not skip acclimatization days
- Be prepared in case of an emergency
