Soaring high in the air above the snow-carpeted mountains is an exhilirating experience. You view some of the best scenes on the earth, from the sky. You share space with the creatures of the air, soaking in the wonderful view of the marvellous Himalayan ranges. We are sure, the feeling you would experience, would be incomparable.

Nepal forms a rectangle on the southern slopes of the Himalaya and is without exception, the most stunning country imaginable. The main area for paragliding is the Pokhara valley, commanding views of 3 of the worlds 8000m peaks with friendly and constant conditions for your paragliding holiday.

Parahawking is a relatively new development in aviation in Nepal. The project has been under construction for some time with the training of the birds but has only just open up to public patronage.

It is the art of training birds to fly along side paragliders, leading them to thermals and performing tricks. Like paragliders, hawks rely on thermals to glide long distances. The hawks are trained to utilize the thermals and guide the paragliders to them.

The birds used are Black Kites, which are particularly agile in flight and very good with tricks and aerial maneuvers.
