Paragliding in Pokhara is the most popular aerial sport activity in the city of Pokhara, Nepal. This beautiful city has stable thermals for easy take-off with safety of large lakes and safe landing sites. It thus makes a very suitable spot for tandem paragliding.

 

Paragliding

Paragliding is the recreational adventure sport of flying paragliders. Additionally, it is a lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. Moreover, the pilot sits in a harness or lies supine in a cocoon-like ‘pod’ suspended below a fabric wing. Despite not using an engine, the paraglider flight in Pokhara can last anywhere from 20-30 minutes. However, it requires a skillful exploitation of lift. During your flight you can sit carefree and enjoy the view, take pictures and even chat with the pilot.

 

The paraglider wing or canopy is usually what is known in engineering as a ram-air airfoil. Such wings comprise two layers of fabric that are connected to internal supporting material in such a way as to form a row of cells. By leaving most of the cells open only at the leading edge, incoming air keeps the wing inflated, thus maintaining its shape. When inflated, the wing’s cross-section has the typical teardrop aerofoil shape. Modern paraglider wings are made of high-performance non-porous materials such as ripstop nylon.
