We were a group of 4 people (all boys) from India. We decided to paraglide with Flying Buddha in Pokhara.
We started at around 11 AM. Once we reached the Flying Buddha office, we were driven to the top of the mountain where we would start our flight. The pilots were friendly and we were provided some basic instructions on our way to the top.
Once at the top, the pilots started to prepare for paragliding and lay down all equipment and the parachute. The equipment seemed reliable and safe.
An then it started, we ran down the hill and took off. It was so smooth. We flew and flew and flew.
The pilot (Prem Baser) seemed a fun loving guy and would sing along as we soared across the Pokhara sky. We could see the Phewa Lake, Fishtail mountain and some other peaks while paragliding. Prem kept asking me about my comfort level and accordingly went higher.
All pilots have a Go Pro so that you don't miss out on the memories. The photos and videos came out extremely well.
Towards the end of the flight, while descending, the pilot did some stunts and started rotating at full speed. It was a thrilling experience. We landed smoothly.
We were transferred back to the Flying Buddha office in Pokhara and the experience ended there.
The photos and videos were delivered to out hotel by evening (in a DVD).
What an awesome experience. Must try for anyone in Pokhara.
P.S. Some of the other agencies glide over Phewa Lake and you may want to check them out in case you want to directly glide over Phewa Lake.
Thanks for the experience Prem and entire Flying Buddha Team.
