WHAT'S A TANDEM FLIGHT?
Tandem flying involves a pilot flying with a passenger.Both have separate harnesses that are attached to each other and to the wing. They are built for comfort and safety, and they feel like an armchair in flight. Once launched the passenger just sits back, relaxes and takes in the epic scenery. You can take pictures yourself, or you can ask your pilot to do all the hard work for you and snap off a round of quality pictures & high definition movies with a GoPro camera. All our pilots use GoPro Hero2/3 cameras and will take a minimum of 50 pictures and 2 movies. For your tandem flight, the journey begins at our offices in Lakeside, where after booking and shortly before departing on your adventure, we show you a brief movie explaining the tandem flight experience and making sure you have the required footwear & clothing for your flight. We then board our jeep, and take a 20min ride up the mountain to the famous viewpoint spot - Sarangkot. This is where we launch from, a spectacular spot 2000ft above and overlooking the Pokhara valley, with 3 of the highest mountains in the world - Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manasulu dominating the skyline to the north. Sarangkot is a world-class paragliding spot & it is an amazing place to experience paragliding for the first time.
The Cloudbuster is our most popular flight. There are 4 departure times throughout the day - at 9.30am, 11am, 12.30pm and 2pm. You don't have to take the whole day out either as our turnaround time is just 2 hours. Perfect if you have a spare afternoon after returning from a trek. With this flight, you can expect the thrill of high flight as we thermal up above Sarangkot in the company of eagles & vultures.
We land by the lake.
