Paragliding In Kathmandu

1 Day

Paragliding in Kathmandu has become increasingly popular in recent years. Located just an hour away by car in Godawari, this thrilling adventure activity offers breathtaking views of the surrounding area. The flying ground is situated in Chapkharka, a mile away from Godavari, which is home to a well-maintained botanical garden. From this vantage point, paragliders can marvel at the stunning Phulchowki hill, the lush green forest, and the magnificent Kathmandu Valley.

Paragliding in Kathmandu caters to adventure seekers, providing tandem flights operated by professional licensed pilots. Additionally, they offer training courses for those who wish to fly solo. This activity is endorsed by the Nepal Paragliding and Hang-gliding Association (NEPHA) and certified by the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN). The spot itself is located at an impressive altitude of 2,150 meters above sea level.

While the total travel time can range from 4 to 5 hours, including the journey to and from the location, the actual flying time lasts around 20 minutes, with the possibility of extending it up to an hour. For those looking to continue their exploration after the flight, the nearby botanical garden provides an ideal setting.
