Sachi was a hilarious and very fun pilot! We had a great time together singing Celine Dion and Katy Perry in the air. He gave me a wonderful full 30 min flight complete with acrobatics over the lake. An incredible first time experience. My tip for future adventurers would be to reserve the earliest flight time so that you have... More

We had a great experience with Sunrise Paragliding. Rain forced the cancellation of our first booking and, although fully booked for the only other day we could make, the staff were extremely helpful and managed to find us a slot. The instructors were professional and pleasant, and we had a fantastic experience. However, one of our group suffered from motion... More

My wife force me on this. The drive up the hill was a bit scary. once we were up there, the instructor, told me "just take three steps and jump when I ask you too and leave the rest on me." So I did. the view was mesmerizing is all that I can say!!!

So I was not really excited about going paragliding because I was pretty nervous about it and the staff made it a great experience! They were very patient in explaining how things worked and all the safety backups that they never had to use (like the pilots have a parachute on them). They are also good at asking what each...

From the moment my instructor, Herve, asked if I was nervous (a little), he set out to make the paraglide a magical experience. Counsellor voice, clear, calm instruction, perfect take off and landing, astounding views, actually soaring with an eagle, all came together to make an incredible experience. This one experience is reason enough to come to Nepal!

I was lucky enough to be able to experience paragliding with Sunrise. They are a professional outfit and their primary concerns are your safety and enjoyment. I was also lucky enough to get Milan to take me on this joyride. He was a true professional as I threw up half way through my flight. he had a plastic bag to... More

The great physical setting as pew ell as the friendship offered in the neighborhood. Many areas of the world I have traveled I have felt rather hated for being an American or something or other, tolerated only for my dollars. Here It was totally genuinely friendly. I love it

We were unfortunate with the weather and tried to rebook our flight for 3 times. Still we did not manage to have a flight. Despite that, we have been once on Sarangkot, had a nice talk with the pilots and come down. We were honestly told that the flight would be only downwards and the conditions are not good enough...
