          Disappointed.
          Parts of this walk was fabulous. But if has known how much would be on road we would have done the walk. Further we told that we would not be able to visit the religious site - but then we’re pressured to do that. At times we felt as if we were being asked to support our guides children into going to university in our country and to stay in our guides guest house should we return. We were hoping for a quiet walk - not what we got.

          Average hike around Nagarkot
          My wife and I wanted to hike around the area of the Fort at Nagarkot. We met up with our guide Govinda who took us on a two and a half hour circular trail around the gazetted Nature trail and Panorama trail at Nagarkot. Although the forest and view of the Himalayan range were outstanding, we were hoping to get a bit more local knowledge and history of the local area from our guide. We basically just followed the guide around the trail. The trail was easy to follow and the hotel we were staying at (Fort Resort) supplied us a free walking trail map with the trails marked on them. You could easily navigate the walking trail without a guide, however it is always good to have a guide to ensure you are following the correct path and hopefully give you some local insight. We didn't bring along a water bottle as we were expecting to be given the "included" bottle of water from the guide, which didn't happen, so ensure you bring water with you.

          Great view
          Govinda is the one who are guide me. He made my trek a very memorable and great experience. Though it was my first time hiking outside other country and I was alone. He made me feel comfortable and safe. What an incredible view of sunrise from Nagarkot hill station. Its beautiful sunrise comes from the Himalayan region. Definitely recommend visit this beautiful part while in Kathmandu.

          Paragliding Experience
          Myself and a friend of mine had a really good experience with this company. We wanted to paraglide in Pokhara but didn't have time so were looking for an alternative. They organised our transport to reach Nagarkot from Kathmandu which made everything a lot easier for us as getting to Nagarkot can be a bit of an issue. They then to take you from Nagarko to the paragliding spot. The team who did the paragliding with us were all very nice and the paragliding itself was amazing, also go pro footage and photos are included in the price which was great. Overall the price is very reasonable for the experience and if looking for an alternative to travelling to Pokhara for paragliding would definitely recommend this company.

          Lovely hike at Nagrakot
          This was a lovely tracking route that I highly recommend for everyone. We got a wonderful breathtaking view of the himalaya.

          Nagarkot Sunrise view
          Had an excellent visit to view the sunrise at the Club Himalaya Hotel Nagarkot location. Sunrise was at 5.10am. We took plenty of pictures with the magnificent views and had an excellent breakfast at Club Himalaya Hotel.

          Great
          The team were very prompt and super professional. Lovely guys who obviously knew what they were doing! We were only in the air for ten minutes but apparently that's because the winds weren't good. Wouldn't hesitate to fly with these guys again!

          Safety first
          We traveled a good hour from our hotel in Nagarkot to get to take off point. After an intense briefing by Bijay, a paraglider was sent off to monitor the wind. A little later I was advised that the wind was not strong enough to take my weight of 88kgs during landing. After a quick sulk, I regained my composure as I was impressed that such strict safety standards were practiced by the team. They did not want to take the risk of harming their passengers, even though the money was tempting. I was pleasantly surprised and I thank Bijay for the honesty and steadfastness in keeping up to standards.

          Nice and happy bunch of pilots
          Pick us up at our hotel and proceed to the takeoff location which is close to half an hour away. The flight/pilots were great with video/photo taken inclusive of the fees. Even our eleven years old daughter can do it without a scratch. (I had a hard landing so scratch my palm a tiny bits) It's an experience of a lifetime.

          Must TRY experience and a Memorable Moment!!! Paragliding Engagement Proposal!!
          It's a bird!!! t's a plane!!! No, it's just me! hahaha!!! It was a great memorable experience! In fact, I do have fear of heights but it's part of my bucket list. I had this experience recently - Aug 31, 2018. Nepal weather is unpredictable that's why Caron keeps on reminding me that the activity will depends on the weather. I kept my fingers cross and prayed for the good weather. Well....YES!!! It's an answered prayer and the sun rises at it's finest! During the glide I decided to the my engagement proposal with help of Caron's team!!! I would like to commend Caron's responsive replies and flexibility even in a short notice. He's very accommodating and his team's support and during the activity and entire proposal are commendable! As I do have fear of heights but Bobby (my pilot) and Ajay makes me sure that I'm on the safe hands. And YES! I did it!!.....360 breathtaking views and I am literally touching the clouds and higher than the flying eagle that time..hahaha! The glide was great and proposal was successful as well! Thank you Caron and tou your team for making that moment possible and memorable! Is it indeed a moment that will never forget. Keep it up and more Blessings to you and your team!! By the way...if you are planning to visit Nagarkot and planning to do paragliding better stay at Peaceful Cottage and you can contact Caron's directly for booking and guide you.
