Owner description: Established in 1996 - Pioneer of Air-sports activities in Nepal! The most experienced flying company (over 20 years of glorious flying) in Nepal. Avia Club Nepal offers you thrilling Ultralight and Paragliding flights over Pokhara city and flights that will take you directly into the heart of the Himalaya to see the snowy peaks of Annapurna. If you want to visit the jungle, our pilots will take you to Chitwan, a national recreation area, where you can enjoy the elephant ride and see a lot of wildlife of Nepal in their natural habitat. If you are a skydiver, we can offer you an aircraft that will take you as high as 12,000 ft (3,600 meters) to do the parachute jump. Remember to take your family members and friends with you to enjoy these wonderful moments. During the flight, our pilots will perform photo and video shooting yet you are welcome to use your own video equipment as well. Flight duration from 15 to 90 minutes. If you desire to become an Ultralight pilot, Avia Club Nepal has a flying school certified by Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal where experienced instructors will teach you to fly flex-wing Ultralight, 3-axis Aeroprakt A-22L or a paraglider.

“Absolutely Awesome!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

This was my first paraglide experience, and it was amazing. I was slightly nervous in the beginning, but my pilot took all my concerns away.

The glide couldn't have been smoother, and towards the end if you're feeling comfortable enough ask for a little bit of "acrobatics" in the air! A few sharp turns and twists will send shivers down your spine (good ones!).

p.s.: my tandem/pilot was Ronald Mendoza, whom I of coarse strongly recommend, especially if this is your first time. Thank you for making it such an unforgettable experience!

“Thrilling Flight Experience !”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

I took a "Mountain Flight" in Kathmandu, which was also so fantastic flight experience.
However, this paragliding engine flight is much more thrilling and fantastic because there are
only a friendly and cheerful pilot and me in the small, cute plane with para glider. We can fly much
closer and look at steep mountains just below us. It's a must for a tourist in Pokhara !
It was a rainy season, but in Autumn season, it's perfect for the flight by Avia club.

“Favorite part of Pokhara!”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

This was a blast! My opinion was probably helped by the combination of ideal weather and my wonderful South American pilot Claudio, who instilled confidence.

The location of the large, friendly, and professional-looking Avia Club office, right on the main road, made it easy to walk to from most anywhere in the area.

The office itself felt just a little bit disorganized (I had to wait to pay for the optional photo-video CD afterward) but not all that badly since it all got done. They even hand-delivered it to my hotel later.

The ride up all bundled in a pick-up truck with your group of flyers was all part of the adventure. But the paragliding itself was done calmly and professionally. Doing this was a highlight of my time in Pokhara.
