Alongside the Annapurna Range, between Mustang Himal and Manaslu Himal, lies the picturesque town of Pokhara. The Pokhara region, an excellent viewpoint summits of Dhawalagiri (8167 m/26794 ft), Machhapuchre (7059 m/23159 ft) and Manaslu (8163 m/26781 ft), becomes the last years a hot destination for paragliding and parahawking.

Currently, parahawking in Pokhara is undoubtedly the must-to-do activity and an unforgettable joyride. Never before has an outdoor activity brought so close a human to such a magnificent bird. In Pokhara, since 2001, special trained birds of pray, usually falcons and Egyptian vultures, are the guides of paragliding flights!

These trained vultures are the guides and the probes for the best thermal currents, assisting the pilot to enjoy the best possible flight. By soaring around the pilot, the bird will guide you and join you in an unforgettable experience!

During the flight the bird will sit on your hand several times to enjoy its meal, fairly earned.

Don’t miss the opportunity to experience this unique feeling!
