The flying platform

Eyad getting brief by the instructor

Ready to fly

So many paraglides!

Gaining momentum at the village

Eyad & Me

From Sarangkot hill

Lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure

Paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of km

Eyad preparing for takeoff

My instructor preparing my takeoff

Wow flying!

The paraglide flying platform

My instructor told me he forgot the camera after we take off

So these are photos from my iPhone

Sarangkot and peak of Fish Tail Mt

Terrace field

Back side for Sarangkot hill

Pretty cool

3 out of the 10 highest mountains in the world are situated within 50 miles

Beautiful landscape

Small mountain range

Instructor & Me

Pokhara is the second largest city by population of Nepal

Other paraglider

My shadow

We played in the morning as weather is usually better

Amazing view from the paraglide

Landing ground

Paragliding is so easy and not scary at all

Professional photo

If my instructor remembers to bring the camera

All back safe in one piece

Paragliding rocks!

Nice handicraft
