Paragliding


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

Pretty cool


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


Beautiful landscape

Instructor & Me


Pokhara is the second largest city by population of Nepal

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
