Ultralight in Pokhara - Emerging Nepal

Ultralight in Pokhara

Exploration in Nepal never gets complete without a visit to Pokhara. Also known as city of lakes, Pokhara is adorned with several big and small lakes and offers striking views of Mountains like Annapurna and Fish Tail. Besides, the picturesque Pokhara valley is conglomerated with cultural heritages of stupas, monasteries and temples. Replacing the classical Pokhara trekking, companies in Pokhara currently provide you with multiple options to explore Pokhara. Paragliding and Ultralight are two of the best ways to view Pokhara.
As the name suggests, it is a very light aircraft. There is no window while it is equipped with two seats- one for the pilot while other one is for a passenger. It differs from paragliding in being an aircraft which is powered by engine as opposed to no engine in paragliding. Besides, it can easily land and take off in any surface whether it is grassland or a muddy road. 

Ultralight is regularly conducted from September to june. It is conducted from Pokhara Airport. Based on the time duration, you get to choose from four different Pokhara Ultralight packages.
The first one is a 15 minutes Ultralight package that offers a short and sweet flight and covers views of Sarangkot, Power House, Phewa Lake, Peace Stupa and many other sites.
30minutes Ultralight is another popular package. You will be taken high above clouds. Experience the closest encounter with Fishtail Mountain and get panoramic views of Sarankot, Annapurna Mountai Range and other lakes and mountains.

60minutes Ultralight takes you in a mountain flight of Annapurna Range and then you will return back to Pokhara Airport with memories of enthralling flight.
90minutes Pokhara Ultralight is the most extensive package which lets you through the suureal journey for which the path stretches through the Manaslu, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Mountain Ranges.
Emerging Nepal can make a complete arrangement for offering you with best Pokhara Ultralight experience.
