Paragliding In Nepal

It is the monsoonal climate that makes Nepal such a great place to fly. The high rainfall in the summer and the latitude of the country means that the tree line is at an incredible 3900m. With a subtropical climate there are no prevailing or valley winds, it is pure thermic flying, milder than late summer alpine conditions. Once the monsoon has left the conditions are seriously constant.

The season runs from early October until the beginning of May. The most popularmonths are November, December and January, because of the super consistent weather during this time. On average over the past 4 seasons these months have only had 3 out of 90 days non flyable. For the entire 2001-2002 season, we did not fly on 9 days out of 7.5 months!! This means you get to do a lot of flying.

The best XC months are February and March, when cloudbase is highest and the mild conditions of the previous 3 months pick up.

This data had been compiled over 10 years of living and flying in the Annapurna region of Nepal.
The flying figures are based on daily records for Sarangkot, Pokhara.
