Nepal Paragliding Day 2

Posted by

Day Two and Three in Pokhara gave us a low cloudbase making thermalling difficult, but we managed to climb out, max base 2500mtrs giving us some short cross country flights. Landing out over here is a real cultural experience seeing villagers at work cultivating the paddy fields. Then the jeep ride back is a white knuckle experience in its self.

The inversion means that the house thermal can get crowded - flying wing tip to wing tip with in the crowd was a new experience for some, but everyone followed the turn direction and helped each other to centre on the lift.

This morning is looking the clearest its been with a view of the Himalayas - Fish Tail and the Annapurna peaks in sight. So we'll be going for big distance today.
