Who We Are

For everyone that has enjoyed a tandem flight with us, learned to fly under our instructors, there is one thing we hear consistently: "You have the best job in the world." We don't take this comment lightly, and even after hearing it a thousand times it is a nice reminder of how privileged we are to be able to make our passion our profession. It speaks a lot for our team for this passion to still remain after all these years. In fact, it grows with almost every flight. Nothing compares to the feeling of soaring freely with the birds over one of the most picturesque landscapes on earth, and with each joyful shout from a passenger that leaves the ground for the first time, or a student that has made their first successful landing, our passion is recharged. We are the first paragliding company in Nepal, and with 20 years of experience our knowledge of the local flying conditions is unmatched. Paragliding, like everything in life, is constantly evolving, and we are committed to guiding the growth of it here in Nepal in the most professional, safe, and enjoyable way possible. We take our title as "The Paragliding Pioneers of Nepal" very seriously, and are constantly searching for new flying routes, sites, and ways to improve to ensure the adventuresome spirit that gave birth to this sport is alive and well for years to come.

If you have dreamed of flying, let us help you make your dream come true.

There are many paragliding shops in Pokhara and we stumbled onto this one by chance while walking the main street at Lakeside. What a lucky find - they were extremely professional, have decades of flying experience, and the best female pilot in Nepal. If you're on the fence on paragliding in general or who to do it with, go with... More

A "3" is average, so this is not a flaming review. I was torn between 2 and 3. The good was that they took my son on short notice, the people in the office were friendly, and the pilot, Sarat(sp?), provided a good briefing to my son at Sarangkot. I was confident he was in good hands in terms of... More

We choose Sunrise Paragliding thanks to ratings and comments, and we did the right choice, everything was in line with expectations, from the start at agency, to the transportation to take off points, to the flight and landing. Our pilots were just great!

Highly recommend these guys! Professional pilots. My sister and I had a great time. My sister was especially impressed with having Teressa (the 1st Nepalese female paragliding pilot!) take her on her journey. I was lucky to have Rajesh who ensured he showed me the relaxing side and extreme side of paragliding! AWESOME!

Today was my first tandem paragliding flight. An amazing experience. My pilot Rajesh who owns the company was fantastic, very experienced and safety conscious. I would strongly recommend this company for anyone wanting to experience the serenity of floating in the thermals over Pokhara. The best $100 spent in Nepal. Ian Australia

it was a beautiful experience, i did paragliding at Manali, India also but the flow and height we get in pokhara was fantastic, my pilot did Helicopter specially for me as they dont do that for tourist. Thanks Madan for special treatment, Rs.3600 IC they have charged per person and its worth doing.

I went for the (45 min') countryside paragliding trip. It was AMAZING. *My instructors - Suvaj & Raj were SO good. Really accomodating, very experienced and spoke English well. I'd definitely recommend Sunrise Paragliding to anyone going to Pokhara. 👍

Great chill people. Recommend it everyone. Only reason for 4 stars is that it is slightly more expensive

One of the first paragliding companies in Pokhara and highest rated. Due to cloudy weather they suggested to reschedule my flight to the next day, which was the perfect call (even though other companies flew). My pilot Suraj Thapa was great, experienced, funny, explained everything, made sure I was completely comfortable, and brought me even up into a cloud! Very... More
