10 day tours offer you a fantastic introduction
to flying in the Nepal Himalaya. Do not think
that you have to be full on comp pilot to
fly here. The truth is that almost any level
of experience will see you equally enjoying
the pilot friendly conditions that this unique
subtropical climate provides.
Club Pilot +25 hours will see
you thermalling easily in the company of the
Himalayan Griffin Vultures. The months we
fly mean that there are no valley or prevailing
winds and the snow-clad giants are at their
most pristine. Surprisingly, very little walking
is done on these tours. Just a short walk
each morning to Takeoff and then you let your
wing do the work! The basic tour looks something
You will be met at the airport and spend a
night inKathmandu before being flown to Pokhara
aboard a Twin Otter STOL aircraft. The views
of the mountains during the flight are incredible.
The beautiful lakeside town of Pokhara, nestled
at the foot of the Annapurna massif, is dwarfed
by 3 of the highest mountains in the world.
Here we will introduce you to
the Himalaya with a few days flying spectacular
sites around the valley and lake. From Pokhara
we set off on a 5 day paratrek with Sherpas
to carry our equipment, set-up camp and cook
us some amazing food. So all you have to do
is relax and think of flying these incredible
mountains. After dinner in the mess tent,
it is normal for the entire village to come
and welcome us in the traditional way, with
a night of singing and dancing, under the
stars and around the camp fire. A fantastic
way to end a days flying.
Before flying back to Kathmandu
you have a couple more days soaking up the
extremely relaxed atmosphere of Pokhara, flying
the sites we didn't manage to catch before.
We will have porters to carry all our equipment
