We take off from Sarangkot and thermal above the valley, sour along pristine ridges of trees, over villages and often hear shouts from below as people stare with wonder at these bird-men circling above them. We end the flight with a glide over the lake, and return via jeep to our main office in Lakeside.
Cross Country (Duration: 45-60 Minute and price: NRs 10,500)
This flight allows you to get a taste of the exploration side of flying. Each day provides slightly different conditions, and even throughout the day it is changing, so routes change accordingly. There is the possibility of soaring along the long ridge leading down the valley past Fewa Lake, with the Annapurna range to your right. Other days we cross the valley and soar directly at these stunning 6,000 m + peaks. We will return and land near the lake where a jeep will be waiting to take us back to our office in Lakeside.
