Ultra light Aircraft Flight! Fly for Fun!
Nepal is not only the trekker’s destination but also the country of water and air adventure enthusiastic where you can fly for whole 10 months in a year from low land to magnificent snow caped white Himalayas. This particularly planned program is focused on Ultralight flying experience along with local sightseeing of Kathmandu and Pokhara. Ultralight aircraft take off from Pokhara airport and offer spectacular views of the lakes, mountains and villages. This is an ideal way to see life from a new perspective. The choice of Pokhara Valley for ultralight aircraft is appropriate chiefly because of the proximity of the mountains, and the beautiful lakes. For those who wished they could fly like birds when growing up, this flight is a must. It might be lonely at the top, but the spectacular view from up high certainly makes it all worth it. Flights are from the Pokhara airport beginning September through June. The flights take place from sunrise to 11 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to sunset every day during these months.

Name of Flight: Into the Heart of the Mountain
Flight Duration: 90 minutes flight
Flight Cost: USD 445.00 Airport Tax: NPR 200.00 will be charged at the airport.
Though our A-22 is available for our popular 30min and 60min flights, it’s best attraction is the 90min “Into the heart of the mountain” flight which takes you deeper and closer to the Himalayan giants than anything else while allowing ample time to enjoy the sights. You’ll fly past remote mountain villages that even trekking will miss. The experience of being surrounded by the Himalayas is a once in a lifetime experience.
Don’t mistake this for just a mountain flight. This is you, the pilot and the mountains. There are no tiny portals to impair your view, no other passengers to distract you from what you see. Passengers who’ve flown on this flight described it simply as “Bliss”!
