Fly and Glide

In addition to the many terrestrial and aquatic adventures that Nepal has to offer, it is also possible to enjoy the several types of airborne activities available in this part of the Himalayas. The mountains provide unparalleled opportunities for above-the-ground excitement  - Paragliding, Ultralite flights, Everest Mountain flights by plane or helicopter, Hot Air Ballooning and even bungee jumping through thin air or swinging up a mountain in a cable car – each activity guaranteed to get the adrenalin moving in one way or another.

Paragliding and Ultralite flight aircraft, in addition to hot-air balloons, allow especially good views of the mountains, and  Mountain flights enable you to experience the closest possible bird's eye appreciation of Mt. Everest and other peaks. Bunjee jumping entails plummeting through the rushing air on the end of a very thick rubber rope, while the only cable car in Nepal will take you up to Manakamana without the effort of many hours very hard, upward trekking to reach your cultural goal.
