Paragliding in Chitwan in the offing

Kathmandu: The popular tourist destination of Chitwan is most likely to witness paragliding flights with effect from April 14,2023 with a view to replace the Pokhara for paragliding.

Pokhara city has been well known as the major tourist hub and tourist capital until this day.  However,after the launch of regional international airport in Pokhara, the paragliding activities near by have almost been shut down for the sake of flight safety of air-crafts.

In the event of such circumstances, Chitwan can replace Pokhara city by being one of the alternative destinations for paragliding flights and adventure tourism activities according to Bijaya Ghale, the chairperson of Himalayan Frontiers Paragliding Company Pvt Ltd.

Ghale further said the para gliders will take off from Chaukidanda and Kabilas of Bharatpur Metropolis, Chitwan and land on the bank of the Trishuli River in Devghat near Tanahun district.

The company says the test flights have been most successful and plans are underway to invest at least 700 million in developing infrastructures for paragliding from Chitwan and 10 pilots in the first phase will be hired for paragliding flights.
