Being scared of heights, paragliding was the one of the challenging experience in my life. I was extremely scared, but Poonam was great. She communicates very easily via email and when we went to see her in the morning, she was extremely sweet. She told me not to worry. It really helped. My pilot Ben was a gem of a... More

I flew with phoenix couple of weeks ago and it was really great experience. The pilot as well as the staffs were really friendly and excellent at their jobs. Though the wind got quite uncommunicative while landing, he landed me safely. I recommend phoenix to everyone who are seeking to fly safe and have really great fun while flying.

i did paragliding with my husband in Pokhara. We did it with Phoenix Paragliding and it was very exciting and wonderful experience. We flew from Sarangkot and landed near by the lake.

Jochen was an excellent host and pilot! He drove with my girlfriend and me up to the top of Sarankot, where we met the other pilot. Very smooth take-off, wonderful long trip (>30 minutes even for the 15-30 minute trip), terrific views of the entire Pokhara area and adjacent Himalayas). Best price we were able to find, and the pictures/videos... More

My partner sent me paragliding for my birthday and the whole team made it extra special. My tandem guy was Austrian and full of knowledge, fantastic experience. He let me wear my birthday hat on top of my helmet and took some great photos. Would definitely recommend:)
