Who We Are

For everyone that has enjoyed a tandem flight with us, learned to fly under our instructors, there is one thing we hear consistently: "You have the best job in the world." We don't take this comment lightly, and even after hearing it a thousand times it is a nice reminder of how privileged we are to be able to make our passion our profession. It speaks a lot for our team for this passion to still remain after all these years. In fact, it grows with almost every flight. Nothing compares to the feeling of soaring freely with the birds over one of the most picturesque landscapes on earth, and with each joyful shout from a passenger that leaves the ground for the first time, or a student that has made their first successful landing, our passion is recharged. We are the first paragliding company in Nepal, and with 20 years of experience our knowledge of the local flying conditions is unmatched. Paragliding, like everything in life, is constantly evolving, and we are committed to guiding the growth of it here in Nepal in the most professional, safe, and enjoyable way possible. We take our title as "The Paragliding Pioneers of Nepal" very seriously, and are constantly searching for new flying routes, sites, and ways to improve to ensure the adventuresome spirit that gave birth to this sport is alive and well for years to come.

If you have dreamed of flying, let us help you make your dream come true.

I chose Sunrise based on previous trip advisor reviews and was not disappointed; my pilot, Surjat, was excellent, and clearly explained the harnesses, and take-off procedure. I wasn't nervous at all, and absolutely loved the 30 minute flight from Sangkarot to Pokhara- amazing views over the valley, exhilarating experience, and no bumpy landing either!

Had a great experience with Teresa as my pilot! The company provides excellent service with a friendly attitude! Totally worth the ~$80 for a 20-30min flight. May come back for a second flight if time permits! Check it out if you are in Pokhara and feel like flying!

I had a great time flying for the first time with Trisha here. I was well-briefed, made to feel very comfortable and the staff are very friendly and capable. It was fantastic to see a female pilot - made me very happy. Fully recommend! 5/5 :) Alesha :)

I went paragliding for the first time with Sunrise Paragliding and it was amazing. The staff were super professional and I felt safe the whole time - through briefing, flying and landing. The views were amazing - Pokhara is the perfect place for paragliding!

Great experience with Trisha as the pilot, I felt at ease and trusted her from the first moment. She explained well what to do and what to expect. She found a thermal and got us higher than Sarenkot, following the birds. I highly recommend their organization, everyone was friendly and courteous and I had a great experience!

It was well organised and the instructor Trisha was excellent. She was very friendly and explained what was going to happen well. The equipment was first rate and overall, it was great. There are lots of paragliding outfits in Phokora but this one made me feel as if I was in safe hands.

Paragliding with Sunrise Paragliding was the highlight of my time in Pokhara. From the moment we booked with them, to paragliding over the lake and taking in the sights of the Himalayas, and getting our disc with our photos back at the office was easy and wonderful! Trisha was definitely the highlight of it all though. She is an amazing... More
