 Hang gliding/ Ultra gliding

Hang gliding is an air-sport or recreational activity in which a pilot flies a light, non-motorised foot-launched heavier-than-air aircraft called a hang glider. Most modern hang gliders are made of an aluminium alloy   or composite frame covered with synthetic sailcloth to form a wing. Typically the pilot is in a harness suspended from the airframe, and controls the aircraft by shifting body weight in opposition to a control frame.

Early hang gliders had a low lift to drag opposite, so pilots were restricted to gliding down small hills. By the 1980s this ratio significantly improved, and since then pilots can soar for hours, gain thousands of feet of altitude in thermal updrafts, perform aerobatics, and glide cross-country for hundreds of kilometers. Due to the poor safety record of early hang gliding pioneers, the sport has traditionally been considered unsafe. Advances in pilot training and glider construction have led to a much improved safety record. Although lightweight they can be easily damaged, either through misuse or by continued operation in unsafe wind and weather conditions. All modern gliders have built-in dive recovery mechanisms such as luff lines in kingposted gliders, or "sprogs" in topless gliders.

The 60 minutes flight can be made with open and close aircraft. This flight offers you the panoramic view of Annapurna Range in addition to the foothills of Mt. Fishtail. The Pokhara valley, Phewa lake, and it is surrounding by beauty other attractions.
Finally, the 90 minutes flight can be done only with the close aircraft. With this flight, you will fly inside the Annapurna Circle and from Manaslu to Dhaulagiri Mountains. The flight passes by Mt. Fishtail. It is an excellent flight for mountain view, the natural beauty of Pokhara, including its surrounding villages, hills and the lakes.
