18 February – Paragliding, Nepal

Pokhara is a lot about paragliding. It is one of the best spots in the world to enjoy flying on the winds. We found an experienced Swedish guide, Peter Olsson, who agreed to fly in tandem with Temba. Nina was very keen as well, so she would go at the same time as Temba.

Temba and Nina jumped off the Sarangkot mountain (1600m) and landed half an hour later on a patch of grass next to the Phewa Lake (800m). They were both extremely excited about the experience! In the pictures below, Temba has the chute with the red front edge, and Nina’s is grey.
In Pokhara you can also paraglide along with falcons, vultures and eagles. That looks awesome! Check it out on
