Stop 3: Pokhara
For a long time I have dreamed of this city. Why? Simply because it is located at the gates of the famous Annapurna trail, I love paragliding and I have always idealized this city. Located next to a beautiful lake, where on clear days the mountains are reflected in its calm waters, it is the city for adventure lovers.
The city itself emanates a certain charm, which is why it is imperative to indulge in its many activities (paragliding, trekking, etc.) or to have fun while staying in one of the finest resorts in the country: the Tiger Mountain Resort.
Paragliding in Pokhara
In the recent years, I have become a lover of paragliding. I made my first jump 3 years ago in Manali, a beautiful hill station in the North Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. I knew without question that I would be renewing my experience again here! Paragliding can be open to almost EVERYONE, barring children, people with heart problems or vertigo and elderly people. On your initial voyages you will be flying in tandem with an experienced guide and within a few minutes you will be hovering over terrace cultivations, mountains and the lake. Whether you are 15 or 75 years old, you should definitely try paragliding!
Where to stay
Unquestionably, the Tiger Mountain Lodge! A gem nestled amidst the mountains, 30 minutes from the city center and perched atop a mountain, you can feel ‘at home’ in this resort. The personalized welcome by Marcus, the manager, will quickly gain your confidence while you are introduced to the philosophy of the place.
These are several bungalows, hidden in nature, each offering privacy and privileged interaction with nature. The view is simple breathtaking.
During the day you can step out into the city with a local guide or enjoy the family pool in the resort. The strength of this place is not only its location, which is amazing, but also high quality service that is worthy of the finest accommodations in the world.
