Paragliding in Bandipur

Paragliding in Bandipur

Posted May 25th, 2011 under Tourism News, Travel Guide,

Come August, the sky in the hill-top town of Bandipur, will be open for paragliding. Bluesky Paragliding, a Pokhara based paragliding operator is preparing to launch commercial paragliding in Bandipur from August 2011. The company has received permission from Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoTCA) to operate tandem as well as solo flights from Bandipur. Bandipur, a small hill-top town in Tanahun district was a Magar settlement. Newari traders from Bhaktapur migrated to Bandipur during the reign of Prithvi Narayan Shah and transformed  this town into  a trading point on the Nepal- Tibet trade route . The well preserved ancient town lies 143 km to the west of Kathmandu and 73 km to the east of Pokhara, above the Marshyangdi river. This town, with its old world charm and scenic mountain views, has become quite popular among tourists.
