What people are saying about Pokhara

The ride was amazing, it was my first time to experience paragliding. I planned and booked y ride early on and it was very well handled by all the teams involved. Nabin Pandey was especially the one to highlight, he managed all the communications and kept me updated on my paragliding. He made sure that I was picked up from Pokhara Airport (I only visited for 3 hours to do paragliding). He also made sure that I get a ride back to the airport as well. Last but not the least was my Pilot, Suraj. He took care of me on the ride and ensured that it went smooth and we landed safely after 30 minutes. Thanks a lot for a wonder full experience. Keep up the good work Nepal Social and Get your Guide....Looking forward for more travels and activities in 2023.
