Nepal... An epicenter of dramatic news that moved everyone of us so deeply. We were there exactly one year ago to fly around Pokhara and trek in the surroundings of Manaslu and Gorkha... Perrine had already been working on a development project in the villages of the Annapurna Conservation Area, and has found herself a welcoming family, many acquaintances, and loving friends. How is the local population going to endure the three month monsoon period without being able to work in the fields or even shelter from the rain? Short term survival and access to drinking water are absolutely critical for all of these remote villages that don’t attract any media attention or even any medical assistance. The country’s people have lost a great deal but certainly not their kindness, their warm sense of welcome or the beauty of their environment. So open the door of Nepal..... and you’ll want to come back!
Paragliding in Nepal means discovering its many facets. When landing in remote valleys, we have always been met with an enthusiastic, warm and interested welcome. Our encounters with a smiling people attached to their cultural heritage and values remain deeply engraved in our heart. We not only met local pilots and discovered beautiful flying sites but also people in love with Nepal and its emblematic birds. Talking about Nepal and boosting tourism are the best ways to help rebuild the country.
