Hello internet welcome to my channel See the world with Salil We are on the top of Sarangot mountain, Pokhara We are waiting here for the pilot to go for paragliding There are flying stations of different heights, 7000 to 8000 Indian Rupees is the normal rate. Different companies are running this, they have pilots based upon the commissions They are giving money for each flight So they should bring themselves the gears and gliders The cost of a glider is 3.5 lakh Indian Rupees onwards If the climate is bad they won’t get their money that day That is our pilot, Shankar The video is taken in the guide’s mobile, so there’s a little problem with the clarity First of all they tell us all the instructions First keep two steps forward And then two steps backward and run straight forward Then we should not stop without fear just jump and then the pilot will take us forward Then the view is unbelievable Paragliding can be started only when the wind is good The pilot also waited for that The wind came and took up Paragliding in Nepal is possible only in Pokhara it’s here everytime in a year 2 or 3 months there is a season of this in Wagamon The advantage is that when there is more sunlight the blade heats up so we can fly at more height today there is more sunlight so Shankar bro took more higher I cannot show that because my camera was off at that time We feel like a flying bird when we are sitting in this we can get a bird’s eye view from here The feels at that time cannot be expressed through words you can only get that feel by doing it to do paragliding was one of my life’s greatest desire anyways i have achieved that I can put a tick for that looking from above the airport, Phewa lake , the place we went last day World Peace Stupa can all be seen from above Ratheesh’s pilot showed him his acrobatic skills and made him go round he made him go round in 180 degrees my pilot also did the same but the camera was off so i was not able to show you all that experience too cannot be expressed through words 25 to 30 minutes is the normal flight it is landed at the side of a lake that is Ratheesh coming if it is a experienced pilot we get a perfect landing like a flight this is the place after landing from the view, this is Phewa Lake there was short delay for our driver to come so we saw the fishing for sometime and then we walked next we are going to the International Mountain Museum now we can have some mountain talks this is the International Mountain Museum it was opened officially on 5th February 2004 but it opens and functions for 365 days it is from morning 8 to evening 6 for Indians , Nepali rupees 250 that is people from Saarc countries for foreigner’s, Nepali Rupees 500 is the entrance fees the country Nepal is not known to the people of other countries we know because its our neighbouring country but its not like that for people of other regions but everyone in the world knows what is Mt.
