Take a Bhutan paragliding trip and you’ll be flying over one of the world’s most mysterious corners. Tucked up high in the Himalayas, it is a place very few travellers make it to. Join them, and you’ll get to see breathtaking mountain peaks and valleys and enjoy a culture rich in myth, legend and warmth. A Bhutan paragliding trip is certainly one to remember.
The Kingdom of Bhutan borders India, Nepal and Tibet. It has a reputation as a difficult and expensive place to visit. We think that’s great: Bhutan will stay at its best if it stays a well-kept secret. Visitors are asked to pay a $200 daily fee, but it includes all meals, accommodation and guides. It’s just Bhutan’s way of looking after its guests! It does mean that you can’t go solo, but you’ll need someone to show you the ropes to get the best out of the place.
If you want to fly, travel in September and October. The rest of the year, snow or monsoon rain makes flying impossible. It’s worth the wait. You’ll fly over deep valleys which have rarely been seen by anyone who lives outside them, peppered with tiny villages and ancient temples. You’ll see mountain lakes, waterfalls and untouched forests. You won’t need to worry about getting caught in a pylon: there aren’t any. Bhutan is a magical, mystical place that you’ll never forget.
A Bhutan paragliding trip must be top of any real adventurer’s bucket list. The Himalayas in general are an incredible place to fly, but Bhutan is just that little bit more special than its neighbours. Get there and take it in…
