Ultra light aircraft was introduced in Nepal in 1996 and has been offering zipping sky tours in and around Pokhara valley from Pokhara airport. Due to the wonderful proximity of the mountains and the scenic Fewa lake, Pokhara is the appropriate place for this activity as these white pea shaped aircraft share airspace with Himalayan griffin vultures, eagles, kites and float over villages like lazy well fed vultures; the aircraft also fly over monasteries, temples, lakes and jungles with a fantastic view of the regal Himalayas.
For those who imagine and seek to fly like birds, this flight is a must. The flights are operated in the morning from sunrise till 11am and from 3pm till sunset in the months from September till June. It flies at the speed of 50-130kms/hr depending on wind direction and speed. These super light aircraft can even take off and land in a field or on a dirt road. The aircraft seats two; a passenger and a pilot only. Make your ultra move in one of these super duper ultra light aircraft to pull the curtains on your trek or a holiday in this city of lakes…on your way home, you could simply hum to yourself with the song, ‘what a wonderful world’’…
