Miyamoto report on Annapurna Nepal Now, latest facts
Miyamoto report on Annapurna Nepal Now, latest facts Location: Annapurna | Type: Adventure, Nature Lovers | Tags:NepalNOW, Trek, annapurna, nepal, nepal now The Annapurna region, the most popular tourism destinations of the country, is located in the Himalayas in north-central Nepal. Following the powerful earthquakes of April and May 2015, the extent and severity of earthquake-related structural damage and geologic hazard were widely believed to be limited, but remained unknown. With funding from SAMARTH-NMDP and on behalf of the government of Nepal through the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, an assessment team was dispatched from June 25 to July 2, 2015 to this region to observe and record seismic damages that occurred along the main trekking routes and select villages as a result of the earthquakes. The team was comprised of a structural engineer and an engineering geologist, supported by a professional mountain guide and local conservation officer familiar with the region. The objective of the rapid reconnaissance of the region was to a) develop a baseline understanding of the extent of earthquake-related damage, b) advise on the overall trekking safety of the regionís routes and c) provide recommendations on repairs or risk mitigation that will inform tourism recovery and commercial readiness strategies that are currently being developed by the government, its international development partners, and Nepalís tourism industry at large. The aim of these efforts is to promote tourism back to Nepal which will support the nationís economic recovery. The findings of the structural and geotechnical rapid assessment of the region are summarized in this report.
National Geographic Photographer Accurately Sums Up Why Tourists Revisit Nepal
National Geographic Photographer Accurately Sums Up Why Tourists Revisit Nepal Jonathan Irish, a Contributing Photographer of National Geographic, had visited Nepal in 2007. In an Instagram post published on the official @NatGeoTravel account last evening, he told how eagerly he wants to revisit Nepal and espcially after the devastating quakes. He explained that a tourist visits Nepal to trek the worldís highest mountains but they return because of the amazing people. He also urged the travellers to keep Nepal on the top of their bucket list. Hereís what he originally wrote on the post shared with 4.9 million followers of Nat Geo Travel along with this photograph: cover ďI miss Nepal. There are some places that stay with you for a really long time. For me, Nepal is one of them. I hiked to Everest Base Camp way back in 2007, it has haunted me ever since. Thereís a common saying that goes like this: most people come to Nepal for the mountains, but return for the people. I think thatís really accurate. Walking among the biggest mountains in the world is something special. But itís the amazing people that make this place unforgettable. I need to go back sometime soon and see this beloved country again especially after the devastating earthquakes recently. Now is the time to support Nepal. If you havenít been yet, put it to the top of your bucket list.Ē

Paragliding in PokharaBack

Overview

Discovery tandem flight

From Sarangkot (1500m) to Pokhara (800m), a first flight experience. Feel the sensation of flying in thermal conditions, (rising more than 500 m from the take-off point), from there we fly cross-country with the birds, over the local countryside you will see the rice fields, traditional villages and the people working in the fields, before we fly over the lake, offering the chance to do a little acrobatic flying (if you want to!), before landing beside the lakesid.

First time? No worries, experience is not required! Tandem flying is when a certified pilot flies with a passenger. Both pilot and passenger sit in harnesses that are attached to each other and the wing. A paragliding harness is designed for safety and comfort, and is like sitting in a comfy chair. After an easy take-off, the passenger sits back and relaxes...enjoying the epic scenery and breathing the mountain air.

Bring with you strong shoes, and a windproof jacket.  A calm scenic float, or an acrobatic tumbling routine, your choice...just tell the pilot your preference.
Flights last from 30 minutes to 45 minutes, depending on weather conditions, and you !

Cross country tandem flight

Cross-country flight is for those people who want to experience more about paragliding - to fly into unchartered territory, with only the birds and the wind for company.
Cross country flight is recommended for people who have already flown a tandem flight!

We take off from  Sarangkot (1500m) and dependant upon the weather conditions we can cross the lake, or many of the other unspoiled valleys in the area, following the Seti, or perhaps the Mardi River, reaching altitudes of between 2500m and 3400m before returning to Pokhara by air, or perhaps by bus or taxi!!

One of the best experiences of the Himalayas - everyone should try it once in their lives!!!

Expedition tandem flight

Nearly an expedition!!! We leave early in the morning by bus or taxi, between 1 and 3 hours of  Pokhara to fly over the real Nepal, and try to come back to Pokara by flight.
Or we go from Pokara by fly to sleep in the moutain and come back the next days by fly .

Accro Tandem

If you want to enjoy the latest accro figures this is the one for you! Adrenaline and fun!
