Welcome at the Sirkot Flying resort ! All services are provided for paragliding pilots. Our speciality is guiding for an amazing XC flight to reach Pokhara.

Located at the south of Pokhara, it is a journey of 3h driving away from Pokhara (2h over a road and 1h of dirt track). We will take you to a wonderful starting point for an amazing Cross Country flight.

Day 1 : Early morning departure. Once arrived we will aclimate to the local conditions by practicing local flights the whole afternoon. You can either top land at the summit or be driven back from the bottom of the valley by our jeep. We stay over night at the Sirkot Flying Resort.

Day 2 : Breakfast with the most amazing views on the Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu. Briefing and prepare for the big flight !

Departures to the SIRKOT FLYING CENTER are organised directly from Pokhara.

The perfect Cross Country heading to Pokhara. Stop at Killung for a real cultural break. Retrieval by jeep along the length of the road of the open valley.

Pokharā (पोखरा) is where our HQ are based.

David ARRUFAT flew for the first time in this place in october 2003. We then opened and built one take off. In this time we tried to open many new sites around Nepal with belief in air sport development but the Civil Aviation Of Nepal closed the site, and it took a 4 year long procedure to reopen the site In 2011.
