Journey to Bhutan Tours & Travels

Co-Owner Karma Tshering, the only licensed paragliding pilot in Bhutan, trained with Adam Hill of Frontiers Paragliding and later he and Adam conducted a detailed aerology and feasibility tour and designed this itinerary based on their findings. The Jakar and Ura valleys are also filled with old temples and picturesque villages, and as a paraglider in Bhutan you will be one of the few people in the world to ever see Bhutanese valleys from the unique vantage point in the sky. Landing zones are large and open, free of overhead wires, and the take offs are equally comfortable. There are often long hikes to the TOs, but we always include local porters in the package so you can focus on enjoying the hike instead of carrying your heavy glider. We have one fixed itinerary, but we are open to developing more during this season. It is even possible to arrange single or couple paraglider tours and, with enough prior arrangement, we can arrange special tandem trips as well. Just send us an email! 

However, due to introduction of domestic air service in the same air space paragliding service has been suspended until further notice
