KAVREPALANCHOWK, July 24: The Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation has granted permission to Phulchoki Adventure Pvt Ltd to commercially operate paragliding in the Kushadevi area of Kavrepalanchowk district.
Following this, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has started the technical process, said CAAN officials. "We have got permission from the ministry to operate commercial paragliding. We will operate it after the CAAN issues the paragliding operation directive," said the company's President Chhabi Lal Humagain. It may take around two months for the operation of the project, he added.
The flight will take place on a daily basis from 10AM to 4PM, he said. Three years ago, a test paragliding flight was conducted in the area and it was said to be suitable for the adventure sport in terms of location, landing, air pressure and other environmental aspects, it has been said.
