1. The fun flight (15 minutes): This flight takes you over Pokhara city, Phewa lake, near Sarangkot hill, over the Buddha Monastery and to the south side of the city. This short flight will give you a panoramic view of the whole Annapurna range, with a view of another 8000m peak- Dhaulagiri, in the distance. A great way to see Pokhara for those with limited time.
2. Pokhara-A birds' eye view (30 minutes): This fight gives you a wider view of one of the most beautiful cities of Nepal from higher up. You will fly over the Tibetan Refugee camp and further on to Lamachaur, on the northern part of the Valley. The view is awesome.

3. Sky Trek (1 hour): If you have trekked around Nepal, this will complement the trip.

Flying at an altitude of 9,000 ft above sea level, you will fly close to the Fishtail Mountain, and over the hidden Seti Valley. This is one flight you will not regret making as you will go back with memories of glorious views.
