Parahawking is the art of training birds of prey to fly with paragliders, it was developed and pioneered in 2001 in Pokhara. By combining paragliding with the ancient art of falconry, birds of prey are trained to fly with pilots, and guide them to thermals and even perform aerobatic manoeuvres.

Parahawking in Nepal
Tuesday, 22.12.2009

Eagles, kites and vultures are natural soaring birds, together with paragliders they use thermals to fly long distances whilst conserving energy. The trained birds are no different, they will utilise the thermals and guide pilots to them, then be rewarded in the air for their efforts. The ultimate flying companion.
