Blue Sky Paragliding
You may have heard of the adventures of Babu and his friend Lakpa earlier this year (vote for them here on Nat Geo.), paragliding from the summit of Everest then kayaking to the Bay of Bengal – Summit to Sea. He also was the first to cross Nepal (not in one go) by paraglider. He works at Blue Sky Paragliding, a Swiss-Nepal venture and we recommend them due to their safety record and attitude to adventure. Nepal Mountain Running Service will be helping Babu learn to run for his future adventures. Blue Sky will offer a ‘good’ discount to Annapurna 100 participants.
