A unique concept created by Scott Mason in 2001 in Nepal, parahawking combines falconry and paragliding for an Avatar- esque adventure.
I cannot recommend it enough… peaceful, beautiful, exciting, tranquil… life at its finest!
I feel a bit nostalgic watching the video now .. and try to transport my mind back up to being high in the sky surrounded by the sunshine and mountains, feeling weightless…. :-)

Here is a short video/ photo montage I put together with my [very basic] imovie skills
Just to share with you some of the beauty of Nepal :-)
The song you hear is called ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’, which is a very famous Tibetan mantra.. they believe that reading, speaking, singing these words can empower you.. and I have had the song in my head since I heard it coming from a small music shop in Bakhtapur! :)
I hope some of you can make it to Nepal one day, it is truly worth it!
Spiritually charged after visiting Nepal, birth place of the Buddha and home to the mighty Himalayas.
I spent 9 days there in total. A few days in Kathmandu- Thamel & Bhaktapur, a few nights at the lovely Maya Devi Village alongside Lake Dewa in Pokhara, and a once- in- a lifetime- experience 4 days trekking around Ghandruk, Deorali and Banthati up to Gurung Hill (by Poon Hill)- around 11,000 ft high!
The people, the culture, the way of life is all beautiful,, and the views put the AWE into awesome!
(sorry- I just had to!)
Here are some highlights–>
