What is Parahawking?

To define this amazing and thrilling activity, would be to imagine falconry with the sport of paragliding and you have the vision of Parahawking! We can thank British falconer Scott Mason, in 2001 for his rescue of the birds with no hope. He was dubbed Birdman of Dagenham, for the birds he raised and helped the injured return to flight. It was his efforts that Parahawking became available so we could fly with a Bird of Prey, as our friend leading us to thermals we needed to have.

What are the Birds of Prey? 

Black Kite Vulture

The. Birds of Prey, Mr. Mason rescued and trained to fly, were the Griffon Vulture, Black Kite (pictured above), Egyptian vulture, and the Steppe Eagle. The birds are never taken from the wild unless injured and needing care.

Where can you go, Parahawking?

Scott Mason began with two Egyptian vultures, Birds of Prey, that he rescued and trained to be used in flight. It all started in Pokhara and is the only place in Nepal to offer such a divine experience.

What time of year can you go, Parahawking?

The best time of year is November through March, for the most astounding views without interferences due to the weather. 

What are the costs for Parahawking?

The prices vary depending on what to include in your package. However, it may start at $150 per person and up.

Thank you for your interest in the Birds of Prey, I invite you to see the detailed blog titled, “Parahawking, For Real? Extreme Sports Adventures and More”.
