Dec 2011 ended with the visiting pilots from H/G having visited Diki Danda, Bandipur, Sirkot, Korchon. Flying conditions were not epic but flyable none the less, over the passed 14 days sarankot has been ok blue days mostly , inversion over the pokhara valley, tandems working but late solo acivatie mid to late afternoon , the green wall has been achievable .
So now were into
Jan 1st and guess what thick cloud cover and no Sarankot in sight from hotel roof. .
2nd 3rd and 4th see`s rain in the afternoon and evening ,
1st trip of the yr from Sirkot was 4 pilots from FINLAND and 1 from UK .
But have to say that Silvio from Madrid had the best run of December Korchon & Sirkot. now he`s off to Columbia for the competition , good luck Silvio.
So lets hope the weather starts to change for the better
Just got back from Pokhara..what an amazing place to fly..here is a little video teaser (english comentary) ..the place offers a lot of possibilities for some epic bivuac flying not just soaring Sarankgot.
Conditions in December were quite weak but in February it must be really good!
I stayed at the Hotel Garden ( http://www.hotel-garden-nepal.co.uk)
and can recommend this hotel. Very friendly and very helpful staff, really enjoyed my stay there.
