Meanwhile in Nepal…paragliding with a hawk…


So, apparently there’s this thing you can do now where you go paragliding with a bird of prey. It’s called…wait for it….”parahawking.”

I stumbled across a video of the activity that is…well, I must admit….very cool. So I dug around a bit and found out that there is a company that calls itself¬† “Parahawking…Share the Sky”¬† that offers people the chance to hit the skies in the Himalayas with a bird of prey.

The company supports vulture conservation and offers something really cool and unique…so hey, I’m all for it. Besides those birds look like they are having a blast.

Below is the video I first stumbled on and then another much longer video compilation video of parahawking in Nepal from the Share the Sky folks.
