Take paragliding, crank it up a notch, and you have parawhawking. We fly with trained birds of prey, this is Kevin - an Egyptian Vulture, into the thermal currents. pretty unique experience, but I liked paragliding in Anjuna better due to the quality of flight alone (it was much smoother, more scenic, weather was better, and flight can be sustained for a lot longer).

the second day after I finished my trek, the Maoists called a strike in Pokhara, so all shopkeepers had to close their stores and no one was allowed to drive motorized vehicles in the streets. If you did, your shop would get burned and your car flipped and smashed. if you had a flight that day, you’d have to walk to the airport…luckily I didn’t.

Sunrise at Annapurna Base Camp, Annapurna Himal, The Himalayan Range, Nepal. Most amazing moment of my entire trip abroad.
Prayer flags in the foreground. Base camp in the lower right. Machhaphuchhare (“Fish Tail”) Mountain on the right - it is sacred to the god Shiva, and thus is off limits to climbing.
