Adventure “Parahawking”

Adventure (), Graham Saunders-Griffith (Gro) 35 min

 

The city Pokhara is embedded in the heart of Nepal, at the foot of the Himalayas. The origin of an admirable story started here in spring 2001. The falconer Scott Mason from England met by chance the owners of a travel company for paragliding in Nepal. Mason managed to convince both paragliding professionals to attempt the challenge and the adventure of teaching two falcons how to accompany a paraglider’s flight. For more than two years they worked with the two hawks Shadoko and Sappana. The trainer team shows and explains how they managed to train the hawks and to make them become true “flight attendants”.
