Tandem flying while Paragliding in Nepal involves a pilot flying with a passenger. Both have separate harnesses that are attached to each other and the wing. Paragliding harnesses are built for comfort and safety, they feel more like an armchair. Once launched the passenger just sits back, relaxes and takes in the epic scenery. Even taking pictures is not a problem. Due to the portable nature and easy launch characteristics of a para-glider (they fit into a rucksack) We can take them anywhere and fly them from most mountains in Nepal.
