Cloudbase Paragliding in Wilderness
A paraglider is a flexible, inflatable, ultra light gliding wing, not a parachute, but a genuine aircraft wing in every sense of the word. The pilot inflates the glider, raises it above his head and ensures that it is fully open before taking off from any suitable slope. We do not “jump” off mountains, but run down a slope in order to get airborne; using the slope exactly like a regular aircraft uses a runway. The pilot then uses a combination of ridge lift and thermic lift to stay aloft, and can choose to land at the bottom of the very same hill or mountain, or sometimes cover vast distances.
