- Firstly brief information about paragliding. What is that and how is it held? Paragliding is a flight on a large oblong parachute with or without an instructor. Sometimes it is also called tandem paragliding because most flights take place with a pilot. And during the flight, there will be two people. To try such a fly, we need to go to one of the high hills or mountains. After everything is ready, the participants just need to run 5-6 steps forward. Paragliding in Alanya begins at an altitude of 500 or 700 meters at the top of the Taurus Mountains.
- The second is parasailing. Unlike the first flight, this activity takes place over the sea with a round parachute. The parachute and the participants are on the yacht. While the program is being launched, the captain leads the ship quickly.
The parachute is tied to the yacht with a long, thick rope. As the ship moves faster, the rope slowly opens and the air begins to lift the parachute with a vortex.
