What is a paragliding? Is it safe to fly in paragliding...?

The safest way to enjoy an extreme sensation of height.

Most people think that learning to fly a paraglider is a difficult thing to do but in fact, it is really quite easy and safe. Since it was introduced in Bali by early 1990, we recorded zero accident happened.

Paragliding is the simplest and most serene way to fulfill humankind’s oldest dream - free flight! The pilot jogs down a gentle slope and glides away from the mountain. There is no free-falling or jumping off of cliffs. The launches and landings are slow and gentle and, once in the air, most people are surprised by how quiet and peaceful the experience is.

The main flight zone and training center is located at Nyang Nyang beach near the stunning Uluwatu Great temples..

The scenery is breathtaking, comprising of rugged cliffs, pristine beaches, blue seas, temples, and waves breaking over coral reefs make for a marvelous place to learn to fly or just relax and enjoy the view.
