Every year May through October the southerly trade winds roll in off the Indian Ocean like clockwork, making it possible to fly the southern coast of the Bukit Peninsula, from the Nikko Bali Hotel at Nusa Dua to the Puri Bali Villas at Nyang-Nyang. A total of 12 kilometres of soarable ridge ranging from 100 to 1,000 feet above sea level, suited for novice through to advanced paraglider pilots.
Paragliding in Bali is the simplest form of human flight. A paraglider is a non-motorized, foot-launched inflatable wing. It is easy to transport, easy to launch, and easy to land. The paraglider itself is constructed of rip-stop nylon from which the pilot is suspended by sturdy kevlar lines.
Most people think that learning to fly a paraglider is a difficult thing to do and in fact, it is really quite easy and safe.
With a paraglider, you actually fly like a bird, soaring upwards on currents of air. Paragliders routinely stay aloft for 3 hours or more, climb to elevations of 15.000', and go cross-country for vast distances.
You can make paragliding, like most adventure sports, as safe or dangerous as you want. It is of course crucial that you receive instruction from a certified professional and use safe equipment - professional schools will create as controlled a learning environment as possible.
- Paraglide with experienced professionals, above Balinese waters.
- Get a birds-eye view of the impressive Bali skyline.
- Complete your holiday memories with the perfect photo.
Here's a memory that's sure to be etched in your memory: the Bali sun setting in front of you, the sea below you, the shoreline beside you as people scattered beneath you look up to enjoy the scenic view.
Don't forget to bring your running/ sport shoes for this activity as flip-flops are strictly not allowed.
