Paragliding in Cappadocia is an opportunity for 20 minutes to feel like a bird, to enjoy the lunar landscapes of mysterious valleys from almost a kilometer in height. The launchpad for the parachute jump in Cappadocia is located in the heart of Nevsehir, the village of Chavushin. It is a village on the way from Avanos to Goreme National Park. Today the rocky city is abandoned, but since it is located right next to the road, there is no end to tourists here. Its peculiarity is the resemblance to a huge piece of cheese with large holes. In Chavushin, the Church of St. John the Baptist has been preserved, one of the most ancient in the area. Inside the building, you can find frescoes dating from the 7th-8th centuries. From the top of the city, there is a breathtaking view of the open-air Goreme National Museum.
What is a paragliding flight? A paraglider is a technically lightweight construction based on a gliding parachute. The main difference with a parachute is that the paraglider is used for level flight and the parachute is used for vertical flight. Due to its simple design and low weight, it is very easy to operate and learn. Experienced pilots can cover distances of up to 300 km and climb to an altitude of about 4000 meters.
