Pamukkale Paragliding Companies Best Flying Schools Flight Centers Tips Advices

While we were walking in the city, we saw a few people paraglided down from the mountain above. We asked the guide if we could do it and she said yes and she got us a minivan to take us there. After the travertines, me, Jonathan, Caroline and Sumin hopped on a minivan and got to the top in no time. There were a bit of people waiting in line to go paragliding so we decided to wait at the cafe nearby.

Thank god for that because the wind picked up a little too much and right before we had to cancel all trips that day, they were a korean girl who decided to do it anyway and the take off was abysmal. They had to run right almost to the cliff before the wind picked up and they were unable to control and land in time so they had to be up there for quite a while. We did not mind it being cancelled because we did not plan to do it anyway. As I told you before:

"No plan is the best plan"
After a long day in the sun, we came back to the hostel, grabbed a few beers and went straight to bed.

Day 6: We finally did it!
Early in the morning, me, Sumin and Caroline decided to catch the first bus going to Pamukkale to give paragliding a go again. Since we were all heading to Antalya after, it made sense to stop in Pamukkale and rest for a bit before taking another leg to Antalya.

I'm glad to say, we were able to do it the second time around. Since it was not too late in the day, the weather is much more stable and we were able to take off perfectly.

Sumin went first, followed by Caroline and then me. It was a smooth ride for me and Caroline but not for Sumin though. For some reason, she had to do an emergency landing inside the city of Hierapolis. It was very dangerous to land on a crowded area like that. Thankfully, there were not many people in themorning, and they landed safely.

At this point, I did not know that something went wrong for Sumin and I thought I would be landing at the same spot. My instructor told me it was not the case, and that was when I realized something went wrong with Sumin's flight.

The whole trip took 15 minutes and the view of the travertines from above was quite a sight to behold. The scale of the travertines was incomprehensible from the bottom.

Me and Caroline landed safely but we were pretty worried about Sumin. No one knew where they landed except me and my instructor so we had to coordiante between the team at the top to get a van to pick them up.

They landed safe though and we were reunited in no time. After that crazy adventure, we went to the bus station and waited for our bus to Antalya. We sat on the bus for the next 5 hours and we went separate ways as they were going to one of the coastal town while I stayed in Antalya thinking that I would be able to go do some hiking around the area. I was so wrong. Antalya is a big tourist city and in order to do some hiking in the Lycian way, I would have to go on a multi-days trip. I did not know that when I arrived and so I was left with a choice whether to backtrack my way back to Fethiye or carry on with my trip to Cappadocia.

Stay tuned for the next episode of my time in Turkey as I made a decision to backtrack my way to Fethiye and discovered paradise.
