All posts, Órgiva and environs, Stuff we find

Paragliding towards Órgiva

No, we haven’t taken up a new hobby but we do love this video of a chap paragliding in Las Alpujarras. It’s worth watching the whole five-minute video to see how these guys and girls do their stuff, from taking off with no wind, adjusting their equipment to landing.

From two minutes into the film you see Los Tablones and Órgiva in the distance as he heads south-west. He lands in the Rio Guadalfeo valley. Throughout most of the film, the Sierra de Lújar dominates.

It’s not every day you get to see familiar sights from above like this.
