Switzerland - Paragliding

I had the chance to make a tandem paragliding flight in the beautiful "Berner Oberland". From 1900 m. a. s. on the Niederhorn down to the "Höhenmatte" at Interlaken at 650 m. a. s.

Start on the Niederhorn ...
Alain, my pilot, is a well experienced pilot and a good observer. That helped to make the first attempt relatively easy and we had an good start on the first try ...

... happy in the air ... ... ;-) in the air ...
... so we could enjoy the steady flight down...

... we had a great view of Beatenberg and the Thunersee in the west and of Interlaken and the Brienzersee in the east.

just before landing after the happy landing
After a happy landing we had enough time to have a drink in a cafe at the Höhenmatte. For me it was a good experience which was over far too quickly. But maybe there will be anohter chance...

I would like to thank my pilot, Alain, of the Glidingstones paragliding team. For further information about paragliding in the "Berner Oberland" visit the Glidingstones homepage.
