AlpinAir’s van took us to the top of the mountain near Beatenberg. It took us about 20 minutes to reach there. After reaching the spot, we hiked for about a kilometer & reached the takeoff spot.Mark gave me a lot of interesting insights about paragliding in Interlaken, about paragliding as a sport & of course, about his story as an instructor. After knowing about takeoff & landing, we took off from the mountain (about 4,400 ft) & started descending.I could not believe that I was actually flying! Paragliding in Interlaken was literally a dream coming true. I could not thank Mark enough for this entire experience.
Switzerland is a beautiful country with beautiful people. To absorb the beauty of the Swiss countryside, a trek through Beatenberg is ideal. This countryside on the banks of Thun lake, is charming and offers various adventure sports as well. If you are a wildlife enthusiast, the higher reaches of Beatenberg is home to the rare ibex.
