Chicamocha Canyon

"Dos Ventanas" Flight Place

Chicamocha Canyon



We take off close to the CHICAMOCHA NATIONAL PARK (5 km up the national road, see how to get on our menu), we have a private takeoff place (The highest of the Chicamocha Canyon). It is a mountain of 1200 meters of difference with the Chicamocha River (1740 msnm) and a maximum height obtained in flight of 3000 msnm in optimal conditions.

It offers a flight between 20 and 30 minutes depending on the conditions that we find and the comfort of the passenger once on the flight.

The landing can vary, that is, if we gain good altitude, we arrive at the same place or otherwise in one of the optional pre-established places on the banks of the Chicamocha River, once there, the company's transportation takes care of the transfer to the meeting point initial.

It is advisable to make a reservation one or two days in advance in high season, since for each passenger there must be a pilot, because only one to seven flights can be reached by paragliding. Our capacity is 9 pilots.

Conditions for the flight:

Every flight depends on climatic and aerological conditions, therefore the pilot decides which is the right moment for the takeoff and if it is the case NOT TO FLY.

The pilot chooses the passenger with whom he wants to fly according to his weight, so it does not matter the order of arrival at the take-off site, but the weight and the conditions that we find, that is, if the wind is strong, we take off with the heavier ones and if it is soft with the lightest.

Recommendations: It is advisable to have a light meal before the flight, take a coat, sunscreen, repellent, hydration, long pants and adjustable footwear. Restrictions:

In our company, we deeply regret the fact of not flying people with some basic problems or restrictions, for us it is sad not being able to accompany them in this experience and we want to inform that we restrict the flight for people with the following problems or characteristics:

  • Cardiac problems (recent infarctions or less than one year, chest pain at the least effort (angina pectoris)
  • Pregnancy status
  • Vertigo (depending on the evolution time)
  • Hip replacement
  • Problems or spinal surgeries
  • Uncontrolled psychiatric diseases
  • Uncontrolled epilepsy
  • Problems that prevent walking (specific cases can be reason for analysis)
  • Uncontrolled thyroid diseases
  • Diabetes poorly controlled
  • Phobia at uncontrolled height

Additional there are cases where decisions are made based on the conditions of the day, as for example (there may be more cases) the weight of people, normally we do not fly less than 40 kg unless the wind is mild, just like People over 110 kg unless the conditions are a bit strong.

We also do not fly children under 6 years old and in the case of all under-aged (under 18 years old) it is necessary to fill out an authorization form for a responsible adult.

Transport:

The organization is willing to provide transportation (from San Gil or Panachi) if necessary, but it is better for the client to have his own for the following reasons.

1. If the flight you take is from the Chicamocha Canyon, once the flight is over, you can stay in the Chicamocha National Park all day if you wish, if not, it is likely that we will return as soon as the activity ends.

2. If, due to weather conditions or due to the client's own decision, the activity is not carried out and the company is transported, the amount of $ 10,000 per person must be paid.

The road to the Chicamocha National Park is all paved, just 400 meters away from the main road, accessible to all vehicles.

Our company has qualified staff, capable and experienced in this type of sports and will give everything to make your vacation AN ADVENTURE.
