Crying Out Love, In the Center of the Sky! Paragliding in Yangpyeong

Forget about dates on the ground because it is time to soar into the sky. You can pretend to be the leading lady from the K-drama Crash Landing on You, who bumps into the man of her life, Ri Jeong-hyeok. Paragliding can be even more romantic if you are with your partner. Located about 50 min away from Seoul, Yangpyeong Paragliding Park offers visitors to launch from the highest altitude in Korea. The paragliding launch site in Yumyeongsan Mountain towers at 860 m above sea level and is widely known for its beautiful scenery. The platform’s elevation allows you to paraglide 2 or 3 times longer than the average flying time. The wide-open grassland at the launch site will be covered with wildflowers during summer and silver grass during autumn. Visitors can also enjoy watching the flowers and silver grass swaying in the wind. Looking down from the sky toward Yangsu-ri, where Namhangang River meets Bukhangang River, you are sure to be left speechless by the breathtaking view.

Yangpyeong Paragliding Park offers a wide range of programs, such as paragliding for beginners, tandem paragliding, and training for paragliding instructors. The park activities are managed by a team of highly reliable paragliders with more than 20 years of experience. Some are even members of the national paragliding team. Paragliding programs for the public include the 30-min special paragliding, paragliding with an instructor, and tandem paragliding for couples. The special paragliding program gives visitors a chance to take videos and photos of them taking off and soaring up into the sky by catching the rising air currents as well as landing. There is no doubt that the most popular program among couples is tandem paragliding. This program is Yangpyeong Paragliding Park’s signature program that allows you and your partner to paraglide side by side and have a unique conversation or a playful game at several hundred meters above the ground.
