Paragliding is one of the most thrilling and adventurous way of flying, so why not give it a try at SKILEB.com where you are given the opportunity to fly over Jounieh, Lebanon.
The take-off point is located 500m above sea level on the Harissa mountain where flyers will enjoy the view of the Mediterranean sea. The paraglider (an inflatable wing which inflates by the movement of air into its canopy) is laid flat on the top of the mountain facing the wind and the pilot will be connected to this paraglider with special straps.
