Info about Flying here

The take-off of the 'Gorilla' mountain range in Karyoti Paramythias is the most promising in the area, having given many good flights.
It is located at an altitude of 830m in the middle of the Gorilla Mountains where the maximum height is 1658m. In front of it is the valley that crosses Paramythia Acheron the area of Fanari reaching the sea, and some mountains low 300-600m which reduce the intensity of the sea breeze in the summer months and create in turn quite good thermals,resulting in the area becoming ideal for long-haul flights and racing triangles.
The take-off also has a very good slope, is covered with grass and fits three fully developed paragliders. The area has thermal activity almost all year round and the flight can be long, with very well organized thermals.

You can see some flights from these place at Leonardo

- From takeoff  AI LIAS  - GKRIKA
- From takeoff  KYRA PANAGIA
- From takeoff  GLYKI ACHERON
