Paragliding on Babadag Mountain, Oludeniz, Turkey
The start of my flight from 6500ft up to 7000ft then the 55 minute descent to the beach at Oludeniz, Turkey. Simply amazing.

Solo pilots are rather the exception here; this sometimes leads to long waiting times before launch (especially at 1200m), as the tandems have priority. Maps for Thermocompass http://thermocompass.netho... Many Acro stuff can be seen there.

- 300 m SSW - very difficult, very small, rocky, bushes; needs very good launch technique - 1200 m SW -rather small for the number of pilots, who want to launch; used when top is in clouds - 1700 m S -huge, main launch - 1800 m N - 1960 m N. S, E (anywhere on) Belcekiz Beach It is also nice to fly to Butterfly Valley (36.497262°N/ 29.127048°E) which is otherwise only reachable by boot . >> Check before when the last boot is going back to Öldenize. Then hang around at the beach together with the hippies which are living there. Go back in evenning after several landing beers. Normally via Dalaman Airport which is 1-1.5hr by car from Öldenize (taxi or shuttlebus) Shuttle: 20TL You need to pay also 18TL road tax BEFORE!! going up to babadag mountain. Get your pass at the stand of the forest service, which is on the left side of the beach. ATTN:if you don't have the card with the pre-paid road tax, you'll have to pay 30TL! (Prices 2015) Ask any tandem company at the beach for going up to the mountain (ie Reaction etc).

- Cross wind situation at the take off from time to time. Do not belief in the local tandems. There are flying under all circumstances. - at 'Cloud9' there are 2 screens which permanently show the wx on the mountain.
