Paragliding Featured in
Taiwan has a big variety of outdoor activities including extreme sports like paragliding. Paragliding draws tourists from Japan, Korea, and all over the world, to see spectacular views from a bird's point of view. Puli, in Nantou County is good for professionals with licenses. Be wary because it can get quite crowded on weekends in season. Saijia, in Pingdong County is very popular with Japanese and Korean pilots. Kaotai has several places to launch from the coastal mountains but the local club discourages this and at least one is within Taitung airport's TCA (Terminal Control Area). The Taidong club is run largely by tandem pilots so they prefer to keep all flying at Kaotai where visibility is better.
