Paragliding in the “Slovenian Dolomites” – Triglav – Malo drugače!


When I fly, the altitude becomes relative. When I hike, I am much more aware of it. I have to strain myself for every feet. When I fly in rising air, feet simply accumulate. It is not uncommon to gain a floor of height in every second, sometimes even two and more. Mountains suddenly become childishly low. It took me one hour to fly from Kranjska Gora to Triglav. From a mile lower, ten miles distant and separated by many 6000 ft. mountains – Grpiška mountain. – Miha, Miha, do we hear each other? And all that using only 30 pounds of cloth. When I fly across the peaks, I repeatedly forget, how small we actuall are. The nature is unbelievable, it is worth of apprehensiveness… Their charms always tempt me. But this day was special. It was only a wish for three years, but it came. When people applaud you from the peak of the highest mountain – the symbol of your country and you fly above them with the greatest ease and climb towards the clouds, the experience of feelings becomes unique, strong and indescribable… – West wind. The day was not the calmest. Strong and at height a bit thorn apart thermals. Rocks and valley winds down below. Something usual for Julian Alps. I had also a new glider, which I was not used to it yet. The flight was not an everyday one, but my goal was achieved… Triglav! Huuh, duuuuude!

  1. Se veselim s teboj, da ti je tole ratalo. Spoštovanje in srečno še naprej!
    Pa zelo lepo dokumentirano v obliki videa, kot pri tebi vedno!

  2. Waaaaaaaaw, tole je pa neverjetno. Sploh se nisem zavedal, da je kaj takega možno brez bencina, in brez vrha višjega kot cilj. Si nisem mislil, da se da imeti tak pogled na Triglav, kako drugače kot skozi okno neke jeklene naprave. Super posnetek.

  3. SLOVENIA=PARAGLIDING OVER THE MOUNTAINS==LIFE TIME ONCE EXPERIENCE PARAGLIDING OVER THE HIGH MOUNTAINS==SCARY BUT VERY BEAUTIFUL…JUST HAVE TO DO IT AT LEAST ONCE…I KNOW THAT WILL NEVER FORGET IT..
