“The mountain area Baltoro-Muztagh around K2, Broad Peak and Concordia offers some of the most breathtaking views on this planet and I highly recommend a visit to everybody. The chance to then fly with the paraglider from these 8000m giant peaks is a dream come true and the experience of a lifetime!
The XXLite 2 offered amazing takeoff performance even with the very thin air at 8000m. Airspeed is much higher though and manoeuvres become more violent, so when I did some wingovers they became exertive very quickly and g-loads were surprisingly high 😉.
In addition to the stunning views in flight, getting down with the glider only takes ten minutes opposed to about eight hours of rather boring walking down.
Overall, a pretty unique experience!”
