ADVENTURE SPORTS IN LIMA

PARAGLIDING


The circuit of beaches of the Costa Verde has turned into a classical scenario for the airborne sportspeople in Lima.

The maximum height is obtained at the El Mirador building, with 200 metre heights. Though sometimes a thermal develops at the district of Barranco which can lift us up to 500 and 700 metres above the city.

The Gandhi Park, which is located between the districts of San Isidro and Magdalena, is the gathering spot of choice for the aficionados. It is an ideal zone when there is an incoming West wind. Here flights are absolutely dynamic, with laminar winds showing no turbulences; there are landing spots along all of the flight zone. Flying over the buildings' rooftops can be really entertaining, mostly during the southern hemisphere's summer.

Besides, Pachacamac, one of the most attended flight zones of Lima, is located only 30 kilometres south. The Paul Poblete Park and the zone of El Manzano (also frequented by mountain bikers) are the most likeable to the sportspeople.

The zone is especially attractive during the winter. Much grassland with herds and various bird species. If there is an incoming marine breeze, and the sun is at its zenith, turbulences will follow right after, thus flying away from the slope is advisable.

Long distance flights are not so favoured because the maximum tops are at about 900 metres above sea level, though flights of permanence are realised. The landings are ample though rather turbulent.

Pasamayo is an enormous almost vertical sand dune 400 metres high; it is located approximately 60 kilometres north of the city and it can be accessed from the Pan American Highway. The recommended spot is the summit of the "serpentine", named after the sinuosity of the road in that sector.

The flight is usually of the dynamic type. Some small thermals appear during the sunny days. The zone is very good for the practice of manoeuvres and for spending a superb day flying at over 800 metres above the ocean.

Towards the south, at Lunahuana, the flight is dynamic and somewhat thermal. Contrary to most of the coastal flight zones, here the winds are not laminar and they are influenced by turbulences proper to the broken thermals and the topographic surroundings.

The take off area is located 227 metres above the valley. Small distances can be flown from here. Landings are pretty good though you occasionally plummet really fast for the three final metres. The good thing is that they are cultivated farming lands, and therefore softer to the feet.
